Gustav Deutsch: Home Movie Now

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.

Game
A sophisticated game of cat and mouse in which the constantly moving camera is the hunter and the young woman wandering the streets of Ljubljana to the sounds of jazz music is the prey. The film spent fifty years hidden under the bed of one of the filmmakers and was first screened at a meeting of Slovenian amateur filmmakers.„All my films have certain message and only important thing for me is and was to catch a spirit of time.“ K. Godina

The Yes Men Are Revolting
This documentary comedy proves that even environmental activism can be carried out with insight and humor. A duo of seasoned agitators infiltrate conferences and, using hoaxes, fake press releases and various declarations, draw attention to themselves so that they can point out the callousness and arrogance of large corporations and government organizations.“All of these actions could’ve been YouTube videos and that’s the end of it, but we wanted to tell a more complex story about what it also means to be an activist over time.” (Andy Bichlbaum)

Masterclass Marcel Ophuls: Joys and Sorrows of Documentary Filmmaking
Master of the interview, subtle observer and creator of multifaceted documentaries Marcel Ophuls (1927) is the son of director Max Ophuls. The German-born Frenchman with US citizenship shot most of his films on commission for television. His documentaries weave together a variety of personal reminiscences on the wartime events of the 20th century. His work is characterised by a sense for the moment and by the sophisticated combination of materials that engage the viewer both morally and intellectually. Ophuls sees documentary film as a narrowly defined genre; during his lecture he will focus on the question of what should be included in a film and what should be left on the cutting room floor.

Masterclass Karel Vachek: How Vachek films Communism
Professor Karel Vachek (1940), the doyen of Czech documentary film and the last active member of the New Wave, is filming his latest cinematic novel, which has the working title Communism. In his film, he argues that revolutions are always followed by the restoration of the old order, and that power and wealth continue to be held by just a select few. Vachek guides the viewer through a collage of his personal memories, framed by scenes from his films, costume designs and news archives. During his lecture, he will show a roughly one-hour excerpt of recently edited scenes and will engage in audience discussion. And perhaps he will reveal whether he has managed to convince actress Jiřina Bohdalová to participate in his project.

Helmut Berger, Actor
Helmut Berger, a star in the European acting world, gave brilliant performances in the films made by the Italian director Luchino Visconti. This documentary portrait takes a look at the life of this elderly eccentric man, who lives in a flat overflowing with trinkets from the past. The director used interviews to try and discover who Helmut is – and thanks to him, Helmut could act again.„This film is also about the impossibility of really getting to know somebody, the question of what methods you can use to move towards an individualʼs core. Iʼm not sure that interviews are the best method.“ A. Horvath

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."
