14.04.19 | GEGENkinder: Moomins and the Comet Chase / Long Day’s Journey into Night (CHN/F 2018, Bi Gan)

Thank you to all the people who made yesterday possible and special! The musicians, the people of UT Connewitz, the cooking crew, and all the others now forgotten. And: Thank you to Wilhelm Hein for being our guest and sharing his exhilarating personality!
Today, the programme is split – one half is at UT Connewitz coming up at 2pm – Moomins and the Comet Chase (in German) – an afternoon adventure for GEGENkids of all shades: bring some GEGENkids with or be a GEGENkid yourself. In the evening at 9:30, we switch to lovely Luru Kino in der Spinnerei, which we have equipped with digital 3D-technique to cherish LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT in an appropriate manner. Let’s finish our weekends together with noirish tales, vivid colours and lucid dimensions still being in our minds when we will be floating home tonight. It’s a kind of a dreamy GEGENsunday.

13.04.19 | Andrea Belfi, I T O E + Flying Moon in Space play live score for MATERIALFILME (B+W Hein) & Andrea Marinelli: SECRETSHOW

After two lovely screenings and one lovely guest yesterday at Luru Kino in der Spinnerei, it is day three of the festival. We are slowly getting into some kind of GEGENrhythm, our hearts beat fast, stop suddenly, then continue fast. Quite fitting for tonight’s solid lineup at UT Connewitz. We are happy to welcome drum wizard Andrea Belfi, I T O E and Flying Moon in Space to add live scores to films of underground luminaries Birgit and Wilhelm Hein. Alongside that, we are happy to have Andrea Marinelli from Milan as our guest, showing the German Premiere of SECRET SHOW, an audio-visual performance using overhead projectors. Being visually stimulated, while listening to sounds and beats. Quite a reasonable way to start into your Saturday evening we think.
