Petra Lataster & Peter Lataster
Peter and Petra Lataster have shared a cinematic path for more than twenty years, and collaborated on dozens of titles that earned an array of Dutch and international awards. An unconditional curiosity for human existence guides a lot of their work, which expands the territory of the regular and mundane into profound universes full of philosophical discoveries. Another signature of their repertoire is that many of their films follow intimate, deeply personal situations, and often engage filmmakers’ own family circle.
At the intersection of these traits is Lataster's new film Journey Through Our World, which will have its world premiere as part of the International Competition. This Filmmaker Talk will also explore other films, including Jerome Jerome, Miss Kiet’s Children, Not Without You. Selected excerpts will be highlighted as a part of the interview.
