Part 1: The journey from theatre to film. (Lars Von Trier’s input)
Filmed: November 15th 2013
Jeremy Weller started as a painter at Goldsmiths College during the BritArt years alongside other contemporaries such as Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin. But he found painting lonely and the art world elitist so he moved on to theatre, using marginalised people instead of actors. He then moved to film in order to further explore and play with reality and fiction. His first film, LIMBOLAND (2010), won the Danish Film Academy Robert Award, and featured teenage immigrants living in Denmark.
The film takes place in a no-man's-land between fact and fiction, and features ordinary teenagers, immigrants living in Denmark where they are having a hard time settling down.
