Darren Aronofsky On Connecting NOAH To Modern Audiences And Cinematography

Noah director Darren Aronofsky discusses his anticipated Biblical epic, commenting on re-teaming with cinematographer Matthew Libatique and praising his work on the film. He also talks about how the story can connect to modern audiences.



Speaking with The Playlist, Academy Award nominated director Darren Aronofsky discusses his next project, the Biblical epic Noah which is also based on the Black Swan helmer's graphic novel of the same name. Aronofsky offers some details on his re-collaboration with cinematographer Matthew Libatique (who he previously worked with on The Wrestler), praising his work on the movie and his "incredible technical abilities". He also discusses how he believe modern audiences can connect to the classic story of Noah's Ark in this new film. For his full interview with The Playlist, click the source link below.

"On “Noah”, he just had incredible technical abilities, and the type of things we pulled off -- I think there’s very few people on the planet that could have done what he can do," Aronofsky says. "There were nights when we had six huge cranes -- the type you build skyrises with -- holding up giant rigs of lights and rain rigs and the complication and sophistication of the equipment is just so technically difficult that very few people could have done that. So there are those skills, but he also has the tenderness and sensitivity to look at a performance and see how he can help it."

"I haven’t really started to talk about the film yet because I only finished filming two weeks ago, so I really don’t know yet what’s going on and what it’s about," he says concerning how modern audiences can connect to the film. "In the Bible, the story is only a couple of pages, and the perception we have of it in the West is more as a children’s toy -- an old man with a long beard and animals two by two on the boat. And there’s so much more to the story than that…there’s a lot of clues there about what the story means. So it was about trying to create a world where the story of Noah could be truthful and could take place, and make it something that could connect to a modern audience. There’s a lot of ideas in that story that actually are very, very relevant to what’s going on right now, so we tried to create a story that would ring true to people both that believe that it really happened and to those who think it’s a story."

Noah stars Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth, Ray Winstone and Sir Anthony Hopkins. The film is set to hit theaters March 28th, 2014.
