VERLORENE FORMEN, 2019

Work seldom appears in film, even though it’s full of exciting and playful processes which filmmakers can also show an interest in. In OFENBAUER (East Germany 1962), Jürgen Böttcher and five cameramen follow how an old furnace is removed from a coal mine and a new one is installed: tense faces, examining hands, the sound of rushing wind, and steel cables stretched almost to breaking point. Harun Farocki and Hartmut Bitomsky watch children playing in TRANSPORT 1 + 2 (West Germany 1973), as well as how they recognize that greater strength is obtained by working together. In VERLORENE FORMEN (Germany 2019) by Anna Faroqhi and Haim Peretz, two girls observe the laborious, centuries-old process of bronze casting in England. Following the screening, Anna Faroqhi and Haim Peretz will shoot a short stop-trick film with the audience about work. (af) For all six years and up (15.12.)
