Theodor Christensen 100 År

The Danish Cinemateket celebrates the founder of Danish documentary Theodor Christensen from May 1st with an exhibition and a retrospective. In Danish:

Ja, ham ville jeg gerne have mødt og røget en cigar med… Men han døde allerede i 1967, hvor min dokumentariske interesse ikke rigtigt havde taget fat. Men jeg har set hans film, læst hans inspirerende artikler og hørt om ham fra Jørgen og Ole Roos og mange andre danske instruktører. For ikke at tale om østtyske og cubanske filmfolk, som har nikket anerkendende og sagt ”Christensen was an inspiring authority” med henvisning til hans virke i Cuba i 1960’erne.

Theodor ville have fyldt 100 den 6. April. Cinemateket inviterer til film og indledning… ”filmforsker Lars-Martin Sørensen introducerer sammen med kunstner og sociolog Søren Kai Christensen – Theodor Christensens søn og der vises 2 film: ”C – et Hjørne af Sjælland” af Theodor Christensen og Karl Roos og ”De 100 dage” af Theodor Christensen.
