Conversation at the Lodge: Jean Perret, Visions du Reel Nyon

Jean Perret, a member of this year’s World Documentary Competition jury, will speak about his festival in Nyon, Visions du Réel, and its focus on creative cinema dealing with real life stories. Perret explains, “From the video journal to the full-scale investigation, from experimental films to classical narratives, these documentary films are just like workshops open to the world.” The presentation will include clips and a discussion about “the gesture,” “the take,” “the depth,” and “the narrative” as the basic moments of documentary work.

Note: no ticket is required for this event.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
