The Night Watchman
A night watchman walks alone through an Anatomic Institute.
By Stephen Schwartz for DR (1971)

A lonely walk in the dark, skeletons and floating body parts caught in the beam of a flashlight… in the ‘The Night Watchman’, Detroit-born Stephen Schwartz pioneers his landmark interview technique known as the ‘moments interview’ or the ‘full Schwartz’. You can learn more about it here.

Stephen Schwartz was awarded the Prix Italia for features in 1982 and 1993. He passed away in 2013.

Made in collaboration with DR – you can listen to The Night Watchman (Nattevægteren) and more montages on their archive website.
