This is a Photograph - Born and educated in Hungary, Albert Kish immigrated to Canada in 1956. After working as a photographer and freelance filmmaker, he spent three years at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a senior editor. In 1967, he joined the National Film Board (Montreal) for a long and distinguished career. He has directed and edited over 30 films, winning numerous awards, amongst them the Canadian Film Award (1971) for This is a Photograph.
