Hosek Contemporary is pleased to invite you to an artist talk of Telmo Branco with a premiere of his film The Tradition.
Guests are requested to wear a mask and provide the organisers with their name, address and phone number (according to the guidelines available at www.berlin.de/corona/).
"The Tradition - The Film" fuses the disciplines of theater, dance, soundscape, and documentary to explore the aftermath of patriarchal oppression in Elvas, a small town in Southern Portugal.
Oppression has been a systematic endeavour carried out through generational lineages. It has been inflicted, recreated, normalized, and internalized, throughout the curve of time, throughout my curve of time.
"The Tradition - The Film" juxtaposes individual testimonies with poetic language and sceneries. It aims to address the psychological and sociological implications of patriarchal oppression within the community and the family unit.
