Prof. Robin Wood taught his last course on Classical Hollywood at York University in 2007. I was fortunate enough to be studying there.
A brilliant film critic I immediately got fascinated with his approach towards ‘film – studies’ and film ‘criticism’. I video-interviewed him on the last day of our class.
Unfortunately, my wish to present him a copy of the documentary on him while he was alive was not fulfilled. He passed away on 18th December 2009 at the age of 78. I hope to complete my film where he candidly discussed various aspects of film ‘theory’, ‘criticism’ and the joy of watching cinema.
Perhaps this was his last interview.
