Hollywood's oldest rebel and icon of the industry, Roger Corman endures as one of the most influential filmmakers in motion picture history. Almost single-handedly carrying the low-budget film industry, he is known as the Godfather of Independent Film and the King of B-Movies. He discovered a generation of talent, including Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorcese and James Cameron and brought the cinema of international auteurs such as Francois Truffaut, Ingmar Bergman, Federico Fellini and Akira Kurosawa to America.
In 2009, Roger was awarded the Academy Award for Lifetime Achievement. Relentlessly innovative, he remains on the cutting edge of new media and distribution platforms.
