Jonathan Demme

Demme in 2015 Robert Jonathan Demme ( ; February 22, 1944 – April 26, 2017) was an American filmmaker, whose career directing, producing, and screenwriting spanned more than 30 years and 70 feature films, documentaries, and television productions. He was an Academy Award and a Directors Guild of America Award winner, and received nominations for a BAFTA Award, a Golden Globe Award, and three Independent Spirit Awards.

Beginning his career under B-movie producer Roger Corman, Demme made his directorial debut with the 1974 women-in-prison film ''Caged Heat'', before becoming known for his casually humanist films such as ''Melvin and Howard'' (1980), ''Swing Shift'' (1984), ''Something Wild'' (1986), and ''Married to the Mob'' (1988). His 1991 psychological horror film ''The Silence of the Lambs'', based on the novel of the same title, won five Academy Awards, including Best Director and Best Picture.

His subsequent films earned similar acclaim, notably the HIV/AIDS-themed drama ''Philadelphia'' (1993), the supernatural Southern Gothic ''Beloved'' (1998), the conspiracy thriller ''The Manchurian Candidate'' (2004), and the independent drama ''Rachel Getting Married'' (2008). Demme also directed numerous concert films such as ''Stop Making Sense'' (1984), ''Neil Young: Heart of Gold'' (2006), and ''Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids'' (2016), and worked on several television series as both a producer and director.
