New Wave of Directors

[7 August 2007]

By Daniel Ferm

On July 30, 2007, two great directors died: Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni. Although these visionaries have died, their deaths have opened people’s eyes, appreciating current visionaries. These directors include Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, David Lynch, Alfonso Curón, Guillermo del Toro, and many others. Although these filmmakers use their medium differently than Bergman and Antonioni, they will be remembered for their unique cinematic achievements for generations to come.
