arsenal 5 at HKW

July 16 — August 23 2020

Cinema is a space of opportunity and a place of action, even under the open sky. On six weekends, Kino Arsenal will show film highlights from its archive on the Haus der Kulturen der Welt’s roof terrace. The films take the audience outdoors: They head out to gather pictures in landscapes sacrificed to tourism. They dig up images from the earth and from archives to take them where they tell stories. They observe animals that critically meet our gaze. They cross the desert. And finally, the films explore the interior of HKW as a stage, as a frame of content reference, and as a production location. With films by James Benning, Filipa César, Denis Coté, Thomas Heise, Armin Linke, Maha Maamoun, Hila Peleg, Philip Scheffner, Kidlat Tahimik, Akram Zaatari and many others. Detailed information will follow shortly
