Film Description

Based on Christopher Isherwood's semi-autobiographical stories which would later inspire the hit musical 'Cabaret', I Am a Camera is set in Berlin in the 1930s, where a young English writer (Laurence Harvey) takes to sharing a flat with vivacious nightclub singer Sally Bowles (Julie Harris).
