Birthday: Oct 23, 1936

Birthplace: Chicago, Illinois, USA

A Chicago-born maverick director who has tackled a wide range of projects with consistent intelligence and style, Philip Kaufman shared the Prix de la Nouvelle Critique at Cannes for his first feature "Goldstein" (1964). Based on Kaufman's unfinished novel and co-written and co-directed with Benjamin Manaster, "Goldstein" was loosely based on a Hassidic tale about a old man who mysteriously emerges from Lake Michigan and alters the lives of three Chicagoans and introduced the recurrent theme of hero-worship found in many of the director's subsequent efforts. Despite receiving critical acclaim at Cannes, the film was virtually overlooked when it debuted in the USA.
