Experimental Minute Films by Alexander Kluge w/ post-screening discussion

Thursday, October 11, 2018 at 7:30pm to 7:30pm

Willard Straight Theatre
Central Campus

Ithaca Premiere! Free w/ post-screening discussion by Erik Born (German Studies, CU).

2018 > Germany > Directed by Alexander Kluge
Alexander Kluge (b. 1932) is a polymath of European modernity and contemporary globalization, whose prize-winning work in literature, film, television, music, sound, history, digital media, and social theory turns on catastrophe, hope, and transformation. Re-imagining agency since the 1960s, Kluge also probes new perspectives for 21st-century culture and society. Available in Ithaca for the first time in the context of an international conference on Kluge's perspectival innovations in creative arts and critical practice, a sampling of his recent experimental "minute films" encourages us to see, hear, and think constellations of revolution, war, cityscapes, and screen experience itself anew. Conference info & cosponsors online. Subtitled.
