Overview:


Michael White might just be the most famous person you've never heard of. A notorious London theatre and film impresario, he 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 and The Holy Grail, as well as introducing Merce Cunningham, Pina Bausch and Yoko Ono to London audiences, White irrevocably shaped the cultural scene of 1970s London. Playboy, gambler, bon vivant, friend of the rich and famous, he is now in his late seventies and still enjoys partying like there's no tomorrow. In this intimate documentary, filmmaker Gracie Otto introduces us to this larger-than-life phenomenon. In a film featuring interviews with 50 of his closest friends including Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, John Waters, and Barry Humphries and, of course, the man himself, Otto pays a vibrant tribute to a fascinating entertainer.
