Beckett, Samuel, 1906-1989.

Description

"Filmed a year before the author's death in 1989, these special studio recordings of Eh Joe, Footfalls, and Rockaby--brief, concentrated, and pared down to the absolute essentials, even to the exclusion of color--are the definitive productions, made in collaboration with the Nobel Laureate himself and featuring his favorite and most-trusted actress, Billie Whitelaw. Together these plays explore the themes of consciousness and self-image in Beckett's inimitable style"--Container.
In production with Sueddeutscher Rundfunk, Stuttgart ; Reiner Moritz Associates, London ; in association with Channel four Television
Director, Walter D. Asmus ; producers, Alyson Wood, Werner Sommer
