Kinderfilme von Harun Farocki

Film still from STAUNEN: two young girls sitting lying next to each other in bed, asleep. One is holding a cuddle toy, the sheets are light purple.

Sun 25.09.

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+.
