You will have a unique opportunity to sample the brilliance and diversity of Dutch filmmaker George Sluizer.  He began as a documentarian, making films all over the world, chronicling the lives of natives in the Amazonian jungle, Portuguese fishermen risking their lives off the coast of Newfoundland, Palestinians surviving the occupation of their land.  And he went on to make a wide range of feature films, with Tony Perkins, Bibi Andersson, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Geraldine Chaplin, Kieffer Sutherland, shot in Brazil, Europe, Texas, Hollywood.  He made one of the most frightening films ever made, THE VANISHING, the only adaptation of the work of Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago, THE STONERAFT, and the last film of River Phoenix, DARK BLOOD.  We will have his collaborators participate in the course, talking about the way he worked.
