Alex Gerbaulet Spotlight – In Person

  • , Filmmuseum 73 min Ticket

Four films as “manuals for a kind of activism compounding art and politics into one idea” (Katharina Sykora): Tattooed Prisoners and Depth of Field were created ten years apart from each other. They explore how right-wing slogans and actions have become inscribed in bodies and places in Germany. The multiple-award-winning Shift combines the search for traces of a more recent German history with the filmmaker’s autobiographical narration, before our eyes are directed toward interiors and domestic violence in The Sleeper.
