Looking for Action in Hessen, Germany

Linus de Paoli, Johannes Thomsen

Director Linus de Paoli and film maker Johannes Thomsen go on a cinematographic research journey through Hessen and map the world in moving images. They want to prove that you can find cinematic images with the simplest tools at the most unexpected locations with an 8 mm camera.

Following the analogue projection, we are pleased about the insights into the work of film historian and archivist Christoph Draxtra. Researcher Klára Feikusová provides a theoretic perspective on the convergence of cinema and television.
