Wir irren allesamt, nur jeder irret anders (after Ludwig van Beethoven) Jean-Luc Fafchamps
Zyklus von Kleinigkeiten Ana Torfs

Ana Torfs made her first and only full-length film, Zyklus von Kleinigkeiten in 1998. It was based on Ludwig Van Beethoven’s so-called ‘conversation notebooks’. These notebooks were an important resource in enabling the composer to continue to communicate after his hearing declined dramatically in 1818. To celebrate the digitalisation of this film by the Royal Belgian Film Archive (CINEMATEK) and the Dutch Eye Filmmuseum, Ictus plays music by Jean-Luc Fafchamps. He has taken inspiration from Wir irren allesamt, nur jeder irret anders, Beethoven’s final and perhaps most mysterious work.
