Lars von Trier
Born in DK.
Lars von Trier is a voice that contemporary culture really listens to, with ever-apprehensive enjoyment. What might he say and do next? His unpredictability is a crucial part of our enjoyment.
The first documentary von Trier made at film school was about diamonds, and the fascination with these stones has stayed with him ever since. A few years ago, he launched the idea to ‘execute re-workings of carefully selected diamonds that thematically each spring from one of my films’.
