You gave me the time of my life - presentation of film archive
Maurice van Es
Born Rijnsburg (NL), 1984
Filming every day, Maurice van Es documents his life with a mobile phone, the instrument of our time. He has made a film for and about each of his friends, carefully looking at them to capture their youthful energy, in search for magical spontaneity.
In addition to these, he has compiled an encyclopedic archive containing thousands of short videos, classified into categories from fragments of the sea, the moon, and the sun, to trees and other everyday aspects of life.
With this archive, Van Es is offering a testimony that is as intimate as it is general, a tribute to the short time he has lived on this planet.
