Nestor Almendros (1930 - 1992)

2 posts in this topic

Nestor Almendros was one of the masters of cinematography and gay man.

He co-directed " Improper Conduct" a must see documentary about the persecution of homosexuals by Fidel and Raul Castro.  TCM really should have included him in the recent gay festival perhaps next year.

He won an Academy Award for Terrence Malik's "Days Of Heaven".


He also photographed one of my "guilty pleasures", "The Blue Lagoon".


He received a Cesar for Francois Truffaut's "The Last Metro".


He photographed one of my favorite films, "Bed and Board".


He wrote an autobiography, too, "A Man With A Camera" that was published in 1985.
