THE GREENAWAY ALPHABET
DOC NYC, BAFICI, Thessaloniki Doc, Biografilm, Tirana
A playful profile of British director Peter Greenaway.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Acclaimed filmmaker Peter Greenaway – perhaps best known for THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE, AND HER LOVER – is a lover of patterns and sequences, a motif that recurs throughout his work. In this playful portrait by his wife, multimedia artist Saskia Boddeke, Greenaway engages in an autobiographical alphabetic word association led by his perceptive 16-year-old daughter, Pip. As the father and daughter run through their ABCs, illustrated by scenes from his lavish body of work, a deeply personal, and surprisingly revealing, portrait of Greenaway emerges.
