Under inspelningen av Barry Lyndon matade Stanley Kubrick skådespelaren Leon Vitali med rå kyckling så att han skulle kunna kräkas i sin roll som duellant. Det blev starten på en livslång vänskap.

Leon Vitali gav upp sin lovande skådespelarkarriär för att ägna sitt liv åt att som regissörens högra hand möjliggöra hans vansinniga visioner. Vitali arbetade under decennier dygnet runt, han castade skräcktvillingarna i The Shining, ledde Kubricks reklambråk mot Warner Bros., ockulärbesiktigade varenda filmkopia av Eyes Wide Shut manuellt och fick förtroendet att avrätta Kubricks döende katt med ett hagelgevär. Tony Zierra tecknar ett kärleksfullt porträtt av en av filmhistoriens osynliga hjältar i en hyllning till alla omistliga filmarbetare som bara syns i slutet av eftertexterna.

Regissör: Tony Zierra

Filmworker is one of those rare projects that every storyteller dreams of finding, complete with a fascinating main character, controversy, and a built-in emotional arc. As a young man, Leon Vitali went in search of the ultimate creative experience - and he found it. Stanley Kubrick is cinema. He embodies the struggle to manifest everlasting work that pushes the boundaries of an art form. Everyone who was pulled into his orbit was fundamentally changed. Kubrick, in service to his own creativity, was the force who issued the challenge: “Are you willing to give everything you have for the cause?” Leon Vitali was one of the few who eagerly answered “yes” - and lived up to that commitment, despite the price he had to pay.
