like a library
I do not know much about Simon Channing Williams, who died last week. But I remember him very fondly from the documentary extras on the DVD of The Constant Gardener. One of those people who seems to carry a whole universe with him, bringing others benevolently into his orbit. This was evidenced, not least, in the organization he founded in Kenya after the production finished. He produced all of Mike Leigh's films for the last twenty years. My own favourite is Topsy Turvey, but I like many of them.
