Anthony Wonke: ‘The Man Who Walked Around The World’ an archive-led film

New Delhi – Director Anthony Wonke says his documentary about a 200-year journey of Scotch whisky icon Johnnie Walker that started in a grocery shop, titled The Man Who Walked Around The World, has an art film aesthetic. Wonke, a Emmy and triple Bafta-winning said: “The Man Who Walked Around The World has an art film aesthetic. It is a predominantly archive-led film but at its heart you are exploring the insides of an institution. You are trying to understand how an icon works.” In 2015, he made a British documentary film on Portuguese football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, titled Ronaldo, about which he said: “I think that’s where it’s similar to my other films, like Ronaldo or Star Wars — these are big iconic symbols. Trying to understand that and who they are and their cultural relevance is interesting, and brings some similarities to my previous films. Otherwise it is quite light-hearted in its tone, but it is still trying to address deeper, more important and contemporary subjects of today.”
