The Master and the Giant / Johan van der Keuken

This publication is a complete edited film script (full storyboard drawn by hand, accompanied by handwritten and typed text) for Johan van der Keuken’s film The Master and the Giant.

The Master and the Giant (1980, 70 minutes) is midway between documentary and fiction. It explores the theme of the rivalry that creation entails: one god creates the earth, while another destroys it in order to shape a different and better world. The film brings together myth and reality, depicting two different worlds: one, that of a man and a woman in a run-down area of Amsterdam; the other, life far away in the desert of Tunisia. The film was shot and directed by Johan van der Keuken in 1980, in collaboration with Claude Ménard. Music by Willem Breuker. Production by The Movies Film Production.
