From November 20 to 30, 2005, the Film Museum staged the first retrospective of the films of the Belgian filmmaking duo and brothers Jean-Pierre (*1951) and Luc (*1954) Dardenne in Austria. Complimenting the program were screenings of selected works by the Dardennes' regular cameraman, Benoît Dervaux (*1966). The Dardennes and Dervaux were all present on November 25 to answer questions from the audience following a screening of their, at the time, most recent film, L'Enfant (2005). In this excerpt, Jean-Pierre Dardenne discusses the team's unique method of working with actors. (In French & German)
