Luke Fowler Reino Unido

In the origin of the projects directed by Luke Fowler (Glasgow, 1978) there is usually a question, a profound interest in knowing more. They can either be an exploration into the life or work of psychologist R. D. Laing (All Divided Selves), or about a man who withdraws into a life in the wilderness disappointed by humanity ( Bogman Palmjaguar), or the potential of what could have happened (his latest film Depositions). And his interrogative nature is transmitted to the final result: his films work with history in order to transform it into something else –always restless, his style is hard to determine. A winner of the Derek Jarman award in 2008 and a finalist for the prestigious Turner award in 2012, Fowler blurs the boundaries of archive footage and film, and at the same time expands the limits of cinema by screening his films in museums, halls, and galleries.
Featuring an experimental nature and an essentially cinematographic documentary form, his work (almost entirely presented in this edition of Bafici) is a unique opportunity to approach one of the most attractive European artists today.
