Jørgen Leth Returns

Jørgen Leth (born 1937), living legend of world documentary, writer and poet, studied literature and anthropology. In the 1960s, he became a leading personality of Danish poetic modernism and experimental film. In his films, Leth creates film images similarly to a painter. At the beginning, he directs both the characters and the camera; during shooting, he stops “painting” the scenes and becomes an observer of the depicted events.

Jørgen Leth is a leading figure in experimental documentary filmmaking. We offer a sequel by a rigorously selected retrospective of this Danish director known for example for The Impossible Hour and Life in Denmark.

Pelota - the film consists of several elegantly interlaced layers, with the manufacture of a pelota ball as the narrative framework

Life in Denmark - almost 100 Danes -including a cyclist, a minister of finances, a popular actress and 13 single women from province - try to convey a realistic impression of Denmark, different from the usual view as a little, exotic and strange country

The Impossible Hour described in the film as the noblest, most difficult record that can be set on a bicycle

Chinese Ping Pong - film footage in black and white and colour of some of the best table tennis players in the world
