Living the Light – Robby Muller selected for Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival
Dutch documentary Living the Light - Robby Müller has been selected for the international competition of the prestigious Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival (YIDFF). Living the Light is one of the 15 films selected from 1428 submissions. The festival is being held biennially in Yamagata, Japan.
Living the Light - Robby Müller world premiered at the Venice International Film Festival last September, as part of the competition program VENICE CLASSICS - Documentary on Cinema. Since then, the film had a successful tour of various international film festivals.
For this lyrical film essay director and fellow DoP Claire Pijman was given full access by Müller to thousands of hours of his Hi8 video diaries, photographs and polaroids that he produced while working on some of the seventy films he shot throughout his career. The documentary interweaves these images with fragments from his oeuvre into a fluid and cinematic continuum. Together with producer/composer Carter Logan, Jim Jarmusch adds a musical voice to the film. The film is produced by Moondocs (a.o. Need for Meat, Janine, Shame/Fame).
The 16th edition of the Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival takes place from 10 - 17 October 2019.
