Join the BAFTA Award-winning director Paul GreengrassFeaturing a one-hour conversation and Q&A session hosted by Jim Carter followed by a special screening of The Bourne Ultimatum.
Born in Surrey, Paul Greengrass began his career producing and directing ITV’s pre-eminent current affairs programme World In Action, and has effortlessly moved between documentary and drama ever since.
His first film, Resurrected, told the true story of a British soldier with amnesia who was missing presumed dead during the Falklands war. Two subsequent docudramas, The Murder Of Stephen Lawrence and the Bloody Sunday, both won BAFTA awards, as did Omagh, which he co-wrote, about the 1998 Real IRA bombing.
Greengrass went on to direct The Bourne Supremacy – the acclaimed sequel to The Bourne Identity – and two further instalments to the saga, The Bourne Ultimatum and 2016’s Jason Bourne.
He earned an Oscar nomination for United 93, his real-time dramatization of the hijacked flight which crashed into a field in Pennsylvania in the September 11 terrorist attacks, and his 2013 Captain Phillips – another true story starring Tom Hanks as the captain of a cargo ship which was hijacked by Somali pirates – earned another six Oscar nominations including Best Film.
Greengrass is set to reunite with Captain Phillips producer Scott Rudin to direct a new version of George Orwell’s 1984 and a feature on the final days of Martin Luther King Jr., Memphis.
