re-selected: Amos Vogel Korrespondenz

Amos Vogel (r.), Westdeutsche Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen 1959

A research project on Amos Vogel and his connection to the Oberhausen Short Film Festival has begun. In the 60s, the New York film curator and publicist left his mark on the festival as a jury member, correspondent, and the one responsible for selecting films from the US. Vogel’s letters and film notes also suggest that Oberhausen was in turn a treasure trove for his work in New York. This program brings together five “New German” films that he was passionate about at the time: films by Wolf Hart, Wolfgang Ramsbott & Harry Kramer, Werner Königs, and Lucas Maria Böhmer, in which Vogel saw something new seen only seldom today. In addition: Dan Drasin’s legendary documentary SUNDAY (Oberhausen prizewinner ‘62) about how the New York police attacked the folk music scene at Washington Square Park, that is, right in front of Vogel’s door. (th) All the films will be shown on analogue prints. re-selected is a project by Oberhausen Short Film Festival in collaboration with Arsenal as part of Archive außer sich. (3.12.)
