Leonard Retel Helmrich

Leonard Retel Helmrich regisseur

Leonard Retel Helmrich was born in the Netherlands in 1959. He graduated from the Netherlands Film and Television Academy in 1986 with his fiction film The Drowning Man (De Drenkeling). In 1990 he made his first fiction feature film The Phoenix Mystery. In 1991 he filmed and directed the documentary Moving Objects which was a success in Netherlands cinemas.

Since his film Eye of the Day (Stand van de Zon) which he shot in Indonesia between 1998 and 2001, Retel Helmrich’s films have screened and won acclaim at film festivals worldwide garnering major documentary film awards. These include the SUNDANCE inaugural Grand World Documentary Award 2005, the Special Jury Award for World Documentary 2011, the prestigious Grand Joris Ivens Award IDFA Amsterdam 2004 and 2010. He has served on the jury of many film festivals around the world, including Shanghai, Warshau, Norway, Seoul, Romania, Amsterdam. He has had major retrospectives of his work run at Visions du Réel in Nyon Switzerland, Rencontres Internationales Du Documentaire in Montréal, the ASTRA in Sibiu Romania, the NFCT in Tel Aviv, Israel, MOMA New York and currently at the Van Abben Museum in Eindhoven. He has also lectured and screened his films at numerous educational institutions including the Flaherty Seminar program in New York, and at Harvard University where he was on a Fellowship at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies. During his fellowship he was editing the film Position Among the Stars which is the third film of his trilogy on contemporary Indonesia.

Leonard shoots as well as directs all his own films and is best known for a philosophy and approach he calls “Single Shot Cinema” which involves long takes with a camera orbiting the subjects. Above all in his films it is the framing and movement of the camera that captures and leads the emotions of the audience. He has run over 60 workshop programs in his Single Shot Cinema technique for film festivals, television broadcasters, independent film makers, film schools and universities worldwide in Europe, Asia, Australia, North and South America and in Africa.
