"Johan van der Keuken:
The Complete Collection Vol. 1"
Johan van der Keuken
The groundbreaking films of award-winning documentary
filmmaker Johan van der Keuken stretch the boundaries of both documentary
and narrative fiction. Rejecting the traditional documentary format as too
restrictive, he uses fictional techniques to depict content drawn from real
life, resulting in a uniquely personal style that is at once daring and
engaging. Includes I Love $, Beauty, A Moment of Silence,
The Eye Above the Well, Lucebert: Time and Farewell, The
Unanswered Question, On Animal Locomotion, Face Value, and
The Mask. "Along with Errol Morris and Chris Marker, van der Keuken
is one of the true inheritors of the poetic documentary style of Dziga
Vertov" (San Francisco Bay Guardian). French, English, and Dutch with
French, English, and Dutch Subtitles. Spanish subtitles on disc 2 only.
