Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
This is a documentary included on the Dancer in the Dark DVD. It explains the complicated process that utilized 100 cameras (or eyes) to capture as many possible angles at one time. By using this process, Lars was able to create a "live" feeling to the film, especially in the non-musical parts. This process was invented by Lars von Trier and his crew and is entirely exclusive to this film. This documentary also reveals what Lars feels were the successes and the failures of using this technique. Written by

The documentary does not show clearly the directors style indeed, but its richness relays in what is not said nor showed.
It is definitely not an usual kind of movie documentary, but what to expect from an unusual movie director? Well, if the documentary does not show rehearsal scenes is because Lars Von Trier style is not to rehearsal. If it does not show himself directing is because he leaves the actors to improvisation. If does not show Bjork acting is because she asked for. The documentary does not show clearly the directors style indeed, but its richness relays in what is not said nor showed. This facts can be seen in Bjork own behind the scene where she and the other actors from the casting talk about Lars Von Trier style of directing and move making.
