In London, New York, Rome, Venice, and Florence, City Secrets offers both discoveries and reflections from those artists, historians, and authors who know these cities best. This next step, which looks at the arts of book writing and movie making, includes contributions from such esteemed names as Martin Scorcese, Woody Allen, Wes Anderson, Anjelica Huston and much more besides. A must-have book, anyone buying this is also helping The Film Foundation which Martin Scorcese founded to raise funds for the restoration of the film and to promote the awareness of the unique history of cinema.
