Living the Light and Brain, perception and filmmaking

Join us on Sunday October 28. from 10 – 16.30 where we, in collaboration with Dansk Filmfotograf Forbund (DFF), have arranged 2 very different masterclasses.

From 10.00 – 12.30 director and cinematographer Claire Pijman NSC
from Holland will show her documentary Living the Light,
an intimate look at the cameraman who shot Down by Law,
Breaking the Waves and Paris, Texas.

The late Dutch cinematographer Robby Müller "had a permanent
influence on the film language overall," and his low-tech,
innovative style and expressive use of light —
on display in such ground-breaking art house features as
Paris, Texas, Down by Law and Breaking the Waves,
inspired a generation of filmmakers.
Claire Pijman's documentary Living the Light – Robby Müller,
finished shortly before Müller's death earlier this year,
promises an intimate look at the man and his art,
seen from his own perspective and those who knew him best.
Claire Pijman had access to his personal archive to create an
extraordinary film essay.
The film premiered at Venice International Film Festival on Sept. 4, 2018.

Claire Pijman will introduce the film (duration 1:28)
and afterwards hold a Q & A

 

After lunch we will continue with Elen Lotman ESC
