Director of photography Robby Müller is one of the few people in the world who knows how to play the sun. How to catch its rays like butterflies. How to strike its beams like chords. Not only does music reverberate and resonate from these tenderly spun threads of light, the camera turns into a musical instrument as well and the whole world dances, radiates, is illuminated. For her film essay Living the Light - Robby Müller, director and director of photography Claire Pijman had access to Müller’s personal archive: thousands of Hi8 videos, personal pictures, set photos and Polaroids that he shot throughout his career. The film intertwines these images with excerpts of his oeuvre, creating a fluid and cinematic continuum.
