Peter Suschitzky, ASC, was awarded this year’s Pierre Angénieux ExcelLens in Cinematography Prize at Cannes. This was the opportunity for us to meet with David Cronenberg’s faithful fellow traveller for a filmed interview in English. His high-profile filmography also contains a few cult classics like The Empire Strikes Back, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Mars Attacks.

Peter Suschitzky was a member of the jury of Critic’s Week in 2015, and his work was also featured in Competition last year with Matteo Garone’s film Tale of Tales. Peter is passionate about the visual image, and he has just published a first book of photographs entitled Naked Reflections, published by Schist Publishing of The Netherlands.
