Illumination: The Origins of In Darkness

The Oscar nominated In Darkness, directed by Agnieszka Holland (Europe Europa, To Kill a Priest, Washington Square, Copying Beethoven), is based on the true story of Leopold Socha. This emotional and gripping film follows Socha's progression from sewer worker to sometimes burglar to hero, as he gradually takes on the role of provider and protector for Jewish refugees who are hiding in the sewers of Lvov. With a distinguished cast that includes Robert Wieckiewicz, Benno Furmann, Agnieszka Grochowska, Maria Schrader, and Hebert Knaup, In Darkness is up against films like Asghar Farhadi's A Separation and Philippe Falardeau's Monsieur Lazhar in the Best Foreign Feature category for the 2012 Oscars. Tribeca recently sat down with Holland to discuss how she got involved with her latest project, her extended post-production process, and her recent segue into directing acclaimed television series like The Wire, The Killing and Treme.

Pete Postlethwaite: a career in clips

The actor Pete Postlethwaite died yesterday at the age of 64. We look back over his career in clips

It's difficult to know which is the more telling statement about Pete Postlethwaite, who died yesterday. That Steven Spielberg called him "the best actor in the world", after working with him on Jurassic Park sequel The Lost World. Or that Postlethwaite reacted to the praise with such dry deprecation: "I'm sure what Spielberg actually said was, 'The thing about Pete is that he thinks he's the best actor in the world.'"

A man with a face just made for immortalising on Mount Rushmore, Postlethwaite was an ensemble actor to his core; transparently decent and generous, hardly a limelight hogger. The role that first brought him to the attention of most people was Giuseppe Conlon, inmate dad to Daniel Day-Lewis's falsely imprisoned Guildford Four suspect Gerry in 1993's In the Name of the Father.
