First Time [The Time for All but Sunset (Violet)] + A Man and a Camera

Sunday, Mar 20, 2022 at 5:00 pm

Location: Bartos Screening Room


With director Nicolaas Schmidt in person

Dir. Nicolaas Schmidt. Germany. 2021, 50 mins. DCP. In what Schmidt describes as his “common sensations music movie,” a young man rides the Hamburg tram at magic hour while listening to dreamy pop and sipping Coca-Cola. Over the course of a single film-length shot, interior and exterior spaces commingle and a tantalizing romantic encounter unfolds. United States premiere

Followed by A Man and a Camera

Dir. Guido Hendrikx. Netherlands. 2021, 64 mins. In Dutch with English subtitles. DCP. Dutch instigator Guido Hendrikx’s conceit is simple: he knocks on strangers’ doors and then films them without saying a word. But the results are myriad and complicated. By playing the provocateur, or even, depending on your comfort level, the villain, the director fashions a subtly powerful and frequently hilarious mosaic of community and tolerance. New York premiere
