To our knowledge, cinematographer Isidore Mankofsky may have beeninvolved in more academic films than any other individual in his profession. His workfor Encyclopaedia Britannica was inventive, and, more than occasionally,extraordinary (note the gargantuan human hand on the beach in 'Beach: River ofSand'). After his career in academic film, he went on to a brilliantcareer in feature films ('Somewhere in Time'). Below, you'll find hisbiography and extensive academic filmography.
