With the death of Werner Nekes on January 22, 2017, the world of experimental cinema loses one of its great figures whose films have been shown in numerous international festivals and museums.
A tireless activist, Werner Nekes has been involved in a number of activities throughout his career: the production of a considerable number of films, the creation of the Hamburg Film Cooperative, the Filmbüro NW, the International Center for New Cinema, teaching in different universities and art schools, and the creation of one of the world's largest collections of objects related to pre-cinema and optical phenomena.
This program pays tribute to him by presenting some of his emblematic films.
The screening will be presented by yann beauvais.
