Julien Temple (b. 1953, London, U.K.), on discovering his interest in film after seeing Jean Vigo’s films, left history and architecture and enrolled at the National Film and Television School, where he graduated in film direction in 1975. A member of the punk scene, his first film was the short, Sex Pistols Number 1 (1977), followed by the feature documentary, The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle (1980), also dedicated to the Sex Pistols. He gained fame as a pop video director (working with performers like David Bowie, Tom Petty and the Blur), while continuing to make fiction films like Earth Girls are Easy (1988), Vigo (1998), and musical documentaries. His most recent films include: The Filth and the Fury (2000), Pandaemonium (2000), Scissor Sisters: Return to Oz (2004), Glastonbury (2006) and Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten (2007). The Eternity Man is his first film to combine opera and classical music.
