CineMasters: Jonathan Demme

Jonathan Demme was one of America’s most versatile, compassionate and exciting filmmakers, never covering the same ground twice and always presenting his subjects from a sympathetic perspective. His death earlier this year was a significant loss to contemporary cinema, and we mark his status as a CineMaster with a selection from his consistently brilliant body of work.
