Sir Alan Parker (1944- 2020) A Tribute

He hailed from Islington, North London,

A modern British great visionary on the silver screen,

Conquering both sides of the Atlantic with his cinematic talents,

Bugsy Malone, Fame, Midnight Express, Pink Floyd The Wall, Misssisisppi Burning, Evita, The Comittments- he created the most unforgettable films we'd ever seen.

Knighted by Her Majesty, The Queen,

Honoured by a fellowship from Bafta,

British film lost a great director and legendary genius,

Who will fill his shoes now in British cinema, the next chapter?
