GASTHoF Late Night hosts, Wiebke and Johannes Thomsen, presented their cut-up film ONCE UPON A TIME IN GERMANY in the OUT OF THE BOX section at the 56th Hof International Film Festival.
This home-movie cabinet of German memorial culture from the 1960s to the 1980s was created from over 50 kilometres of Super 8mm found footage. The two directors set this to live music with tape soundscapes they composed themselves and sampled text fragments from German Dada, Beat and underground literature. An analogue cinema experience that breaks with cinema while simultaneously making a declaration of love to cinema.
Wiebke & Johannes are on tour. Including at the Kulturtreff Vahrenheide, Hanover (ticket phone 01702382828) at 3 pm on Sunday, 27 November 2022, and for the 43rd European Film Festival at the Lumière in Göttingen at 8 pm on Wednesday, 30 November 2022.
