FILMWORKER is a new documentary that tells the story of Leon Vitali and his role as Stanley Kubrick’s right-hand man during all of Kubrick’s productions in the final part of his career and leading up to his death in 1999.
It’s a rare person who would give up fame and fortune to toil in obscurity for someone else’s creative vision. Yet, that’s exactly what Leon Vitali did after his acclaimed performance as Lord Bullingdon in Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon. The young actor surrendered his thriving career to become Kubrick’s loyal right-hand man. For more than two decades, Leon played a crucial role behind-the-scenes helping Kubrick make and maintain his legendary body of work. The complex, interdependent relationship between Leon and Kubrick was founded on devotion, sacrifice and the grueling, joyful reality of the creative process. By entering their unique world we come to understand how the mundane gives rise to the magnificent as timeless cinema is brought to life at its most practical and profound level.
“Stanley Kubrick may have been a cinematic genius, but he was only able to accomplish his later masterworks thanks to the devoted assistance of his right-hand man Leon Vitali, who receives his due in this sterling documentary—one of the year’s best.”

Meet the Patels
(2015, rated PG, 1h 28m)
Directed by siblings Ravi Patel and Geeta Patel, this award-winning film comes to you from Producer Janet Eckholm (AMERICAN SPLENDOR) and Academy Award Winning Executive Producer Geralyn Dreyfous (BORN INTO BROTHELS/THE SQUARE) and PBS. Meet the Patels is about Ravi Patel, an almost-30-year-old Indian-American actor who enters a love triangle between the woman of his dreams and his parents. Meet the Patels uses humor to address a timely social issue: In early 2009, directors, sister and brother team, Geeta and Ravi Patel began to explore and document the societal pressures of marriage in their first-generation Indian-American family. Through research in India and America, they discovered that their “Indian Issue” was more of an “American Issue”: the majority of Americans with strong cultural and religious roots shared a serious psychological conflict when it came to dating (and marrying) outside of their skin color, culture, religion, and ethnicity.
