Elia Kazan is the director responsible for films such as On the Waterfront, A Streetcar Named Desire, Viva Zapata! and East of Eden, to name but a few. With Marlon Brando and James Dean he inaugurated a new age of screen acting - one closely connected to the New York Method School - that has left an indelible impression on American movies.

A Greek immigrant, Kazan was ferociously committed to dealing with the problems that beset American society: corrupt trade unionism in On the Water; anti-Semitism in The Gentlemen's Agreement; media manipulation in A Face in the Crowd; and ecology in Wild River.

Kazan's demand for an authentic intensity of performance from his actors brought a powerful emotionalism to American movies and created moments of cinema that live forever in the memory.
