Last week André appeared at DOCVILLE in Belgium to hold a masterclass and for them to screen three of his films.

“Andre Singer is a monument in the world of documentaries. After his doctorate in anthropology, he started making non-fiction in the 1970s. He produced over 55 documentary films and series, including many award-winning titles and collaborations with well-known names.

He produced Joshua Oppenheimer’s Oscar-nominated documentary The Act of Killing (2014) and the worldwide TV series Stephen Fry in America. But his main brother-in-arms is Werner Herzog, for whom he has been producing films for a quarter of a century. In 2014, Singer took place in the director’s chair for the memorable WWII documentary Night Will Fall. His last achievement is another collaboration with Herzog, this time as co-director of Meeting Gorbachev. The perfect occasion for DOCVILLE to put the spotlight on him as Artist in Focus.
