ELLEN VON UNWERTH & PETER LINDBERGH
Saturday December 10 22h00 - 23h30 /// €6
Having worked with everyone who’s anyone, both Ellen von Unwerth and Peter Lindbergh are two of fashion’s biggest photographers - and they also happen to be two gifted filmmakers. Ellen von Unwerth, who started her career as a model and has since - as a photographer - elevated ‘naughtiness’ to Art with her impressive portfolio, has made music videos for Duran Duran and Kenneth Bager but she is best known for her infinitely sexy fashion films - starring prominent women like Eva Herzigova, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Kirsten Dunst but also well-respected actors like Vincent Cassel (in the short film Diabolo Bionda; of which you can already watch a snippet on top of this page).
Peter Lindbergh, who is credited for the dawn of the supermodel and whose work is now on display at the Antwerp Photo Museum, has been equally productive and influential in the past 25 years. The German photographer changed the face of fashion (and US Vogue) with its strikingly natural portraits of Naomi, Cindy, Linda, Tatjana and Stephanie - with whom he also made the half hour movie The Models in 1993; way before the term ‘fashion film’ was even invented. Oh, and in case you’re wondering: The Models is very much part of this screening.
Please note that ticket holders are invited to have a (free) drink at our temporary FASH!ON/off Bar in Cinema Zuid from 21:20 onwards (so before the screening). TICKETS
