Something in the Way

Michel Auder

Michel Auder was born in France in 1944, but he has been living and working in New york since the late 1960s. For more than 40 years, since he bought his first portable video camera in 1969, Auder has been recording, reviewing and releasing electronic footage. The terms chronicle, portrait and voyage, which he himself uses, capture important aspects of the work. Auder has the abilities of a compassionate and emotionally present filmmaker, with a keen eye for the beauty of a self-conscious subject in front of a camera. For LIAF Auder will show a film, shot on location in Lofoten and New York this year, at Kolflaathbrygga.
