LisbonTalk – Cinema lesson: analysis of the film The Living World

To celebrate IndieLisboa’s 15th anniversary, film critic and programmer Boyd van Hoeij (The Hollywood Reporter, Luxembourg City Film Festival) will conduct an in-depth critical conversation with the audience about Eugène Green’s second feature film, premiered at the Director’s Fortnight of Cannes and winner of the first edition of the festival. A medieval dramatic comedy of contemporary settings shot in Super 16, this playful tale follows the family misfortune of an ogre who wants to eat his children and of his wife who relies on the aid of a knight. Boyd will moderate the event by analysing, with the audience, how Green has created meaning through the use of such elements as camerawork, sound, editing and dialogue.
