I will be part of this year’s Berlin Critics’s Week debate program following the screening of Riar Rizaldi’s Notes from Gog Magog and Omer Fast’s Abendland. The evening’s program, titled Carnival of Souls, will feature Omer Fast, Riar Rizaldi, Massimo Perinelli and myself, with the session moderated by Dennis Vetter.
We will delve into a discussion about the horror of capitalism, the surreality of politics, and the concept of masking in both playful and serious contexts. The conversation will explore the limits of the bearable and the unambiguity inherent in certain signs, faces and images, particularly in the realm of activist cinema.
The event will take place on Tuesday, February 20, at 8pm at Hackesche Köfe Kino.
