Viennale t o pay tribute to Bob Dylan

user
Masked and Anonymous – Bob Dylan and the Cinema Curated by Cyril Neyrat Bob Dylan and the cinema: to all the world, this means two central images from the singer’s mythology. First of all, the rising young star filmed by D.A. Pennebaker in Dont Look Back (1967). And then, in Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (1973), the taciturn cowboy flaunting his mystery in a moribund Wild West. But Dylan’s relationship with the cinema goes far beyond these two iconic images. As I’m Not There, Todd Haynes...

20th Festival of Nordic Cinema in Rouen

user
The 20th edition of this specialized festival in north-western France (March 21-- April 01, 2007) was a bit of a disappointment this year in terms of competition films and visiting personalities, at least compared to the four previous times I have made it my business to be here.

In terms of importance, however, while it is not considered to be quite in the same class as the North-American majors, Sundance, Telluride, Chicago, New York, Toronto and Montreal, it can nevertheless ce...

A Conversation With Danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth

Jorgen Leth interview by Wendy Dent Festival dei Popoli, Florence 7 December 2005WD: This festival was very unique in that it expanded my definitions of what documentary is and this is what stunned me about your films, is they were staged and it really broadened my idea of what documentary is but made me wonder where is the line, where is the definition?
