StreitFilme – Die Frankfurter Filmtage zu Demokratie, Konflikt und Streit

Filmreihe im Kino des DFF – Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum mit Vorträgen von Hanna Pfeifer und Stefan Kroll

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.
