Filmreihe – Senkrechte Leinwand: Leipziger Festival „Gegenkino“ bricht Sehgewohnheiten / News / Kultur – LVZ – Leipziger Volkszeitung
»Grenzen scheut das Gegenkino per Definition ohnehin nicht, siehe den Schwerpunkt ›Auschwitz Cinema‹ oder die queeren Filme im Programm…«
Ahem… thanks LVZ… yeah… almost. But there’s more to it than wanting to be transgressive. As a film festival we are also always trying to reflect on the political potential and functioning of the moving image. Therefore, we are glad to have Marcus Stiglegger coming to GEGENkino 2016 tonight in order to present his findings and ideas about the represantation of the Shoah and the horror of concentration camps in cinema and on TV.
24 April, 8 pm – UT Connewitz – € 8/6 (red.)
NB! The lecture will be held in German. The film though will be shown with English subtitles.
And by the way, we have a press and media archive now on our blog, where you can hear and read about the festival, in case you still don’t know what we’re doing here actually
We will also try to make available an audio recording of Stiglegger’s lecture there, if possible.
