arsenal 3: November Program

The program of our virtual cinema arsenal 3 makes direct reference to the activities carried out by our institution: the program of the Arsenal 1 & 2 cinemas at Potsdamer Platz, the titles that form part of our arsenal distribution range, or our Living Archive archival practice, which is rooted in both participation and production. In November we will show two programs. "Why an Archive?" presents independent archives from Guangzhou/Beijing and Hong Kong.

To coincide with the presentation of Sandra Schäfer's book "Moments of Rupture: Space, Militancy & Film"on 1.12., several of her works are showing on arsenal 3.
