Film programme

Großes Kino, Kleines Kino #65: Let's play - playing games in the film (from 5 years)
Concept/Moderation: Stefanie Schlüter
The programme brings together games in film under the title Let's play. It starts with the Schattenspiel (D 2016), which was produced by pupils from the Wedding School in the Arsenal-Filmatelier's film workshop Licht und Farbe. In Sally (Luna Maurer & Roel Wouters, NL 2005), marbles play a game according to their own rules: Inside a glass box, they overcome the laws of gravity and roll effortlessly up the walls. 33 Yoyo Tricks (P. White, USA 1976) delivers what the title promises: a yoyo champion shows off his tricks, which have great names such as a walk with a dog. Fadenspiele (Detel Aurand & Ute Aurand, D 1999) brings objects - sticks, threads, stones and sand - to life as if there were no hands involved. An urban square becomes a large play area in Tér - A Square (István Szábo, Hungary 1971), music by Vivaldi accompanies the colourful hustle and bustle of children and adults.
