The remarkable, untold story of Leon Vitali who gave up fame and fortune to serve as Stanley Kubrick’s right-hand man.

After Vitali’s acclaimed performance as 'Lord Bullingdon' in Barry Lyndon in 1975, the young actor abandoned his own thriving career to become Kubrick's right-hand man. For more than twenty years, Leon played a crucial role behind-the-scenes helping Kubrick create and consolidate his legendary body of work.

In Filmworker, Leon's candid, often funny, sometimes shocking memories of working with the legendary director are woven together with the use of previously unseen photos, videos, letters, notebooks, and memos from Leon's own private collection. But what compelled Leon Vitali to make such a surprising and unusual choice? Filmworker explores the bittersweet consequences of Leon’s life-changing decision, and the overwhelming excitement of working closely with one of the most brilliant and demanding artists in cinema history.

'Filmworker is a revealing and stirring celebration of one of cinema’s unacknowledged heroes.' The Guardian
