IMPAKT TV episode #17: Friday 20:30

With Agustina Comedi, Mounir Samuel and Katerina Gregos

5 November 2021
20:30 — 21:30

Location: IMPAKT TV from Koepelzaal

We start this rich IMPAKT TV episode with a screening of the film Playback. Ensayo de una despedida (2019) by Agustina Comedi. The film collects unique and unknown footage from Argentina. In Córdoba, far from the Argentine capital, the end of a military regime promises a spring that is all too brief. “La Delpi” is the only survivor of a group of friends who are transgender women and drag-queens, who began to die of aids in the late 80s. In a Catholic and conservative city, the Grupo Kalas made their weapons and trenches out of improvised dresses and lip-syncing. The screening is followed by a conversation with Augustina Comedi. 

After the screening and conversation, we will talk to Mounir Samuel, Egyptian-Dutch political scientist, publicist, middle-east correspondent, and author. On the main stage he just gave a provocative keynote to uncover the Biblical story of Genesis.

Lastly we end this episode with Katerina Gregos, who will take us through the concept of the festival exhibition Modern Love (or Love in the Age of Cold Intimacies), on view at the IMPAKT [Centre for Media Culture] and the Centraal Museum from 3 November 2021 till 6 February 2022.

This episode is hosted by Rosa Wevers.
