Quentin Tarantino was born in 1963 in Knoxville, Tennesse. An avid film fan, his time spent working in a video rental store filtered directly into the referential nature of films such as 'Reservoir Dogs' (1992), 'Pulp Fiction' (1994) and 'Jackie Brown' (1997). He is known for nonlinear storylines, neo-noir characters, stylised violence and use of popular music to soundtrack his films.
Béla Tarr was born in Pécs, Hungary in 1955. He graduated from the Hungarian Academy of Theatre and Film in Budapest in 1981. He has been a member of the European Film Academy since 1996 and is one of the world's most original and acclaimed contemporary filmmakers. In a body of work concerned with explorations of the human condition, he has created an uncompromising, innovative and utterly engrossing cinematic world.
Born in Buenos Aires, acclaimed Argentine filmmaker Pablo Trapero initially attracted acclaim with his riveting, Neorealist-inspired feature debut 'Crane World' (1999). His emergence coincided with the rise of the ‘Argentinian New Wave’ alongside Lucretia Martel ('The Holy Girl', 'The Headless Woman') and Lisandro Alonso ('Liverpool', 'Jauja'). His status as a filmmaker of world-renowned cinema was cemented with ‘Lion’s Den’ (2008), which was nominated for a Palme d’Or. He followed it with ’Carancho’ (2010) and ‘White Elephant’ (2012), ambitious projects that balance the attraction of genre – most notably the thriller – with powerful social criticism. ‘The Clan’, which won the Silver Lion for Best Director at Venice 2015, went onto break Box Office records on its opening weekend in Argentina.
Born in 1956 in Copenhagen, Denmark, Lars von Trier is considered to be the most provocative and visually unique Danish directors since the great Carl Theodor Dreyer. Sexually explicit imagery, genre and tonal contrasts, and handheld camerawork are his wildly unpredictable trademarks. His films, including 'The Idiots' (1998), 'Dancer in the Dark' (2000), and 'Antichrist' (2009) are not for the faint-hearted.
