Masterclasses by Olivier Assayas, Béla Tarr, Andrea Arnold and Barry Jenkins at IFFR 2017

Acclaimed filmmakers Olivier Assayas, Béla Tarr, Andrea Arnold and Barry Jenkins will be attending the 46th edition of International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), where they will give masterclasses on their work and influences. These masterclasses are part of an extensive line-up of talks centred around IFFR’s themed programmes and unique, one-off film screenings.

French filmmaker Olivier Assayas (Irma Vep, Clouds of Sils Maria) will talk about his previous works, his main influences and his latest film Personal Shopper, which also screens at the festival. In a rare masterclass, influential Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr (Sátántangó, The Turin Horse) will be talking about his career, with illustrations from in particular his 2000 feature Werckmeister Harmonies. Tarr’s work is currently featured in an exhibition in EYE. Andrea Arnold’s previous films Red Road and Fish Tank both won the Jury Prize at Cannes. Her masterclass will be on the creative process of her latest hit film, American Honey, which also screened in competition in Cannes 2016. Barry Jenkins’ second feature Moonlight received rhapsodic reviews and was hailed by many critics as the best film of the year. Four months after its premiere, the film had already picked up over 140 awards. In this masterclass, Barry Jenkins will talk about his vision as a director, his skyrocketing success and the challenges of filmmaking.
 
Four talks and special screenings are part of the Parallax Views programme. Film historian Thomas Elsaesser will explain his theory of abjection on the basis of films from the programme. A special screening of Pablo Larraíns Jackie will be preceded by a video essay by Kevin B. Lee and followed by a conversation with film journalists Jan Pieter Ekker and Dana Linssen. The screening of Burma Storybook will be followed by a conversation concerning poetry and cinema, in collaboration with Poetry International. And finally, Mark Cousins’ Bigger Than The Shining. This video essay will be screened one final time, after which Cousins will destroy it with an axe.

The Perspectives programme also features a number of talks. Panel Picture Palestine: Perpetual Recurrences is a panel featuring representatives of the new generation of Palestinian filmmakers and video artists. In Criss-Cross: Gangland, Copland, Terrorland famous faces from French crime cinema talk about how their work embodies the dark side of ‘la grandeur de la France’. Black Rebels: Minding the Gap features talks, films, music and interviews that traverse the past, present and future of Black cinema. With Charles Burnett, Ernest Dickerson, Keith Piper and Tirzo Martha. The screening of Nocturama will be followed by an interview with director Bertrand Bonello about how the film reflects the current political climate in France.
