A new retrocast has been added to the CineVegas website this week – the honoree conversation with Sir Ben Kingsley, who was honored with the Vanguard Actor Award at the 2007 Festival.
A four time Oscar nominee, Kingsley doesn’t just act – he embodies his characters and disappears behind a remarkable arsenal of moods and behaviors. He captured the complexity of selflessness and charity in GANDHI, a role for which he won the Oscar for Best Actor. He expressed the dignity of a servant struggling to maintain normalcy despite a deep sense of his own mortality in SCHINDLER’S LIST. Other memorable roles include SEXY BEAST, THE HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG and most recently, ELEGY and THE WACKNESS. Click here to listen to the podcast of the conversation with this truly remarkable actor.
