CIRCUMSTANCES OF DEPICTION
Location: Filmtheater ‘t Hoogt
The films in this program describe the feeling during the 1960s, established between the existential threat from war and racism and the search for artistic radicalism in dealing with film and reality. Under the influence of television, political events had advanced to being media spectacles. The flood of everyday images was especially taken up in found footage films, subjected to the dissecting hand of the filmmaker.
