I May destroy you - the visual story

Meet Adam Gillham the cinematographer behind HBO's critically acclaimed drama series I May Destroy You. Adam Gillham provides a unique insight into the work with the visual intensity that gives the series the depth and seriousness that, among other things, has given the series its success.

In the series, we follow the influencer Arabella, who in the first episode is raped. The series then deals with Arabella's search for answers to who did it – and to get her revenge. The series is carried by being very intimate, simple, and emotional, and the series works primarily with close-up and expression instead of dialogue.

Throughout the process, Adam Gillham has worked very closely with series creator Michaela Coel, who also plays the lead role in the series. So do not miss Adam Gillham when he gives us an introduction to the visual work behind the series as well as the challenges and techniques, he used to bring the intense and strong emotions all the way to the screen.

And on stage together with Adam Gillham is the danish master cinematographer Manuel Alberto Claro, who will moderate this session. Manuel Alberto Claro is among others famous for his many year's of work with Director Lars Von Trier.
