Top Producer Andrew Eaton to shine light on links between Ford and Lindsay Anderson


One of Europe’s most accomplished producers and co-founder of Revolution Films with Michael Winterbottom, Andrew Eaton will take part in an exclusive Q&A as part of the John Ford Ireland Film Symposium next weekend. This will follow the screening of the BBC Documentary which Eaton made with British director Lindsay Anderson (If, This Sporting Life). Anderson himself was a Ford-devotee and author of About John Ford, regarded as one of the most important books on the director.


Eaton has produced over forty feature films and TV series including some of his best known with Winterbottom; Code 46, 24 Hour Party People, A Mighty Heart and The Look of Love. He has also recently produced Irish feature Good Vibrations and Ron Howard’s upcoming Formula 1 biopic Rush.


At the post-screening Q&A Eaton will discuss the background on the making of the Documentary, and working with the director in preserving & acknowledging the great John Ford.

This is a FREE EVENT and will take place on Friday June 7 at 11am in The National Concert Hall, Dublin.
