DJ-SET: DJOKI DJANGO
The movies chosen for the film festival on 21 March 2018 focus on the theme of resistance, which may be rooted in personal experience as well as expressed outwardly as a search for a common language.
DJORDJE ČENIĆ, ‘DOWN THERE’
>> ‘Our yellow Opel is packed. It sits low. It smells of coffee. Once again, we made it over the border with our smuggled goods. On the roof is the door to the house we are building in the village.’ [From the trailer Unten (‘Down There’)]
NINA KUSTURICA, CIAO CHÉRIE
>> Driven by the desire to bridge distances, people visit the telephone booths of a quirky Viennese call shop. The telephone wire, much like an umbilical cord, connects them with a loved one or a distant home. Ciao Chérie takes us on a journey around the world in sound, while visually, an international cosmos blossoms in the singular space.
THE RIAHI BROTHERS, EVERYDAY REBELLION
>> Everyday Rebellion is a documentary essay as well as a web platform about non-violent forms of protest and civil disobedience in the 21st century; a project about technology supported methods of resistance as seen not only in the current Arabian and Iranian uprisings but also through previous revolts, both successful and less successful. The film describes the everyday forms of conscious and subconscious resistance of societies fighting suppression and repression.
