Body-Awareness

Sat, 10. 3., 21:30Sun, 11. 3., 19:30

Ob die Herausforderungen der Pubertät, der Umgang mit Traumata oder die Erforschung der eigenen Sexualität, die Protagonistinnen der Filme dieser Zusammenstellung gewähren sehr intime Einblicke in ihr Leben. Surreal und traumhaft fügen sich Selbsterleben und Körperwahrnehmungen zu assoziativen Bilderströmen, die uns als Zuschauer*in oft mitten hinein katapultieren in die Mysterien des Unbewussten. Dauer: 70'

‘If there is rebirth after death, wish to become a tree. Stand for eternity, no postures for grief and joy. Half reposing in the dust, half soaring in the wind; half spattering the shade, half basking in the sun. Greatly prideful, greatly taciturn. Never to cling, never to seek…’ – Sanmao
