SchoolCinemaWeeks 2017


Arsenal is represented at the SchoolCinemaWeeks with two films: the documentary SAUERBRUCH HUTTON ARCHITEKTEN (Harun Farocki, Germany 2013, 17.11.) and the feature BARAKAH MEETS BARAKAH (Mahmoud Sabbagh, Saudi Arabia 2016, 20.11.). SAUERBRUCH HUTTON ARCHITEKTEN gives insights into the work of the Berlin architecture office of Louisa Hutton and Matthias Sauerbruch, who are primarily known for the striking colors of their façade designs. The film hones the gaze for architecture, product design, and urban planning just as it does for working processes. Constructed space is able to be experienced as designed space. In the Saudi Arabian romantic comedy BARAKAH MEETS BARAKAH, civil official Barakah meets Bibi, who is a well-known blogger and model. But how are the two of them supposed to get to know each other better in a country that views any form of dating with total hostility? With breathtaking flair, Bibi and Barakah subvert the system of tradition, labels, and religious police. (sts) Registration at
