Gustav Deutsch: Home Movie Now

director: Gustav Deutsch
original title: Gustav Deutsch: Domácí video dnes
running time: 120 min.

synopsis

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 master class 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.

Masterclass: Jacopo Quadri
Italian film editor Jacopo Quadri worked with documentary filmmaker Gianfranco Rosi on the successful Fire at Sea, which won the Golden Bear for Best Film at this year’s Berlinale. As part of his editing master class, he will screen his own film The Summer School (2014). According to Quadri, film editing “is something liquid and physical. It looks like a river that cuts through unknown lands. The spectator is like a swimmer or a sailor. Each element is linked to the other by contrast or similarity as if the film were a journey.”

Masterclass Claire Atherton: Editing. A Composition
We can see reflected in the work of French editor Claire Atherton, who worked closely with Chantal Akerman, the belief that, in addition to image and sound, time is a narrative element and an essential aspect of film media. According to her, editing gives a film its shape - making it visible, embodying it - through an intuitive thought process. In this masterclass, she shares her rich experiences with viewers, presents her own concept of editing, and answers the basic questions: What role does editing play in the creation of films? How does editing unite the material and the director’s vision?

The Road Movie
Videos from Russian roads have become an internet phenomenon. Dash cams record their surroundings without any embellishment. Out of fifty such videos, Dima Kalashnikov has made something much more than just another YouTube compilation. Thanks to music and sophisticated editing, he successfully created a multi-layered portrait of contemporary Russia. “There is as much humor as tragedy witnessed here. The film really depicts the essence of Russian life and the Russian attitude to life. It is a very Russian film.” D. Kalashnikov

Horizon
This portrait of the influential Icelandic landscape painter Georg Gudni (1961–2011) presents his artistic development, sources of inspiration, and thoughts about painting. It also introduces questions about the relationships between the artist, the work, reality, and the viewer. Paintings are interwoven with images of the landscape and archival shots, in which Guðni explains his philosophy of creativity, interspersed with interviews with art historians and Guðni’s former colleagues."Georg Gudni’s main goal was capturing the Icelandic nature. Horizon is a personal discovery of the mindset of contemporary landscape painter, whom we knew personally. For us too – this is a very personal journey."

Masterclass Barbora Chalupová, Vít Klusák: Caught in the Net
Vít Klusák and Barbora Chalupová shot an unprecedented documentary never before seen in a Czech context. The creators focused on child abuse on the internet and sexual predators seeking their prey deep within the bowels of social networks. The aim of the psycho-social experiment was to hunt down and catch these predators and find out their motives. In the masterclass, the filmmakers will guide us through the material that didn't make it into the final cut of the film, but that still remains an important topic for discussion. We will talk about the cut, dramaturgy, and grasping the substance of the film so that the resulting documentary is coherent in all respects and meets high ethical demands.
