Joe Swanberg

“I realized that because I'd been producing so much work, I hadn't changed enough as a person between projects. At that point I couldn't make another movie even if I'd wanted to, because I hadn't had a life for so long.”

    ALL THE LIGHT IN THE SKY

    Joe Swanberg United States, 2012

    Joe Swanberg has quietly made one of the most prolific oeuvres of this young century and All the Light in the Sky is another modest yet affecting entry. Shot with minimal means, the naturalism achieved here is remarkable, and Jane Adams’s authentic turn gives the film a deeply resonant core.

    ART HISTORY

    Joe Swanberg United States, 2011

    Mumblecore director Joe Swanberg’s Art History is a filmic act of self-reflection, starring Josephine Decker! The enclosed space and suffocating atmosphere of a film shoot allows Swanberg to comment on the troubling and affecting nature of acting in film, and to react against his detractors.

    SILVER BULLETS

    Joe Swanberg United States, 2011

    American mumblecore director Joe Swanberg here takes a self-reflexive look at indie movie-making. Similar issues from The Zone are cleverly twisted during the making of a horror film, where jealousy is spawned between actors, directors, and lovers.

    UNCLE KENT 2

    Todd Rohal United States, 2015

    We know what you’re thinking, “but I haven’t seen the first Uncle Kent” (or perhaps “what is Uncle Kent?”), but don’t fret—this is an entirely standalone film. A happily egregious sequel to end all sequels, Todd Rohal’s film is a welcome cocktail of sincere absurdity and filmmaking as playfulness.

    THE ZONE

    Joe Swanberg United States, 2011

    A mysterious visitor spends the night at an apartment belonging to a young engaged couple and their friend. Over the course of the night and the following day he sleeps with all three roommates and then disappears, leading to conversations about God, life and filmmaking.
