(p.57) 7 Magic of the lens
Carl Theodor Dreyer and Ordet

Wahl Jan

University Press of Kentucky

Wahl describes the movement of the camera and its magical ability to alter what it sees. At one point, Dreyer steps away from the camera to survey the landscape. While he is away, one of the actors, Cay Kristiansen, crouches behind the camera and looks through the forbidden lens. The crew stands frozen; Bendsten, who should have been guarding the camera, is gone. Dreyer stands immobile, in shock that someone peered through his camera. When Kristiansen is finally stopped, he is dumbfounded and in awe of what he has seen through the lens.
