Michael Nyman: Film Works

We knew about Michael Nyman’s love affair with film, through his collaborations with Peter Greenaway (The Draughtsman’s Contract; The Cook, the Thief, his Wife and her Lover), Michael Winterbottom (Wonderland, Tristram Shandy: a Cock and Bull Story) and Jane Champion (The Piano). Less well known is his role as filmmaker, as a man glued to his camera. He reveals this side to us today in this encounter, in which we see fragments of Cine Opera and Nyman with a Movie Camera, his two documentaries to date. The first takes its name from a run-down cinema in Mexico City, it’s a collection of short pieces that takes the form of a visual diary, alternating between spontaneity and the footnote at the base of the page, fruit of his gallivanting around half way around the world, and all set to music by the man himself. Experimentation and the “a day in the life of” articulate the second, a recreation of the classic by Dziga Vértov, inventor of cine-eye and Nyman’s director fetish. An opportunity to enter the world of this prolific composer and pianist, musicologist and orchestra director, through his own words and his own eyes. 

And encounter with MICHAEL NYMAN and projections of CINE OPERA and NYMAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA. Chaired by: MANUEL HUERGA.
