Part of Film in Focus, a series of projects and events that celebrate the medium of film, ‘The Craft of Film’ is a series of talks by some of Europe’s leading directors, editors, cinematographers, designers, and others. Each talk will be accompanied by a screening of the film under discussion, with particular focus on the speaker’s involvement in that film.
We’re most looking forward to the talk by Yorgos Mavropsaradis, editor of Dogtooth (2009, dir. Yorgos Lanthimos). Mavropsaradis also worked on Lanthimos’ excellent The Lobster, which was one of the best films of 2015, but Dogtooth is even better, and its editor will have doubtless have interesting things to say about such a stylistically singular movie.
We also recommend the talks by the production designer of
Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia (Jette
Lehmann), the lead actress of Graduation director
Cristian Mungiu’s 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2
Days (Anamaria Marinca), and the cinematographer for Béla Tarr’s The Turin Horse (Fred Kelemen).
