Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and shot by Linus Sandgren, ASC, FSF, the 25th
installment of the James Bond franchise finds 007 (Daniel Craig) coming out of
semi-retirement to rescue a kidnapped scientist — and vanquish a villain (Rami
Malek) harboring a dangerous new technology — while contending with a fellow 00
agent (Lashana Lynch). Sandgren will detail his approach to the ambitious
production and shed light on his collaboration with Fukunaga and other key
members of the filmmaking team. Our coverage will also include a tribute to
Bond’s 25th adventure on the silver screen.

As part of our yearlong celebration of American
Cinematographer’s 100th anniversary, we revisit the turbulent
