Sebastian Cordes is a Copenhagen based filmmaker and writer. He has a BA in philosophy, and debuted with LIFE AND TIMES OF DON ROSA in 2010 which was selected for TOP:DOX at CPH:DOX and got a lot of attention in Danish national media – among other things for being the first to use crowdfunding in Denmark. His second feature length film A PLACE CALLED LLOYD was nominated as best Nordic film at CPH:DOX in 2015 and was selected at IDFA in 2016 to the special program ‘The Quiet Eye’ that aimed to show the best slow/poetic documentaries since the year 2000. This film has, among other things, also lead to talks on slowness and boredom in art film at University College London in 2016 og at Amsterdam University in 2018. His third film VISITOR premiered at CPH:DOX in 2018. On this occasion the Danish paper Politiken published his Slow Cinema Manifest. He’s currently working a book on the creative potential in boredom to be published by Forlaget Kronstork.
