Talks and discussions as part of the 70. Berlinale
A Day of Panel Discussions on the Counter-Cultural Focus of the First Years, its Legacy in the Present Day and Strategies for the Challenges of the Future.
Looking back has never been more relevant. The entrenched attitudes within society which in 1971 the first International Forum of New Cinema set out to confront are reasserting themselves today with new vigour. What does the counter-cultural awakening of the late 1960s tell us at the contemporary moment?
At the invitation of Forum and Forum Expanded, filmmakers, intellectuals, curators and archivists will be coming together at silent green Kulturquartier to think about these questions.
All talks are in English.
