And so passes Allan King

The Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC) has reported the very sad news that pioneering cinéma vérité filmmaker Allan King has passed away in Toronto after a battle with brain cancer.

"The drunks, the dying, the emotionally disturbed, the couple whose marriage is imploding – Allan King showed them respect and never judged, and in turn, they shared their stories on camera." - Lee Ferguson: CBCNews

Thank you, Allan, for all your art, work and inspiration.
