Public Screening – The Harun Farocki Institute Presents

NIGHTSHIFT(1981)by Robina Rose (in collaboration with Nicola Lane) was shot as a low budget film over five nights at the Portobello Hotel in west London, where the filmmakers regularly worked to make ends meet. It was created in parallel to other important projects by British filmmakers of the 70s and early 80s, which explored the work of women in relation to politics, film, desire, and society. Today, the film is largely unknown, although the info-sheet for the 12th International Forum of New Cinema states that it was the “best British film of this edition” of the Edinburgh Film Festival; with filmmaker Jon Jost on the camera, it also entered the American independent film scene. We are showing NIGHTSHIFT together with LARISSA(1980) by Elem Klimow, a cinematic tribute to Larissa Scheptiko, one of the most significant Soviet film directors. (dm) (30.5.)
