Masterclass Peter Kerekes - docuMENTAL films

Restart in cooperation with Zagreb Film Festival is organizing on Saturday 18th of November at 4 pm at F22 (Frankopanska 22) masterclass lecture by Peter Kerekes, a Slovakian director and producer famous for his award-winning hybrid documentaries. Based on the example of his two award-winning films, Cooking History and 66 Seasons, he will illustrate the key difference between a documentary and a docuMENTAL film. According to him, a docuMENTAL film is not what is going on in front of the camera, but what is going on in the mind of the director. In his presentation, Kerekes will reveal how to make a film with scenes that seem fictional while retaining the authenticity of the protagonists and a documentary feel. Topics discussed will also include casting, combining fiction and documentary making, screenwriting, and the process of creating a hybrid film in the editing room.

Entrance is free!
