Living

Director: 

Zwartjes' masterpiece and his own favourite film. “Living has an uneasy, indefinable atmosphere. The camera’s strange swaying and the music that keeps going on and on…”Living demonstrates Zwartjes’ cinematographic mastery. He is the film’s main character and also does the camera work, pointing it at himself with his hand held outstretched. Zwartjes: “I was as strong as a bear back then.” The film is part of the ‘Home sweet home’ series, in which Zwartjes explored the house in The Hague he had just moved into. His wife and muse Trix plays the other role. The two characters move restlessly through the house. The film was made using an extremely wide angled lens (a 5.7), which makes the images very strange.
