Jon Bang Carlsen, Denmark, 1996

31 min.DK/Documentary

After 25 years as a director Jon Bang Carlsen has made this cinematic essay on his method which he calls himself directed documentarism. The background of the film is the priduction of IT'S NOW OR NEVER , the story of an Irish batchelor's search for love. In the narration of the film Jon Bang Carlsen says, "I can only see the world by illustrating it through myself.
