Family Affairs (Dorothee Wenner in cooperation with Erika and Ulrich Gregor)

"Family Affairs" is a personal, almost private – and yet hopefully insightful – collection of stories about single films in Arsenal's archive, which were either shown in the Berlinale Forum section or were purchased, given as gifts or arrived in Berlin via other channels. Indeed it has often been a question of chance and happenstance, preferences of taste, political convictions, financial restrictions or tactical moves that have brought certain films into our archive. On the occasion of Arsenal's 50th birthday, we are presenting the first series of these "netflicks" as part of Living Archive on our website and in the cinema foyer. (Rotes Foyer)
