We like to welcome Florian A. Dedek with his work »Then indeed there’s got to be, what do I know, something good« (Germany, 2016) Alex Gerbaulet with "Shift" (Germany, 2015) and Karin Michalski with »Monika M« (Germany, 2003) as our guests.
"Then indeed there’s got to be, what do I know, something good" is a quote from the conversation Fassbinder has with his mother at the beginning of Germany in Autumn: the momentous essay-film that continues to be associated with the Red Army Faction (RAF) to this day. 38 years later a son once again talks to his mother. The thirty-minute film is his attempt to establish connections, seek traces, and reconstruct different stories without necessarily aligning them.
"Shift" is both a reckoning and a search for traces of the past. Layer by layer the film unfolds the portrait of the filmmaker's family - brought to life by records from private archives - and embarks on a dizzying trip through the shrinking industrial city of Salzgitter, Germany.
"Monika M." features a woman who is claiming that her personal injuries and her living conditions have to be seen in a broader political context. She is drawing parallels between her state of being in this society and the killing of the trees. Her speeches are very direct and intense but also humorous and sarcastic: “We live in a polymorph, perverted, paradoxical, patriarchal and paedophiliac society!”
Some of the artists will be present.
Admission is free
