- BAFTA Tribute to Ken Adam
"BAFTA and Oscar winner Ken Adam defined the look of the early James Bond films with lavish and ingenious sets and international style: Dr. No, Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, Diamonds Are Forever, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker. The War Room he created for Stanley Kubrick's Dr Strangelove remains one of cinema's most iconic images, often cited by other filmmakers as a favourite movie set. Over five decades in the industry, Adam received nine BAFTA and five Oscar nominations and other key production credits include Barry Lyndon, The Ipcress File, Pennies from Heaven, The Madness of King George, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Addams Family Values to name but a few.
In this BAFTA Tribute and belated 90th Birthday Celebration, BAFTA will welcome fans and colleagues to explore Sir Ken's extraordinary work. Tributes will include Sir Michael Caine, Nicholas Meyer, Sir Roger Moore, Sir Ronald Harwood, Lewis Gilbert, Sir Christopher Frayling and design luminaries such as Julia Peyton-Jones and Alice Rawsthorn as well as video tributes from the current generation of production designers such as this year's BAFTA winner Guy Hendrix Dyas and his fellow nominees."
