FEATURED ATTRACTION

IN DER DÄMMERSTUNDE BERLIN DE L’AUBE À LA NUIT 16mm d. Annik Leroy, 1980 + Q&A with the director at Deptford Cinema (23 MAR 16:00 – repeats 24 MAR 16:00):

  • “In the cold winter of 1980, Annik Leroy goes back to Berlin hoping to recapture the feeling she had experienced on her first visit. There, as she wanders along the Wall, she films the streets in gorgeous monochrome and records conversations with strangers reckoning with Germany’s violent past — creating all at once an Akerman-esque portrait of the city, an inquiry into the idea of collective guilt, and a deeply immersive journal of solitude.”
