Happy June, American Masters fans!This month, American Masters is proud to present By Sidney Lumet to mark the legendary director’s birthday on June 25.

By Sidney Lumet

Prolific and versatile filmmaker Sidney Lumet (1924-2011) made 44 films in 50 years, earning the Academy Honorary Award for lifetime achievement after four Oscar nominations. Considered a quintessential New York filmmaker, Lumet frequently used New York City’s urban mettle to infuse his films with a realism and intensity that kept audiences in suspense while prodding them to consider their own morality. Directed by Nancy Buirski.
