Naked Cinema: A Set Is a Safe Haven

Timothy Spall, Heidi Levitt
moderated by Peter Cowie


Instead of Sally Potter, her casting director Heidi Levitt will join Timothy Spall to discuss how to help actors show emotional intimacy on set. As viewers of films we experience along with our protagonists, sharing with them their birth, their first love, fighting and death. In these profound moments, the filmic world transports the viewer to a sometimes beautiful, sometimes shocking place of intimacy. In particular screenwriters, directors and actors must exercise great courage and self-reflection to convey this sensitivity. Director Sally Potter (The Party, Competition) is a master of translating the most inner self of a character into her stories and onto the screen through the close, yet never exploitative relationship she establishes with her performers. In conversation with British actor and frequent collaborator Timothy Spall, Potter reveals how to make the film set a place for sense and sensitivity.

Past Progressive: Living Archives of Revolution

Andres Veiel, João Moreira Salles
moderated by Dorothee Wenner


Reviewing material from the archives is telling not only about the moment of its production, but also for what it can reveal about the present and our contemporary lens of interpretation. Presenting films in the festival that revisit revolutionary artist Joseph Beuys and the Paris revolts of May 1968, Andres Veiel (Beuys, Competition) and João Moreiera Salles (In the Intense Now, Panorama) confront the changing natures of historical images. Who filmed this material, why and how? What sorts of images are born of fear, of rapture, of urgency, of joy? Salles and Veiel discuss what the archive can reveal of itself, even if the viewer does not consult its historical context.
