Main speaker: Guido van Driel, cartoonist and film maker
Guido van Driel studied history but pursued his talent for illustration and became a cartoonist and illustrator. “Better to be a late bloomer than a child genius” says Guido, who at the age of fifty wrote his first screenplay and debuted as a film maker. His feature-length film was based on his own graphic novel De wederopstanding van een klootzak (English: “The resurrection of a bastard”). The film was released this year and selected to open the International Film Festival Rotterdam where it was also nominated for the Hivos Tiger Award.
At Cinetoko #27 we welcome Guido van Driel to talk about his film and the process behind transforming his graphic novel into a film scenario.
Please note that this evening will be held in Dutch.
Support programme: Actors and Automobiles
As an introduction to the evening we have invited Elisa Mutsaers of Film Atelier Den Haag to share her passion for vintage film. For half an hour she will dive into the archives of film history and present us with forgotten film fragments. Elisa will look at the convenient partnership of the automobile and film: both were born at the end of the 19th century and became big in America. The marketing men soon realised that a combination of these rising stars – the actors and the automobiles – made a winning formula. This lecture presents the close relationship between automobiles and films in word and image.
