Timotheus ueber Timo
Timo Langer (*1978) is a Director and Editor currently living in Edinburgh, UK. He likes film and filmmaking a lot. So much so it’s been rumored he says silly things like “…certain films felt like such a partner growing up.”. What nonsense.
Timo started writing and directing short films in the late 90’s and then began working as an editor.
In 2009, Langer followed director Mark Cousins to the North of Iraq to make the film
“The First Movie” about the relationship between children, cinema and war.
The film played at the Telluride Film Festival in 2010 and over 100 other Film Festivals. It also won the prestigious Prix Italia award the same year and was nominated for a Scottish BAFTA in 2011.
Also in 2011, he edited “The Guga Hunters of Ness” for Mike Day. The Eye for Film called it “… poetic, haunting, its beautiful imagery making it hard to look away”
Langer also edited Cousins’s epic “The Story of Film – An Odyssey” (2011), a 15- hour history of cinema.
It was shown at the Telluride Film Festival, The Toronto Int. Film Festival, The Berlin Int. Film Festival and The New York Museum of Modern Art as well as many other places and festivals. The Daily Telegraph called it “The cinematic event of the year…extraordinary.” and The New York Times wrote: “Elegiac and celebratory, passionate and sceptical…the place from which all future revisionism must start.”
In 2012 Langer worked with Mark Cousins on “What is this film called Love” where Cousins spends three days in Mexico City and because he does not know what to do with his time he starts talking to Sergei Eisenstein and a conversation develops …”
Again it was very well received and screened in many places.
Other films Mark and Timo worked on together were shown at festivals including the Cannes Film Festival (A Story of Children and Film) and the Sundance Film Festival (6 Desires: DH Lawrence and Sardinia) so they decided despite their differences in humour and musical taste to continue to work together as it would seem they have a good thing going. That working relationship is still going strong to this day.
In 2015 Timo returned to directing and made his first feature film I am Anna.
