Arsenal: Rising Stars, Falling Stars – Monkey Business
For the last time this year, Vaginal Davis presents her series at the Kuppelhalle at silent green in Wedding. She regularly selects treasures from Arsenal's collection of 16mm prints which receive a special contextualization via her introductions, with a musical accompaniment by Daniel Hendrickson.
For the Christmas edition, she has decided on the Marx Brothers: the film MONKEY BUSINESS (Norman Z. McLeod, USA 1931) from the American pre-Code era tells a story of immigration into the USA: Groucho, Chico, Harpo and Zeppo try to enter the country as blind passengers from Europe. Groucho on Living Archive: "The only thing I can say about the Marx Brothers' films is that there won't be a new one."
