FEATURED ATTRACTION

TWO A.M. d. Loretta Fahrenholz, 2019 European Premiere + Q&A with the director at ICA (05 OCT 19:00):

  • Artists’ Film Club presents: “A hallucinatory tale of coercion, control, and peer-to-peer surveillance on the fringes of present-day Berlin. Fahrenholz draws on Irmgard Keun’s 1937 novel, After Midnight, for her protagonist, Sanna. Where Keun’s young narrator turned a septic eye on the rise of the Nazis in prewar Germany, Fahrenholz’s Sanna is pitted against her own overbearing family of mind-reading ‘Watchers,’ who use their powers to monitor the thoughts and feelings of their human counterparts.”
