THE GHOST OF PETER SELLERS - Official Festival Trailer


A comedy genius, a hot new director and a 17th Century pirate film. What could possibly go wrong?

In 1973 Peter Sellers embarked on a pirate comedy for Columbia Pictures. He lost confidence with the film immediately and tried to sabotage it, firing the Producers then turning on his friend the Director, Peter Medak.

At its core lies the story of an unraveling production but also the tale of a young Director firmly on a path to greatness. Medak had made 3 back-to-back successes; most notably ‘The Ruling Class’ in ‘72 with Peter O’ Toole.

This film changed his life forever.

After 43 years the wounds have barely healed for Medak and this is his opportunity to tell the story and finally release the weight associated with its failure. The Ghost of Peter Sellers is a comic-tragic feature doc about what it takes to be a film director and survive your biggest disaster.

Featuring appearances by: Peter Medak Joe Dunne Simon van der Borg Norma Farnes Susan Wood John Heyman John Goldstone David Korda Ruth Myers Piers Haggard Joe McGrath Costas Evagorou Murray Melvin Costas Demetriou Dr. Tony Greenburgh Dennis Frazer Rene Borisewitz Robert Wagner Victoria Sellers Sandy Lieberson Maggie Abbott Rita Franciosa Antony Rufus Isaacs Directed by Peter Medak Produced by Paul Iacovou Visit the official website: http://www.theghostofpetersellers.com

I reckon that there must be many films that have a more interesting behind the scenes story than anything that could have gotten on screen.

A husband-and-wife team play detective, but not in the traditional sense. Instead, the happy duo helps others solve their existential issues, the kind that keep you up at night, wondering what it all means.





Meanwhile, behind the scenes.....

An old photo pushed the boundaries of curiosity! Paul Iacovou talks about the ideas behind creating a Hollywood documentary on the island of Cyprus that is slowly becoming larger than life.
