Filmmakers' Choice on April 14

DEUTSCHLAND IM HERBST, 1978

"A porn film at home on tape is a pretext for inviting a girl, and it avoids the minimal work of talking to her about love," the famous filmmaker will say at the end of the evening in an interview. Eight favorite films and perhaps a half. From Chantal Akerman to Maya Deren to Jean-Luc Godard to Jean-Marie Staub, from a slap to emergency decrees and back to nature. Chosen by Stefan Zeyen and accompanied by the analytical Daniel Miller who states that "the coming of cinema was expected on earth."
