No Subtitles Necessary: Laszlo & Vilmos
NTSC Format — Green Friendly Eco-Wallet DVD Packaging used.
"No Subtitles Necessary" follows the lives of renowned cinematographers Laszlo Kovacs and Vilmos Zsigmond from escaping the 1956 Soviet invasion of Hungary to present day. As film students in Hungary, they shot footage of the Russian invasion of Budapest and subsequently volunteered to smuggle it out of the country. Barely escaping with their lives, they fled to America and settled in Hollywood, eventually saving enough money to buy their own 16mm camera to begin shooting movies.
Both rose to prominence in the late 60's and 70's having shot films such as "Easy Rider," "Five Easy Pieces," "McCabe and Mrs. Miller," "Deliverance," "Paper Moon," and "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." During that time, working with directors including Robert Altman, Bob Rafelson, Peter Bogdanovich, and Martin Scorsese, they helped define a new American film aesthetic, and pioneered innovative, fearless ways to tell stories.
