Film presentation

Remote Memories film presentation
Uecker Square, Media Harbour, Düsseldorf

In collaboration with hafenlichtspiele,KAI 10 | Raum für Kunst has organized a film screening, to take place on the Ueckerplatz, at the Mediaharbor in Düsseldorf. Starting with four short films by avant-garde filmmakers, Hans Richter’s animated geometrical shapes and Walter Ruttman’s “musical paintings” - all of which mark the beginning of abstract experimental film in Germany - the presentation will move on to the feature film Alphaville. These filmmakers were not only sources of inspiration for ensuing generations of directors, but also for visual artists like Bernd Ribbeck. With its inversions of black-and-white, Alphaville by Jean-Luc Godard influenced David Noonan’s work.
