DAY 10, Feb. 18


[DL8]’s penultimate tango gets going with big city stomp: Klaus W. Eisenlohr’s Urban Research series times two. First up, the 46-minute “Moscow Diary” (Adam Kosoff, UK) followed by the “Activismo Experimental: Artists Involved” section, short sojourns including “Ein kleines Stück Papier” (“A Little Piece of Paper”) in support of which Frank Behnke, Klaus Beyer, Brandstifter, Tanja Roolfs, Carsten Wagner will make a personal appearance. Then, at 20:00 (8pm), another special guest: Rosetta Messori shows “Primordial Breath” in World Premiere, a journey in photos from her Visioni Mediterranee. Still more, at 20:30 (8:30): film festival fixture Telemach Wiesinger screens his “Neue Filme” (that is, his new films, of course), experimental works that will demonstrate why so many cities from Toronto to Seoul have featured his works in their film events. At 22:00 (10pm), another slice of our own selection: “DL Selection VIII” brings us a German, a European and two World Premieres. These last two are from one and the same filmmaker, Spain’s Santiago Parres (EZO), who will reveal “Dove” and “Sinecdoquanon”, and attend the screening as well. Johanna Wagner, maker of “Submerged” and “Danaus Gilippus”, the last films of this section, will also be in attendance. Again at the 8th Berlin International Directors Lounge – a full evening, with filmmakers galore to rub shoulders with… or just chat with in the inviting environment of Naherholung Sternchen, Berolinastr. 7 (U-Schillingstr., two buildings behind Kino International).
