Scottish filmmaker, Bill Douglas

If you followed Edna's sites over the years, you know I have mentioned Peter Jewell and the Bill Douglas Centre at the University of Exeter. I met Peter Jewell 10 years ago in London. He was the founder for the Centre back in 1994.

He has been a longtime supporter of Edna, so it has been great to see this documentary about his longtime friend. Called 'Intent of Getting the Image' it covers his life and his years as a filmmaker and collector.

This month, Bill Douglas have been remembered at a special event in Scotland. In honor of this event, here is a look at this special documentary, that is available on The Bill Douglas Trilogy from BFI. It's about hour, so I will post in four parts. Part one and two today.
