Since the very start of cinema, entertainment has always played an important role in its progress. For the first Sunday of Advent, short film comedies from both the early cinema era and the present are being presented that only whet the appetite for more. DER NEUE SCHREIBTISCH (Karl Valentin, Germany 1913) shows the treacherous nature of the world of objects more than 100 years ago. In THE MIDNIGHT PATROL (Lloyd French, USA 1933), Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy manage to get in their own way. In the short film comedy DAS LICHT (Anna Faroqhi, Haim Peretz and pupils of the Anna-Seghers-Gemeinschaftsschule) from 2015, the Arsenal cinema itself becomes a location. After the screening, we will be making an optical lens from household objects. Do you know what a laterna magica is? (af) (27.11.)
