Martin Kušej – Metre By Metre
Television documentary, 60’
Metre By Metre accompanies one of the most successful impresarios of German-speaking Europe through an eventful autumn. From amicable discussions to the stress of the final rehearsal right up to arguments and unconditional trust. Martin Kušej is continuous point of reference, without external comment or explanation on his significance the film not only shows his creative work, but also gives profound insight into his environment, in which psychological tact is as important as artistic vision.
Martin Kušej, his work and his impact.
