Von der Notwendigkeit dessen (Whereby according to necessity)
Thursday, 27 September 2012, 21h
Z-Bar, Bergstraße 2, 10115 Berlin-Mitte
With guest Jan Eichberg
Philipp Hartmann, whose short film comedies about Karlsruhe called "Der Anner" ("the other, there" in Southern Dialect) have been audience favorites on festivals, also works in very different styles with film, preferably with Super-8, and with much more subtle humor. Tracking the traces of Alexander Humboldt or his grandfather in Latin America, reflecting on the physical-poetical conditions of condensation trails in the sky, or recording the last remnants of an old lady who passed away, he always combines documentary with fictional approaches in such subversive, subtle ways that the viewer at the same time may be following the "movies of his own mind" or his own associations while watching these films. In addition, Philipp Hartmann will present Jan Eichberg as guest artist in the program, who creates short narratives in similar aesthetic ways. Both artists with be present and available for Q&A.
