John Huston & The Dubliners is a perceptive documentary on legendary director John Huston and his working methods, shot on the set of his film The Dead (1987).

Documaker Lilyan Sievernich (whose husband Chris is an executive producer of The Dead) succeeds in revealing, by interviews with Huston, his cast and crew members, plus verite footage of scenes being filmed and rehearsed, how Huston gets exactly what he wants by gentle suggestions, cajoling and simply doing things till they come out right.

When Sievernich presses Huston with a leading question or threatens to become overly analytical towards his work, he smoothly scoffs at such notions and sets the discussion back on track in self-effacing fashion. As his film editor Roberto Silvi says: ‘He’s one of the last gentlemen in this industry.’

Docu give glimpses of some moving scenes from The Dead, including 78-year-old actress Cathleen Delany singing a song, coached by Irish tenor Frank Patterson, who’s also in the cast.
