MASTERCLASS with Emilie Lesclaux & Kleber Mendonça Filho
Kleber Mendonça Filho and Emilie Lesclaux will be our guests at Stockfish this year in relation to a retrospect in their honor. Their films Bacarau, which was previously screened at Stockfish in 2020, Neighbouring Sounds and Aquarius will be included in the retrospect and have received dozens of international awards and accolades.
Mendonça and Lesclaux are among the most respected filmmakers in Latin America. Their films have achieved great international acclaim and received hundreds of accolades, including at Cannes Film Festival, where Mendonça has also served on juries. In this masterclass, they will discuss filmmaking at home and abroad, from the perspective of the filmmaker and the producer. Also from the angle of a critic since they have been unafraid to air their political views on the situation in their home country in their works, speeches and writings.
This event is part of the Industry Program in Selfoss, 25. – 27. mars 2022. Landsbankahúsið, Austurvegi 20, 800 Selfoss
