I, Of Whom I Know Nothing

Audio Tracks 

Pablo Sigg’s I, of whom I know nothing was filmed during the Autumn and Winter of 2012 and 2013 at John Calder's home in Montreuil. Calder –Samuel Beckett's London publisher, collaborator and close friend– decided to move to Montreuil, outside Paris, to live in what once was the office and basement of an 8-storey apartment building constructed after the War. The film witnesses Calder's very particular domestic life, as well as his journey to London to visit for the last time legendary Beckett actress, Billie Whitelaw, at the old people's home for performing artists in Northwood, Middlesex.
