Jim Jarmusch

Jim Jarmusch was first inspired to make film on an exchange to Paris. Upon his return he attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Since his schooling he has continued to make independent films. He has a deadpan wit and a minimalist style, and his movies often follow the theme of popular perceptions of America viewed by outsiders.

Jim Jarmusch

Dopo un viaggio studio a Parigi che lo ispira a intraprendere la carriera cinematografica, Jarmusch decide di iscriversi alla New York University Tisch School of the Arts, dove studia fino a diventare tra i più importanti registi del cinema indipendente americano. I suoi lavori, dallo spiccato stile minimalista, hanno spesso come protagonista la rappresentazione dell’America dagli occhi di personaggi alienati, ai margini della società americana.
