The KONTRAKLANG concert series presents the second edition of the Movie Night format at Moviemento in Kreuzberg. The program includes films and video works by composers and sound artists who deal with the medium of film in various ways. The focus is on works from the last six years, but with Dresden Dynamo by Lis Rhodes, a classic of the genre from 1971 is also included. The thematic threads of the selection are, for example, the influence of humanity on climate change or the pandemic and the associated experiences of lockdown and isolation. The essay piece The Cosmic Music of Teiji Ito (2021) by Michiko Ogawa & Manuel Pessoa de Lima, commissioned by KONTRAKLANG, can also be experienced on the big screen for the first time.
The music video of Veitstanz by Martin Grütter & Aron Kitzig (2020/22) will also be shown for the first time ever. Following the film program, KONTRAKLANG will hold a premiere celebration in cooperation with the producer of the video, Schwelbrand Virtual Edition, in the foyer.
Films and music by Olivia Block, Gunilla Sköld Feiler & Dror Feiler, Martin Grütter & Aron Kitzig, Christian Kesten, Patricia Martínez & Luis Paris, Makiko Nishikaze, Michiko Ogawa & Manuel Pessoa de Lima, Lis Rhodes, Julia Rommel und Aura Satz.
