My friend Sam( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Sam Frears is thirty nine and was born with the rare genetic disorder, familial dysautonomia (FD), a condition almost exclusively affecting Ashkenazi Jews. Originally Sam was given only a fifty percent chance of making it to his fifth birthday. This film follows him during his everyday life as he attempts to achieve his dreams of becoming an actor and finding the love of his life. As the son of director Stephen Frears and mother Mary-Kay Wilmers, the Editor of the London Review of Books, Sam lives a privileged life in terms of not having to earn money and being part of a close-knit London circle. However, the condition is progressive and Sam's sight, in particular, is deteriorating. Interspersed with Sam's everyday life, his family and friends recount his childhood and describe his achievements and struggles. Particularly poignant is Sam's struggle over whether or not to tell a female friend Joanna about his feelings for her at the risk of losing her friendship. The programme ends as Sam enjoys his 39th birthday party

"Leonid Eitingon was a KGB assassin who dedicated his life to the Soviet regime. He was in China in the early 1920s, in Turkey in the late 1920s, in Spain during the Civil War and, crucially, in Mexico, helping to organize the assassination of Trotsky. 'As long as I live', Stalin said, 'not a hair of his head shall be touched.' It did not work out like that. Max Eitingon was a psychoanalyst and a colleague, friend and protégé of Freud's. He was rich, secretive and -- through his friendship with a famous Russian singer -- implicated in the abduction of a White Russian general in Paris in 1937. Motty Eitingon was a New York fur dealer whose connections with the Soviet Union made him the largest trader in the world. Imprisoned by the Bolsheviks, questioned by the FBI. Was Motty everybody's friend or everybody's enemy?"--Back cover
