«Nostromo: David Lean’s impossible dream» opened the TCM Festival in Madrid

Georges presented the documentary film «Nostromo: David Lean’s Impossible Dream», which opened the TCM Festival on November 30th, 2017, in Madrid.

Georges Corraface was slated to play the title role in «Nostromo», based on the Joseph Conrad novel and destined to be Sir David Lean’s final masterpiece. The documentary film by Goya-winning director Pedro González Bermúdez, «El Sueño Imposible de David Lean», charts the six years of the production’s preparation which ended with the legendary director’s death in 1991 – just weeks before filming was due to start.

The documentary features interviews with British playwright Cristopher Hampton, actor Georges Corraface and CA News editor, Richard Torné. It’s illustrated with archive images, screen tests of Tilda Swinton, Alan Rickman and Georges Corraface, as well as story boards and drawings which David Lean and his team prepared for the shoot.
