"Ouim Ouenders"
22 September 2007 | by (Venezuela) – See all my reviews

I'd say filmmaker Wim Wenders. QUOTE: "Glas" is presented in film schools as an exemplar of what is known as a "process documentary." There's no voice-over to either guide or otherwise influence the viewer. The film is simply shot-after-shot of glass-making. It might have been underwritten by the Dutch bottle industry, because that seems to be its main thrust: the manufacture of bottles. Lotsa shots of mechanization, from wide-shots to mediums to macro close-ups. This film is usually shown as an intended primer for aspiring cinematographers: the exposures and lighting presented particular challenges to the DP. One curious artifact: At the end of the film, there's a credit for someone named, "Ouim Ouenders." Given the Dutch translation/ transposition, vis-a-vis spelling, who, exactly, is that guy? Someone we all might otherwise know? UNQUOTE
