director: Claire Atherton
original title: Masterclass Claire Atherton: Lekce střihu
country: Czech Republic
running time: 140 min.
synopsisWe 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?
