Think:Film Warm-Up: SUMMER 70 and Analogue Zone’s Workshop Presentation


This Sunday at 8pm, Arsenal Institut für Film und Videokunst will host the first of two warm-up events leading up to Think:Film, the International Experimental Cinema Congress 2012.

They will present SUMMER 70, an Italian-Egyptian experimental film by Paolo Isaja and Nagy Shaker, made in Italy in 1970. The 63 minute film, “a meditation on freedom at the turn of the 1970s, which utilizes the full vocabulary of experimental cinema to evoke youthful experimentation and energetic abandon” (MoMA) will be screened in a newly restored 16mm print. The Egyptian director Nagy Shaker will be present for a discussion.

Beforehand, LaborBerlin will present results from Analogue Zone, a workshop on analogue filmmaking which was held in Cairo in May of this year. Four of the participants of this workshop are in Berlin at the moment for a second workshop held at our lab in Wedding.
