Kinolibrary Exclusively Represent Transatlantic Films
New collection including rare music performances, in HD with recording rights including
Kinolibrary is thrilled to represent Transatlantic Filmsâ€™ vast collection of archival material. Founded by Revel Guest in 1968, a woman among men in the industry and a pioneer of independent and documentary filmmaking in the UK, Transatlantic Films has since been intimately documenting iconic personalities and communities within music, theatre, film and art.
From exclusive interviews at home with Marc Bolan and Rod Stewart, to travelling the world with Placido Domingo, Transatlantic revealed new insights into well-known personalities of the 20th century. They followed Norman Mailer on the mayoral campaign trail and flew with Lord Lichfield on international fashion assignments, while their archive of backstage rushes contains unseen performances by the likes of Fleetwood Mac and the Faces, as well as blues legends Muddy Waters and Champion Jack Dupree.
Other highlights include rare interviews with renowned directors Robert Bresson and Francois Truffaut along with a series by Peter Greenaway profiling musical outsiders like John Cage and Philip Glass. Check out our Youtube playlist for some clips from the collection.
Now for the first time, this collection is commercially available as a rich source for programme makers with an undiscovered treasure trove of rushes just waiting to be seen. Thanks to new HD scans, the material can be explored and licenced with music recording rights included. Please contact us for more details.
Kinolibrary is an archive film agency representing remarkable and rare footage from around the world.
