A ruined landscape scattered with settlements

Cinema is a saga about loss, with archives as ossuaries where the perishable remains of films are often only collected and stored as fragments. Yet, our longing to grasp the work as a whole exceeds us and has, over decades, created wild offshoots – reconstructions that are longer than the original; director’s cuts in which the director seemingly forgets what the film is about because why would one otherwise need multiple versions? Based on a wide range of examples addressing the relationship between fragment and whole, Olaf Möller will speak about how we deal with film fragments and how our experience of film is fragmented in return. An evening of art and trash, in which the boundaries between the two are not always clear.

Olaf Möller. From Cologne. Writes about and screens films.
