Documentary director David N. Jahn started working as an assistant at Giger's atelier in Zürich in 2000. After he returned back to Prague, he co-operated with Giger as an initiator and consultee of the Prague exhibition, taking place from April, 14 – September, 13 2005.
Jahn offered Giger to produce a DVD that would map his work and current life. The shooting took place at Giger’s studio in Zürich and in Gruyéres where the H.R. Giger Museum and bar are located. In Vienna, they managed to film an interview with the Austrian fantastic artist Ernst Fuchs. In New York, the film-makers encountered Debbie Harry (Blondie) for whom Giger produced an album cover and two music videos. At the vernissages in Paris and Prague, they recorded an array of interviews with other personalities of the artistic and cultural world that also appear in the film. Even though the authors don’t avoid the particular developmental periods of Giger’s work, the main purpose was not to create the artist’s biography. In this case, it is more likely considered to be an authentic perspective on the peculiar world of this Swiss artist. Full profiles of interviewed people can be found here.


ART IN MOTION

H.R. GIGER´S WORK 3D ANIMATED
30 min. / 16:9 PAL/NTSC / Audio 5.1, 2.0 DTS / DOLBY DIGITAL

The second part of the H.R. Giger DVD is a real adventure for all Gigerfans. All those, who have met Giger’s art in books or at exhibitions, know what we are talking about. Surrealistic paintings often hide dimensions, which the viewer becomes aware of after a while and sometimes very unexpectedly.

It is the first time you will be able to see Giger’s paintings processed digitally in high resolution quality, 3D animated and together with original film music and surround sound. Watch ten moving image collages, where we used over 200 diapositives which cover the most important periods of his work. Each of those collages will be presented in an abstract story, which will tell us more about Giger´s life and artistic work.


HOME MADE

DOCUMENTARY SHOT BY DAVID N. JAHN
15 min. / 16:9 PAL/NTSC / Audio 5.1, 2.0 DTS / DOLBY DIGITAL / SUBS: EN, DE

At the time David N. Jahn was working for Giger he made a „home video“ that shows Giger´s surroundings and daily life. See Giger as you have never encountered him, funny, whole-hearted, in love with his wife Carmen. Meet Les Barany, his close friend and U.S. agent. See how the Zodiac fountain is getting cleaned. The whole movie is a subjective and intimate spectacle. „Cinema verité“ as Chris X would observe.
