As part of his recent research about Blacklisted Hollywood figures working in Europe, this film is curated by Andy Willis, Professor of Film Studies at the University of Salford and HOME’s Senior Visiting Curator: Film. Amongst others, he is the co-editor of 'Spanish Popular Cinema', and 'Chinese Cinemas, International Perspectives', and 'Film Stars: Hollywood and Beyond'. Earlier this year he curated 'Hollywood Blacklistees in Europe', a film season at HOME.
