He has directed, written and produced over fifty feature films in Africa, India, Malaysia, Scandinavia, China, Europe and America. So You Wanna Be A Director? is an entertaining and witty travelogue, as well as an important document of film history.Annakin's book is forthright and pulls no punches. It has become a classic among directors' autobiographies. Annakin details the dizzying heights and bleak lows of his career. This master of family entertainment sounds a loud clarion call for a return to motion pictures that are fun for all of the family.
