CCC Auteurs Watchlist : Roy ANDERSSON

Unique Swedish filmmaker, Roy ANDERSSON, is 78 this year and made his last (according to him) film in 2019 : About Endlessness . A 2020 documentary, Being a Human Person  (directed by Fred Scott) follows its making of, where the auteur struggles with alcoholism. Andersson only made 6 feature films within 50 years, and many TV commercials ( compiled in this 34min long YouTube video ). Let's hope there will be a 7th Roy Andersson film and many more. * * * Some videos where he's discussing his art : Roy Andersson interviewed about A Pigeon Sat On A Branch Reflecting On Existence (27 march 2021) 22'31" Q&A with Roy Andersson (26 sept 2020) 1h06' Roy Andersson & Ruben Östlund (30 june 2011) 7'27" Roy Andersson on his career (11 sept 2009) 6' Roy Andersson's official website : Studio 24

CCC Auteurs Watchlist : Benedek FLIEGAUF

 5 years since Benedek FLIEGAUF's last film, Lily Lane ( Liliom ösvény ), at the 2016 Berlinale... And Lily Lane came out 4 years after Just The Wind ( Czak a szél ), which premiered at the 2012 Berlinale. But Fliegauf is practically a one-man band, who does writting, directing, set design, music, sound design, casting...  He's back this year with a new film, Forest - I See You Everywhere ( Rengeteg - Mindenhol latlak ), premiereing in competition at the 2021 Berlinale ! starring Mihaly Vig and his own son Janos Fliegauf.

In Diaz’s case, there is an evident disconnection between the discourse of slow cinema and the concerns that animate his films. The historical, social and political character of the Philippines is his primary subject—‘the struggle is there. I cannot turn my back on it’—and his achievement is
