Camerimage: Jean-Jacques Annaud, Jean-Marie Dreujou to Receive Duo Award
Camerimage will present its Cinematographer-Director Duo Award to lenser Jean-Marie Dreujou and helmer Jean-Jacques Annaud at the 26th Camerimage International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography, which is set to run Nov. 10-17 in Bydgoszcz, Poland.
Their collaboration began with 2002's Two Brothers, a tale of two tigers struggling against captivity and human cruelty in 1920s Indochina, for which the filmmakers decided to work with real animals. Their credits also include 2007's His Majesty Minor and 2011's Black Gold. More recent collaborations included 2015's Wolf Totem, which was lensed in Mongolia with 3D camera systems, and this year's 10-episode crime miniseries The Truth About Harry Quebert Affair.
Previous winners of the Duo Award have included Vittorio Storaro and Carlos Saura; Ed Lachman and Todd Haynes; and Haris Zambarloukos and Kenneth Branagh.
