Directed by Noëlle Deschamps
This documentary is a worldwide “poetic journey” through the imagination of several film writers and directors, from all over the world, such as Frank Pierson, Jacques Audiard, Pan Nalin, James Gray, Guillermo Arriaga, Emir Kusturica, Maïwenn, Michel Gondry… By entering their world we will discover what they all have in common through the images of their films, the interviews about their inspiration, the highly specific way in which they work, their subjects, their characters and their directing styles. Written by D. Marzotto

MASTER CLASS: VISUAL STORYTELLING: THE EYE OF THE CINEMATOGRAPHERCinematography is the art of telling stories through meaningful images. It is a voyage through Light. It is the subtext of emotion, attitude and point-of-view in a film. It is a means by which the director’s vision of the script is implemented from moment-to-moment through the use of light, composition, color and the blocking of the actors within a landscape, location or interior set. Using clips from his body of work and that of the masters, cinematographer Frederic Goodich ASC will discuss how great cinematography -- whether shot on film or digital -- is not about ‘capturing’, but rather about ‘creating and constructing’ images. Cinematographers don’t just ‘take’ pictures they ‘make pictures’.
