Henri Storck
price 21 €

Henri Storck (Ostend 1907 - Brussels 1999) lived through the whole history of cinema, passing from silent to sound, and from experimental to commercial films. He is recognised as a pioneer of Belgian cinema and a key figure in documentary. In 1944, he starts making documentaries on art. He devotes two films to Paul Delvaux. Together with art critic Paul Haesaerts he makes Rubens, a long exploration - at times didactic, at times lyric - of the world of the great Baroque painter. Its inventiveness was awarded by the first prize for documentary at the Venice film festival in 1949. The Open Window plunges the spectator into the most famous landscapes of Belgian, French, English and Dutch artists. An Artists Reunion dates from 1945, and in 1953 he portrays Flemish writer, intellectual and theatre educationist Herman Teirlinck.
