Guy Green is well known to film audiences. Formerly a cinematographer, he was the first British D.P. to receive an Academy Award for his black and whit ephotography on David Lean’s “Great Expectations.” He founded the British Society of Cinematographers together with Freddie Young and Jack Cardiff.
Green worked with Lean on several films, and it was this close association that inspired him to give up cinematography at the height of his career to become a director. While directing two early pictures, “House Of Secrets” and “Sea Of Sand,” Green became associated with actors Richard Attenborough and Michael Craig, and “The Angry Silence” was the first conceived when the three were involved filming “Sea Of Sand” in the 140 degree heat of the Lybian desert.

It was Britain’s first entry at the Berlin Film Festival, where it won the International Critic’s Award.
