Worthwhile read: ‘Back to Africa: An interview with Claire Denis’

This interview with Claire Denis, conducted by Daniel Kasman of The Auteurs, is very interesting even if one hasn’t yet seen Denis’s latest feature, White Material. Denis is completely unafraid of explaining the how’s and why’s of her work when discoursing with critics, something that is by no means an artist’s obligation yet is admirable nevertheless. Denis’s films are often cryptic to the point that familiarity with them seems all but impossible, though Denis has never struck me as being someone who deliberately obfuscates her work; she’s just got an uncanny sensibility, I guess. Anyway, White Material sounds like another must-see from one of the best filmmakers working today.
