The Last Impresario (Otto, 2013): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 8.40pm

This screening is part of the Scalarama season which runs throughout September. Full details here.

Here is the BFI introduction:
Director Gracie Otto pays a vibrant tribute to a fascinating entertainer – possibly the most famous person you’ve never heard of! Notorious London theatre and film impresario Michael White produced over 300 shows and movies over the last 50 years, including risqué productions of Oh! Calcutta!, The Rocky Horror Show and Monty Python’s The Holy Grail. This intimate documentary introduces us to this playboy, gambler, bon vivant and friend of the rich and famous via interviews with Naomi Watts, Kate Moss, John Waters, Barry Humphries and more.
