  • 18.00: Lecture by Anne Eusterschulte (Freie Universität Berlin): „Filmisches Sehen von Zeit-Landschaften“ Free admission for the lecture 20.00: Film screening

On the outskirts of Tehran, a man is driving through barren hills in search of someone who will cover over his dead body with earth once his suicide attempt succeeds. In TASTE OF CHERRY by Abbas Kiarostami, we are drawn into the poetic vortex of an event that traverses cinematic landscapes. In her lecture, Anne Eusterschulte (Freie Universität Berlin) examines the film-viewing of timescapes. By studying spatial vectors and temporal modes of movement, the lecture explores how Kiarostami transforms affective-multisensory reflections on cultural-historical, political-religious and existential experiences of time into a continuous movement. These landscape sequences concern themselves not only with the aesthetic modeling of time, but also with filmmaking, and the imaginative dimensions of timescape film-viewing.
The Cinepoetics Lectures are organized by Cinepoetics—Center for Advanced Film Studies at Freie Universität Berlin. (ts)
