    • Synopsis
    • Director and Director of Photography Claire Pijman had access to thousands of Hi8 video diaries, pictures and polaroid’s that Müller photographed while he was at work on one of the more than 70 features he shot through his career; often with long term collaborators such as Wim Wenders, Jim Jarmusch and Lars von Trier.

      The film intertwines those images with films excerpts, thus creating a fluid and cinematic continuum. In his score for LIVING THE LIGHT, Jim Jarmusch gives this wide raging scale of life and art, an additional music voice.

      Robby Müller's work has been compared to painters like Vermeer and Hopper, other masters of light. Even when his films are finished, his images keep on moving. The light never fades because he always creates space for human emotions to come into the light.
      Living the Light is the story of that light.
