Color: Colour
Language: English

Master of the interview, subtle observer and creator of multifaceted documentaries Marcel Ophuls (1927) is the son of director Max Ophuls. The German-born Frenchman with US citizenship shot most of his films on commission for television. His documentaries weave together a variety of personal reminiscences on the wartime events of the 20th century. His work is characterised by a sense for the moment and by the sophisticated combination of materials that engage the viewer both morally and intellectually. Ophuls sees documentary film as a narrowly defined genre; during his lecture he will focus on the question of what should be included in a film and what should be left on the cutting room floor.
