GEORGIAN FILM SERIES: 3 MARCH - 26 MAY 2016

PROGRAM MAY 2016
PROGRAM APRIL 2016
PROGRAM MARCH 2016

           

Why a retrospective of Georgian films in Berlin? Certainly not because of Georgian film's glorious past and long history, however, one of the latest Georgian films won a grand prize at the Amsterdam Film Festival. And also not because Georgian film production greatly differs ethnographically-culturally from other countries in today's era of globalization. But, Georgian Culture is one of the oldest and richest cultures in the world.

Whether action movies, mental images, a natural or realistic view of representations, emotions and perceptions - Georgian film shows us a contemporary motion picture: by way of parody, cliché, kitsch as well as great emotions and dramas that are a part of world cinema and video art and are not isolated from the international context and can be analyzed from other artistic positions.

The aim of this film series, curated by Lily Fürstenow-Khositashvil, at the WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN is to show these cinematographic influences, continuities and similarities and examine them more closely.

Throughout the duration of the film series, interviews with Vilém Flusser will be shown in the Foyer of the WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN. We would like to thank the Vilém Flusser Archive  at the Universität der Künste Berlin for granting us permission to show this material.

Lily Fürstenow-Khositashvili 2011 received her doctorate in cultural studies from the Humboldt-Universität Berlin and has since worked as a curator and art critic. In curating exhibitions and in other projects, she seeks to provoke critical discussion, which fosters new realizations and expanded knowledge spaces.
