The Passing of Brian Guckian, Ireland
1972 - 03.10.2015

It is particularly poignant to be writing this obituary shortly after the Schauburg Todd AO Festival and on the eve of the Bradford Wide Screen Festival.

For it was in Bradford that my friendship with Brian began and thereafter developed in Karlsruhe.

Over the years, our friendship grew, extending to my wife Margaret. Year after year, the three of us would spontaneously form a group and in doing so we would greatly enhance our mutual enjoyment of the 70mm and Cinerama classics on offer through a free exchange of impressions and views.

We were looking forward to our reunion with Brian and were deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic news from Dublin. Brian achieved much in his tragically short life. He was a passionate advocate for film, at a time when film exhibition was becoming increasingly rare, less valued and appreciated.

A co founder of the 70mm workshop, his scholarship and research made a considerable contribution to our knowledge of the subject, bringing about a revival of interest in 70mm; with festivals dedicated to the format springing up around the world. New 70mm films are in production or are about to be released. The climate had to be more favourable to make it happen. It took learning, dedication and advocacy to bring this climate about. He wrote many articles on the subject. One in particular, is outstanding and should be read by anyone with a serious interest in this, the most precious of mediums. I leave the last word to Brian.
