Film premiere and discussion with Claus Carstensen, Peter Bonde and Thomas Andersen (artists and filmmakers, Copenhagen)

The artists Claus Carstensen (born in 1957) and Peter Bonde (born in 1958) as well as the photographer Thomas Andersen (born in 1969) decided to make a road movie on road movies. In so doing, a film emerges about filmmaking and perception when the world becomes a stage. Central to the history of the road movie is the notion of movement as a moment of freedom. Yellow Waste Blue Heaven starts where most films end: on the side of the highway. The trip takes us to Joshua Tree, Palm Springs, 29 Palms, Slab City, and other sites near Los Angeles. 

Claus Carstensen and Peter Bonde are internationally acclaimed artists and teach at Copenhagen’s Royal Danish Art Academy.
