The Fly on the Wall or in the Soup; about Direct Cinema, Cinema Verite and everything in between
Monday 6.6 at 20:00
In this lecture, Landesman will explain the differences between the two documentary methods; Direct Cinema and Cinema Verite. While Direct Cinema tries to avoid any kind of interaction or manipulation on the subject, Cinema Verite takes a different approach, getting involved in the project in order to expose the reality and capture it. Both methods emerged during the 60’s, and were direct results of the 16 mm cameras technology. What is the part of technology in the evolution of documentary film making of today?
Ohad Landesman is finishing his PHD at the NYU, he is a teacher at TAU Film department, and has published several articles in magazines such as Film Comment, IndieWire, amongst other. Landesman is currently the film critic of Calcalist.
Video Art as Poetry
Monday 13.6 at 20:00
“Video art is to film as poetry is to literature. One can define my works as visual poetry. In the last few years my works focus almost entirely on nature, views, structures and animals – almost no humans. I want to give the viewer not only an experience of structure and ideas but also a mystic and surrealist experience. My works also deal with the struggle between order and chaos.” Dana Levy
