Anglo-Scottish director born in 1936, the main theme in his film career, consisting of seven full-length films in just over twenty years, is the search for personal identity. From the self-betterment of Chariots of Fire (1981) to the affirmation of the main character’s personality in I Dreamed of Africa (2000), all of his characters face a process in which they must accept the contradictions in their lives, whether it be in the African jungle, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (1984) or the war of American independence, Revolution (1985).

The young Hudson worked on producing documentaries, becoming as from 1970 one of the most prestigious advertising directors in Great Britain. Having worked as second unit director on Alan Parker’s Midnight Express (1978), in 1981 he made his directorial debut with a movie that was to make him famous, Chariots of Fire, nominated for Academy Awards in seven categories and winner of four for music, script, costumes and Best Film. Other movies by Hudson are, Lumière et compagnie (1996), Lost Angels (1999) and My Life So Far (1999), in addition to the biographical documentary Fangio, about the life of the car racing champion.
