The Last Impresario
Flamboyant, talented, charming... A true international man of mystery - who is Michael White? In this intimate documentary, filmmaker Gracie Otto introduces us to this larger-than-life phenomenon - Michael White. The London theatre and film impresario produced over 300 shows and movies over the last 50 years. Bringing to the stage the risqué productions of Oh! Calcutta!, The Rocky Horror Show and to the screen Monty Python’s The Holy Grail, as well as introducing Merce Cunningham, Pina Bausch and Yoko Ono to London audiences, he irrevocably shaped the cultural scene of 1970s London. Following a chance encounter with White in Cannes 2010, Gracie Otto has created an intriguing tribute to a truly fascinating entertainment figure with a remarkable cultural legacy.
