For the seventh time the Documentarist festival is running in Istanbul – until June 12 – under the leadership of, among others, director Emel Çelebi. There is a Turkish Panorama, a focus on Syria, a tribute to Johan van der Keuken, an international Panorama, a section called Memoriam, where Alain Resnais classic ”Nuit et Brouillard”, Malik Bendjelloul’s “Searching for Sugar Man”, Peter Liechti’s “The Sound of Insects” and Michael Glawogger’s “Working Man’s Death” will be on screen.
Tomorrow, if you happen to be in Istanbul, Pawel Lozinski will be visiting the festival to show and discuss the idea behind “Father and Son”. The festival presents the case study like this:
The documentary filmmakers Marcel and Pawel Lozinski are father and son. They went on a trip together in order to make a film and they ended up making two differently edited documentaries of the same journey. What has happened on roads and in the editing room? Why have they decided to make their own versions but not one common film? In the ‘case study’ about this unique experience, we’ll hear the son’s side of the story.
