The Film Series
Seven days. Seven films. Seven times dispute. The film series StreitFilme presents selected feature films of European and US-American cinema and their perspectives on dispute and (democratic) decision-making. The cinema programme focuses on the negotiation of various social issues of dispute and conflict, but also on the nature and structures of dispute between rhetorical artistry and escalating violence. The films are accompanied by an introductory lecture by a scholar and a joint audience discussion after each film screening.
The StreitFilms take place at 8 pm in the cinema of the DFF - Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum. The following seven films will be shown. The order will be adjusted if necessary.
All non-German speaking films will be shown in OmU - original language with (German) subtitles.
