Public Screening – The Harun Farocki Institut presents

LOGIK DES GEFÜHLS, 1981

At the 12th International Forum of New Cinema in 1982, Ingo Kratisch was represented by two films - as a cameraman on Harun Farocki’s "Etwas wird sichtbar" (Something Becomes Evident) and as director and editor of LOGIK DES GEFÜHLS (Logic of Emotion) (Screenplay: Jutta Sartory). In a poetic text, Cäzilia Gall writes: "The main protagonist is Georg, lovesick, for whom there is nothing more to portray. People, whom he meets. They are like extras on the empty planks of his heart: 'The Traveller', 'The Poet', 'The Lover', 'The Gambler', 'The Deranged One', 'The Man in the Port' and others. And the plot: "What happens? Nothing much. […] Where is it set? In an in-between space, between lost love and a coming love. Winter. Berlin. 1981. Anna has separated from Georg. Silence." Starring Farocki as "The Deranged One". Ingo Kratisch and Jutta Sartory will be present as Arsenal’s guests. (HaFI) (11.1.)
