1. Scorsese ha detto di lui che era un antropologo che si esprimeva con la voce di un poeta. A noi invece ha detto che dell’antropologia non gli importava proprio niente, e tutto quel che cercava era la poesia, “che è come il sale, conserva le cose”. In questa videointervista, realizzata da ZaLab a Barcellona nel 2008*, Vittorio De Seta, padre del documentario italiano, ripercorre gli elementi fondamentali della sua personalissima cinematografia, dal suono, al montaggio, al rapporto con i personaggi e i loro ambienti. Un appello alla resistenza per un mestiere difficile e necessario, un richiamo alla sfida del reale, che può tornare a imporsi anche quando sembra ormai troppo tardi.

She is a choreographer, dancer, vocalist and educator whose original works have infused the venerable Cambodian classical form with new ideas and energy.
