Michael Blackwood

Documentary Filmmaker

Independent documentary filmmaker Michael Blackwood has directed and produced more than 150 films about art and culture. Over the course of his career, Blackwood has realised a body of work dedicated to the faithful recording of the lives and creative processes of leading contemporary artists, architects and other cultural figures in the fields of music, dance, philosophy and science in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Blackwood’s films are characterised by a direct, anecdotal reportage fostered by the filmmaker’s policy of minimal intervention.  Driven by an urgent concern to capture and preserve the true voices of his subjects, Blackwood’s objective was to collect a rich documentation that would educate his audiences and promote an unfiltered understanding of contemporary art and its protagonists.
