Frans Zwartjes Dies at 90

Filmmaker Frans Zwartjes died on November 18th, he was ninety years old. Susan Sontag once called him "the most important experimental filmmaker of his time".

Zwartjes leaves an oeuvre of over fifty films, besides being a visual artist and photographer. For many of his films he also composed the music, often in collaboration with his brother. He taught at the Free Academy in The Hague, where students themselves had to discover what they wanted. He taught them nothing, especially no rules. It led to the so-called 'Hague School', to which Zwartjes' students Paul de Nooijer, Ben van Lieshout and, more recently, Hester Scheurwater and Mark de Cloe are counted. He once said "For all the arts, you do not have to know anything. Otherwise you will do what you know. "This philosophy characterized both his lessons and his own oeuvre.
