Peter Greenaway - MASTERCLASS

Trained as a painter for four years, and started making his own films in 1966, Peter Greenaway has continued to make cinema in a great variety of ways, which has also informed his curatorial work and the making of exhibitions and installations. He has made twelve feature films and some fifty short-films and documentaries, published books, written opera librettos, and collaborated with renowned composers. By each film he makes, from his first, the Draughtman’s Contract, to his latest, Rembrandt’s J’accuse, his reputation consolidates. At this special occasion, Peter Greenaway will talk about cinema language, but explain how it is wasted on cinema and why in all probability we have never seen any cinema but only 114 years of illustrated text. Greenaway will show many examples from his own works of the past three years.
