A very satisfying premiere

A very satisfying premiere and second public screening. A warm introduction of my body of work and this film, which chief programmer Steve Gravestock thinks is one of my very best. Big applaus when Five Obstructions is mentioned. Everyone has seen it, and many know several other of my films, too.
No walk-outs!
The day prior to my screening, I went to see the new Godard film, which I think is magnificent. There half of the cinema walked out! I got nervous, thought to myself ' well mine is at least as experimental as his, breaking narrative conventions, allowing itself to be slow', guarding myself with my old avant-garde defiance mood: ' this is how it should be, otherwise something is wrong' etc. But no need! People stayed, and throughout my screening there was a vibrant atmosphere of genuine interest. Warm applaus afterwards. a good Q&A, civilized questions, no aggressions, me at the top of my game. Said among other things: 'Yes it's not a democratic film, but a rather egocentric, idiosyncratic film, only true to my own preferences, not wanting to be neither fair nor reasonable, only to take it as far as it needs to go. Many approached me afterwards, I was moved, thanks, and autographs.
Our own afterparty, producer Marianne as hostess. About 25 dinner guests at Le Select, a French bistro. Among my guests were Anders Leifer, Adam Philp, Jytte Jensen, Karina from Hot Docs (former Miami), Nicole (former Sundance, Miami, now Santo Domingo Festival), Cameron with Sarah, my new English publisher Jay, Lizette and Christian from Danish Film Institute, some people from Trust Nordisk.
Today a second screening, another full house. An even warmer atmosphere, people laughing in all the right places, they get it. Applaus once again for Five Obstructions, and a big applaus after the film. Good Q&A. Today a series of interviews and photo shoots, greatly managed by our publicists from Falko Ink. Everything went well, I was in good shape. a couple more lined up Sunday morning before take off at 2pm.

Kære Jørgen

Vi er tre gymnasie-elever der - nærmest som en selvfølge - skal til Vi Sidder Bare Her-koncert d. 16. september.
Vi er alle meget interesseret i kunst og isærdeleshed dine værker. Specielt dine film har gjort indtryk. Ligeledes er din indstilling til livet, samt tanker og overvelser om tilværelsen dybt fascinerende, ydermere finder vi dem meget inspirerende for vores egen tilgang til eksistensen.

Vi har netop færdiggjort den bog du udgav med Sabroe omkring jeres korrespondencer om livet , kærligheden og seksualiteten, og vi fandt det meget lærerigt og relevant for vores eget liv - selvom vi blot går i gymnasiet, og vi føler at den vækkede tanker i os.

I den sammenhæng overvejde vi om ikke vi kunne møde dig efter koncerten, for at få en kort snak med dig, efter som du er så stor en inspiration for os.

De bedste hilsner
Mikkel Stoumann Fosgrau, Nikolaj Wissing og Toke Jacobsen
