De kijk van Koolhoven: Tijdreizen
Not interested in dry lectures, but keen to learn everything there is to know about film? With his irresistible gift of the gab, presenter Martin Koolhoven takes us through the history of film. Martin himself will join us at Eye to watch all six episodes of the VPRO TV series De Kijk van Koolhoven on the big screen, in advance of the TV broadcast.
As in the previous season, Martin discusses the history of film on the basis of several themes. Tonight he looks at time travels, one of our oldest fantasies, experienced in former times by shamans journeying into the other world, later by means of that curious device called the time machine. Followed by Time After Time.
Time After Time (Nicholas Meyer, US 1979, 112”)It seems unreal, Jack the Ripper (David Warner) escaping to 1980 in the time machine of author H.G. Wells (Malcolm McDowell) because the law is closing in on him. Filmmaker Nicholas Meyer proves it”s anything but impossible in this highly entertaining pastiche on the SF genre. Wells pursues the Ripper to prevent a mad murderer running loose in a world revolutionized by technology.
