Cailleau and Russell at Berlinale


LaborBerlin is very proud to announce that the latest collaborative film by Guillaume Cailleau and Ben Russell will have its world premiere at this year’s Berlinale. The hand processed 16mm film was produced as part of LaborBerlin’s workshop in Athens last year, Hand Over Cinema, in which international fimmakers, cineastes, artists and students gathered to make their experiments in the capital of Greece. Cailleau and Russell’s film is called Austerity Measures, runs 8 minutes, and screens on February 11th and 12th at Forum Expanded. The film is a color-separation portrait of the Exarchia neighborhood of Athens: In a place where fists are raised like so many columns in the Parthenon, this is a film of surfaces – of grafittied marble streets and wheat-pasted city walls.
