Lessons in Realism: Episode of the Sea | Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan

Op de Filmacademie worden regelmatig lezingen gegeven op de woensdagavond.  Op woensdag 10 december komen Lonnie van Brummelen en Siebren de Haan hun nieuwste film Episode of the Sea vertonen en bespreken. De documentaire ging in première op het Toronto Film Festival en is ook geselecteerd voor IDFA 2014.



“In this lecture, Lonnie van Brummelen and Siebren de Haan will show and discuss their latest work, ‘Episode of the Sea’. In this film, premiered at the Toronto festival and screened at IDFA, Van Brummelen and De Haan profile the small, unique town of Urk that was once an island in the Zuiderzee in Holland, while simultaneously investigating the parallels between the practices of fishing and of filmmaking. The result has been described as a “playful documentary”, a “rich viewing experience”, a “flat-out masterpiece”.

Lonnie van Brummelen and Siebren de Haan work together since 2002, producing film installations, writing, sculpture and collages that explore cultural and geopolitical landscapes such as Europe’s borders (Grossraum, 2005), sites of resource production and global trade (Monument of Sugar – how to use artistic means to elude trade barriers, 2007; Episode of the Sea, 2014), and the (non) sites of cultural heritage (Monument to Another Man’s Fatherland, 2008, View from the Acropolis, 2012 and subi dura a rudibus, 2010). Most of their projects involve extensive research and long term collaborations. As part of their artistic practice, they express formal and informal research trajectories and the contingency of fieldwork in textual supplements. They do their own camera work, sound recording, production, montage, sculpting, and graphical design.”
