Peter Medak — Cyprus — 2018 — 93'
Peter Medak set out to direct the movie Ghost in the Noonday Sun in Cyprus and England in 1973, starring Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan. Before the shooting began, the Greek captain delivering the Pirate ship to Kyrenia was so drunk that he crashed the ship into the quay. The production descended further after Peter Sellers lost confidence in the film and fired the producers and the DOP. Director Peter Medak takes a journey back to the island 42 years later, as the documentary recaptures how the production turned into a total disaster.
