PREMIERES IN ROMANIA AT OWR 2013
PRESENT IN BUCHAREST FOR OWR 2013
Jon Bang Carlsen, born in 1950, graduated from the Danish Film School. Virtually unknown in Romania, Jon Bang Carlsen is a 62 year old director who - although he has a living legend status in his own country - continues to search and to innovate just like a young director at his debut. He started his career in the 1970s with actor-oriented films, only to migrate later towards that certain no man's land between documentary and fiction. For 8 years he lived in South Africa, he filmed in Ireland and the United States, and now he lives on a remote farm in Denmark. He is interested in the creation process and the relation to the subjects rather than in the final product, which explains why his films are so hard to classify. Films: First I Wanted to Find the Truth (1987), How to Invent Reality (1996), It’s Now or Never (1996), Addicted to Solitude (1999), Purity Beats Everything (2007), Just the Right Amount of Violence (2013).
