Dreamers by Jørgen Leth ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2003 in Multiple languages and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The French writer Andre Malraux went to Haiti in 1975 and discovered the riotous color and beguiling fantasy of the paintings of unschooled Haitian artists. Over the years this art has gained recognition throughout Europe and North America. In a country rife with poverty, violence and political unrest, this film introduces us to the colorful, fanciful and joyous work of elderly Haitian painters. Some are "voodoo" painters, some paint historical subjects, others paint imaginary visions, some capture everyday life and fanciful creatures from the animal kingdom. The director, Jorgen Leth, an outstanding figure in Danish cinema, captures with great integrity the spirituality and unworldliness of these aged artists who have for decades painted from their inner vision, and have gained recognition as masters of the naif. Among the artists represented are Andre Pierre, Philome Obin, Prospere Pierre Louis, Louisiane Saint-Fleurant and Salnave Philippe-Auguste
