Alain Tanner

Back
A leading figure in European cinema – the author of a serenely subversive, independent and free oeuvre, where the political and the poetic are indissociable. From his film-speeches on the (dis)illusions of May 68 (such as Jonah who will be 25 in the year 2000, written with John Berger) to the film-poems that assimilate them (such as In the White City, shot in Lisbon, a city- turned-character that will return in Requiem, “a sort of ode to Lisbon and the lisboetas”), Tanner’s film work draws a lucid map of a space-time that draws its audience in.
