KINO presents | Robby Müller: Director of Photography

Starting 16 September we’re honoring the groundbreaking Dutch visual artist and director of photography, Robby Müller with a film program and photo exhibition.For nearly four decades Müller collaborated with independent cinema auteurs and created their style in visual storytelling with his mastery in the use of natural light, composition and framing. He steered away from big studio films in Hollywood and chose character driven projects focussing on the human experience. He has worked with Friedkin, Von Trier, Wenders and Jarmusch, just to name a few. He met Jarmusch during IFFR in 1980 and met up in the very building that KINO is now situated (then LantarenVenster). Instead of living in the US, Müller preferred to travel to the film sets. While on the road he religiously documented his journey, making light and composition studies through his (polaroid) photographs and videos. In collaboration with his wife Andrea Schirmer-Müller, we selected five polaroids from his private collection and we’re proud to exhibit these in our foyer for the foreseeable future. With special thanks to Annet Gelink Gallery.
