Tony Zierra

Leon Vitali gave up his career as an actor to work for Stanley Kubrick on anything and everything he wanted. But after Kubrick’s death, he was set adrift, pursuing his work without support, without recognition, with little access and less money. It was in Los Angeles, toiling in obscurity, that Director Tony Zierra came across him. Tony talks to Dr. Garth Twa about the incredible story of Leon Vitali.


Film has dream, film has music. No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul. - Ingmar Bergman
