Filmspotting: Exploring the Deutsche Kinemathek's Film Archive

ICH SEHE WAS, WAS DU NICHT SIEHST, 1993

To coincide with the exhibition on cinematographer Robby Müller, this month’s edition of Filmspotting is dedicated to the significant work carried out by camerapeople in creating both films and styles. In ICH SEHE WAS, WAS DU NICHT SIEHST (Vladimir Majdandzik, Luke McBain, Germany 1993), the two filmmakers interview some of the most famous cinematographers about their work. Alongside Michael Ballhaus, Woody Allen's preferred cinematographer Carlo Di Palma, and the multi-Oscar nominated Haskell Wexler, Robby Müller also gets to have his say, who made his name primarily with his work for Wim Wenders and Jim Jarmusch. Do camerapeople see the world differently or does the world become different when they look at it? How does one capture thoughts and feelings in images? Questions which these renowned camerapeople approach and answer differently. (ah) (31.7.)
