Shirley Clarke

Director

“I was embarrassed for years to let anyone know I had won an Academy Award [for Robert Frost: A Lover's Quarrel With the World]. That wasn’t really a prize I wanted to win. I was happy to say that The Connection got a prize at Cannes. I was happy to say that The Cool World was the first independent film to play in Venice.”
