DIGITAL CRYSTAL BALL: THE FUTURE, NEAR AND FAR FROM PARIS
At 7pm, the first of three Urban Research curations by DL’s Klaus W. Eisenlohr hits town… or rather, city. “The Future, The City” explores future and futuristic redfinitions of urban space, in terms of both loss and gain. Then at 8pm, Argentinian filmmaker Gustavo Postiglione takes a single city and digs to its depths with an eye for humour: Rosario, Argentine crossroads metropolis and birthplace of Che Guevara, is dissected for irony in “Lejos de Paris” (“Far From Paris”). At 9pm, another heady brew of shorts, DL Selection V, takes Space A with six premieres, including German first screenings of the black humour “5 Ways to Die” from Cyprus and “The Big Leap” (PL/SE), with its director Kristoffer Rus in attendance. Rounding all this up, Directors Lounge fittingly presents Deep House Lounge from the spinners of DJ Jense, who embraces deep/deeper/deepest sounds in Nu Disco and more, as he has done in travels across Finland and Germany. Be there, Sunday doesn’t get better!
