15 May 2012

This June, Sky Arts will broadcast a new film by director Tony Palmer on the life and times of Athol Fugard, in honour of the playwright’s 80th birthday.

The 139-minute film Falls the Shadow: The Life and Times of Athol Fugard has been commissioned by Portobello Films and for Sky by Siobhan Mulholland. It is produced by David Elstein and Eric Abraham.

The documentary is the first ever full-length profile of Fugard which explores his past, his influences, his artistic development and his continuing themes. At the centre of the film is an extensive interview with Fugard.

The film features unprecedented access to some of the world’s most remarkable performers and associates who are most familiar with his craft including ex-Presidents Nelson Mandela and F.W de Klerk, Alan Rickman, James Earl Jones, Dame Janet Suzman, Nadine Gordimer, Sir Ben Kingsley, Sir Antony Sher, and Pieter-Dirk Uys.
