Public Screening – 
The Harun Farocki Institute Presents

Already during her studies at the Institut für Filmgestaltung der HfG Ulm, Claudia von Alemann was developing cinematic counter-narratives on the social function of the woman in front of and behind the camera. In ES KOMMT DRAUF AN, SIE ZU VERÄNDERN (West Germany 1973), Alemann goes to women’s places of work at the Adler factory in Frankfurt or at Leitz-Optik in Wetzlar, where she examines and makes visible the different forms of female industrial work: factories and families are places of exploitation, which don’t just have to be interpreted but also changed. Marta Rodríguez and Jorge Silva were making CHIRCALES (1966–1972) at the same time in Colombia, a “cine-sociology” (Julianne Burton) about the Castañeda family, a brick-working family who live on the edge of Bogotá. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Claudia von Alemann. (HaFI) (16.5.)
