Peter Brook - The Tightrope
The Tightrope

A film by Simon Brook

2012 France, Italy - Documentary


For the very first time in 40 years, Peter Brook, one of the major directors of contemporary theatre, has agreed to raise the curtain and allow his son Simon Brook to film behind the scenes and to reveal the secrets of his approach. This unique and personal film takes us beyond the intimacy of a workshop, into a philosophical experience, on a tightrope...
