Between 1973 and 1977, Harun Farocki directed several episodes of the TV series Sesame Street (US, starting in 1969) and Sandmännchen (W Ger, 1959 – 1989). The films are everyday observations of the world. Sometimes they are educational, sometimes playful. Sometimes the children – as actors and narrators – conjure up the magic of reality, and sometimes documentary observation is front and center. The films are about boats, bridges, stones, jackhammers, production, and the division of labor – everything from the marvelous to the mundane. Anna Faroqhi, who acted in some of her father’s films and is today a director, writer, and educator, will take the audience through the compilation. Recommended for children 5+.
