These are a selection of behind-the-scenes photographs taken by John with a Leica M Type 240 for the film, Sins of a Father.
“Last year Mr. Leader reassembled the key surviving members of his old cast — Mr. Bates died in 2003 — and remade the film, an almost preposterous undertaking. He added about 25 minutes set in the mid-1980s, grafting a third generation onto what had been a two-generation drama set in the early 1960s, with flashbacks to the war. Now the film, retitled Sins of a Father, is returning from the cinematic netherworld and embarking on its second life at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where it will compete in the independent-film division.” William Grimes for The New York Times
