From 29 April to 1 May, Online Masterclasses with Claire Denis, Petra Costa & Peter Mettler at Visions du Réel


The guests of the 51st Edition will each give an Online Masterclass, sharing their practices in a dialogue with the audience. The Masterclasses will be available for free on the Festival's website and Facebook page. > Programme of the Masterclasses

Filmmaker Claire Denis, Maître du Réel of this edition, will give an Online Masterclass on Wednesday 29 April at 15:00. Moderated by Lionel Baier (ECAL) and Émilie Bujès (Visions du Réel). A chance for the public to (re)discover the work of this remarkable director.

The Masterclass will be given in French, and streamed live on the Festival's website and Facebook page.

In association with ECAL and Cinémathèque suisse.

Beyond the documentaries that she has directed, Claire Denis, in her fictional or even her science-fiction works, maintains in a personal and delicate manner, a recurring relationship to “the real”. By allowing the necessary space to account for the voids and the hollows, in order to render what the acting or the staging are unable to express in the tempo of the editing, or in the exploration of bodies and desire, her fiction swells with the substance of reality. Using a tangible fact as a starting point, Claire Denis weaves cinematographic objects that are both modern and adventurous, joyously hesitating between formal austerity and euphoric sensuality.

Some titles of her filmography are available online until 13 June.

In association with Tënk.

As part of the Ateliers, Visions du Réel is welcoming Brazilian filmmaker Petra Costa online on Thursday 30 April at 15:00. This Masterclass will be hosted by Delphine Jeanneret (HEAD-Genève) and Giona Nazzaro (Visions du Réel).

The Masterclass will be given in English, and streamed live on the Festival's website and Facebook page.

In association with HEAD-Genève.

Nominated at this year's Oscar ceremony in the Best Documentary Feature category for The Edge of Democracy, Petra Costa will present her work as a director and producer during the first retrospective dedicated to her work. The Brazilian filmmaker draws from her personal experience inspiration to evoke the divisions and contradictions of a country faced with tumultuous events.

The films of the retrospective are available online until 2 May.

In association with Doc Alliance.

Second guest of the Ateliers, director Peter Mettler will give a Masterclass on Friday 1 May at 15:00. This event will be moderated by Jean Perret (critic, essayist and lecturer) and Emmanuel Chicon (Visions du Réel).

The Masterclass will be given in English, and streamed live on the Festival's website and Facebook page.

Renowned director and cinematographer, Peter Mettler profoundly influenced documentary writing in the 2000s. His hybrid work explores the limits of human perception without any predetermined script and according to an associative process that wanders about along the borders of essay, documentary and fiction. 

The films of the retrospective are available online until 2 May.

In association with Doc Alliance.

Friday 1 May, 22:00

Peter Mettler will propose a live visual mix with to the audio recordings of YoshtoYoshto, previously performed together live on stage with anthropologist Jeremy Narby (The Cosmic Serpent) and musician Franz Treichler (The Young Gods). To compose this "live divination", the three artists have drawn their inspiration from the Amazonian Yaminuaha people’s metaphorical language, creating an improvisation that describes our world, its ambiguities and its interactions.

Before that on-line performance, Peter Mettler will have a short discussion with Jean Perret and Emmanuel Chicon and will demonstrate MIXXA, the software used for this, created with TouchDesigner.
