We can see reflected in the work of French editor Claire Atherton, who worked closely with Chantal Akerman, the belief that, in addition to image and sound, time is a narrative element and an essential aspect of film media. According to her, editing gives a film its shape - making it visible, embodying it - through an intuitive thought process. In this masterclass, she shares her rich experiences with viewers, presents her own concept of editing, and answers the basic questions: What role does editing play in the creation of films? How does editing unite the material and the director’s vision? (Ji.hlava IDFF)
