World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: CARL-THEODOR DREYER

Because of his insistence on artistic independence Danish filmmaker Carl-Theodor Dreyer (1889-1968) completed a mere fourteen features in a directorial career that began in 1919 and ended in 1964. Only five of these films came after 1928's "La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc", his late silent masterpiece, and it is on this small body of sound work, along with "Jeanne d’Arc," that his enormous critical reputation rests. Dreyer’s austere aesthetic and intense metaphysical questioning are often cited as important influences on the work of Ingmar Bergman, Robert Bresson, Andrei Tarkovsky, and Lars von Trier, to cite just a few.
