Georges Schwizgebel: Le Roi des Aulnes (Erlkönig) (2015)

Louis Schwizgebel interprets Erlkönig, the film by his father at the ceremony of the festival d’Annecy 2017.

In the film a father rides through the dark forest with his son. The sick child thinks he sees the Erlking, who both charms and frightens him. Based on Goethe’s poem Erlkönig and the music of Schubert and Liszt.

je ne puis méditer qu’en marchant ; sitôt que je m’arrête, je ne pense plus, et ma tête ne va qu’avec mes pieds.

Georges Schwizgebel: Fugue (1998)

We are kicking off a deep dive into the amazing free-flying animation filmography of Georges Schwizgebel. Previously we have only featured Jeu (2006), but in the coming weeks you will get to enjoy several selected works right up DPV’s alley.

Fugue throws us into an ominous, lost-in-thought looping mindscape. The music is composed by Michèle Bokanowski.
