From 14 to 18 July the British Film Institute's South Bank cinema centre will pay tribute to the UK film maker Jack Bond.
This will tie in with a release of four of his movies on BFI DVD on 13 July.
We anticipate this upcoming BFI season of films by this particular British Bond by following hot on the heels of the BFI's recent screenings featuring the other British Bond!

Jack Bond
made the first UK TV documentary on Salvador Dali for BBC TV (and Melvyn Bragg) in 1965, entitled Dali In New York. In 1967, he made the avant garde feature film Separation, which was written by and featured the late Jane Arden. The music was composed by Stanley Myers alongside a title theme tune composed by A Whiter Shade of Pale's Hammond organist, Matthew Fisher. The Other Side of the Underneath was made 1972. Seven years later Bond made Anticlock, the first film to utilise Sony Sureveillance Cameras in a plot about the watcher and the watched. By 1982 he was back making films for Melvyn Bragg at the Southbank Show. Most notably he produced two documentary firsts; namely, the first UK documentary on the German film director Werner Herzog, and the first UK biography of the writer Patricia Highsmith. Jack Bond is currently making a film about the screen actress Charlotte Rampling, which is due out in the autumn.

Contributors and music:
The interviews feature Jack Bond and Matthew Fisher, alongside music from Jane Arden, Matthew Fisher, and Procol Harum.
