The retrospective of Jesper Just (Denmark)
This danish videoartist doesn't attempt to demonstrate the seriousness of his art by pseudodocumentary or "non-professional" filming.
There is no trash, on the contrary, his films please the eye with the visual effects luxury, complex light work and considered music; the professional actors, sound directors, camera men, light designers are brought into play - everything associated with the expensive full-length production is present here. Nevertheless, the artist can't fool the viewers and critics with his sweet visual "trompe-d'oeils" - they compare atmospheric works by Jesper Just with the movies of Visconti, Fassbinder, Gus van Sant, and come to look at them to the Brooklyn museum or Tate Gallery.
Jesper Just wors screening curator - Yulia Tikhonova.
