Ib Bondebjerg: Virkelighedsbilleder

For our non-Danish readers. This is an announcement of a screening with debate being set up by Danish Cinemateket to introduce the new book of Ib Bondebjerg, Danish documentary academic, about the modern Danish documentary. Bondebjerg talks to Jytte Rex and Anders Østergaard about their portraits of Danish writer Inger Christensen and Swedish jazz composer and pianist Jan Johansson. At Cinemateket on thursday the 29th. The films will be screened. This is the intro text, in Danish, from Jesper Andersen from Cinemateket:  I anledning af udgivelsen af Ib Bondebjergs bog ‘Virkelighedsbilleder. Den moderne danske dokumentarfilm’, inviterer Cinemateket til samtaler mellem Ib Bondebjerg og seks centrale danske dokumentarfilmsinstruktører om dokumentarismen som genre og om instruktørernes kunstneriske strategier, og vi viser seks klassiske portrætfilm.

I det første af tre arrangementer præsenterer vi ’Inger Christensen – cikaderne findes’ (1998) (Photo), instrueret af Jytte Rex og ‘Troldkarlen’ (1999) af Anders Østergaard. Jytte Rex hører til blandt vores poetisk-symbolske dokumentarister, og i hendes portrætter spiller kunstnerens sprog sammen med hendes eget dokumentariske sprog. Det gælder i høj grad for Inger Christensen – cikaderne findes (1998), hvor Rex blander tonen i Christensens lyriske univers med diskrete, men magiske billeder.

Anders Østergaards portrætter er styret af en mental og poetisk tilgang, et forsøg på at anskueliggøre et kunstnerisk univers. Det gør han prægnant i aftenens film ’Troldkarlen’ (1999), der trænger langt ind i Jan Johanssons musikalske univers, samtidig med at det bliver en poetisk blues og en hyldest til en afdød.
