Marc Isaacs: The Filmmaker's House

Skrevet den 03-10-2021 13:30:09 af Tue Steen Müller

"The Filmmaker’s House" is masterly made film by one of the most important documentary authors in Great Britain, created in facing a space that we usually think of as a set of walls and things.

What makes the house we live in? Marc Isaacs presents his own house primarily as a place where film ideas and films live. And one of these films he makes in front of us and introduces us to unusual people who come from different parts of the city and the world, and invade at different times, announced and unannounced, creating together events in which they have different roles. All of these events unfold gradually - from simple everyday situations to unexpected ones, and each one brings some surprising blend or dramatic twist. Everyday life before us alternately becomes an amazing film and a surreal show. How brilliantly documented the unpredictability of life! Marc Isaacs's films are astonishing precisely when the author allows charismatic people to seemingly create their own stories in front of his camera which also participates in the events. Behind that illusion, the author carefully directs and guides the flow of the film with discreet directions, provoking and encouraging his heroes. They become a part of his house and his everyday life, he and his camera become an oneiric part of their existences.

This film is a manifesto of the power of documentary film to create captivating cinematic stories from simple scenes of reality.
