Jørgen Leth - Artist Talk
In addition to GL Strand's major retrospective exhibition 'My Name is Jørgen Leth', PIX will pay homage to Jørgen Leth's long lasting productivity and celebrate his 75th birthday by showing his three fiction films 'Traberg', 'Haiti Express' and 'A Midsummer's Play' in Husets Biograf, free of charge. The exhibition for the first time shows Jørgen Leth's varied work in a larger presentation. At the same time, it focuses on both the artist and the man Jørgen Leth - two identities that seem inseperable. As a film director, poet and journalist, Leth has spent a lifetime of dynamic creativity and an open mind breaking down the boundary between life and art, media and people. On Saturday 28 April at 14.00 hrs the audience will have the chance to meet Jørgen Leth in a discussion with Steve Gravestock from Toronto International Film Festival, which will focus on Leth as an international filmmaker. The interview will be conducted in English!
