New essay about Dreyer

Roos about Dreyer: The Danish cinematographer and documentarist Jørgen Roos (1922-1998) worked closely together with Dreyer on several occasions and made the documentary 'Carl Th. Dreyer' in 1966.

This essay about Dreyer is part of Roos’ memoirs and has never been published before. We are very grateful to Roos’ son, cinematographer Peter Roos, for letting us publish this essay on the Carl Th. Dreyer website. It gives us useful background information on Dreyer’s Jesus project, his eccentricities and his untamed ideas.
