    Directors Lounge Screening
    Dagie Brundert: Ode an Sommer

    Berlin's cultural scene would not be the same, if filmmaker Dagie Brundert was not there. The artist started off in the 90's with some female colleagues as FBI, Freie Berliner Ischen. With ironic and unconventional films they challenged established and artsy art forms, skewed films spiced up with resonances of Camp and Beat, as it reverberated in some young circles in the first decade after the breakdown of the wall. Since then, Brundert stuck to her guns of Super-8 filmmaking with admirable creative productivity. She records everyday occurrences, the obvious things on sight and the things offside, however always dispersing a positive message.

    Nocturnal Reflections presents 3 films by Giuseppe Boccassini.
