Gustav Deutsch: Home Movie Now
Gustav Deutsch (1952) is one of Austria’s leading film directors. He’s not only a filmmaker, but he’s also an architect and photographer. On the occasion of the release of his latest film How We Live - Messages to the Family, he leads the audience through an examination of the term "home movie", subjecting it to thorough scrutiny. In this masterclass he presents analyses of his own as well as found footage on film material, guiding viewers through the entire development of the “home movie” from film to digital technology. Don’t expect dry theory - his lecture is built on visual and sensual gratification.
