Widow of British director of The Red Shoes wants to publish his ‘stunning’ diaries
As Martin Scorsese’s longstanding editor, Thelma Schoonmaker, prepares to receive the British film industry’s top accolade, a Bafta fellowship, she has revealed plans to honour the memory of another great film maker: her late husband Michael Powell.
“I want to get Michael’s diaries published,” said the three-times Oscar winner, who has worked hand in glove with Scorsese over five decades. “They are stunning, and I want people to be able to read about all the great movies we lost; the ones he had hoped to make.”
