Nanouk Leopold, Joanna Hogg moderated by Jesse Cumming
Remote islands, an Italian villa, an old farmstead behind a dike â€“ European auteurs Joanna Hogg and Nanouk Leopold are lovers of cinematic space. The saturation of houses and neighbouring territories with subjectivity is a quality common to these craftswomen and artists. This event draws out the multiple dimensions of their films, as they take each other and the audience on a cinematic expedition through the habitats created for the screen. Thanks to sequences from their work, Joanna and Nanouk also exchange on topics such as the technicalities of shooting â€śon locationâ€ť and the tender or conflicted relationships their characters develop with spaces, which, more often than not, are more than mere backdrops.
Nanouk Leopold is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Rotterdam and of the Dutch Film and Television Academy. Her feature credits include WOLFSBERGEN (Berlinale Forum 2007), BROWNIAN MOVEMENT (Berlinale Forum 2011), ITâ€™S ALL SO QUIET (opening film at Berlinale Panorama Special 2013) and COBAIN (Berlinale Generation 2018). A member of the Society of the Arts of the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences, she recently directed her first play and makes video installations with visual artist Daan Emmen.
The screenwriter and director Joana Hogg made her feature film debut in 2008 with UNRELATED. Starring Tom Hiddleston, the film won the FIPRESCI Prize and the Guardian First Film award. She followed it with ARCHIPELAGO and EXHIBITION. The British Film Institute has identified her as â€śone of the foremost directors working in Britain todayâ€ť.
