VIDEOSCHNIPSEL TALK –„Glotze, Kino, Filmtheater“ (“Flimmerbox, Cinema, Filmtheater“) by Jürgen Kuttner

Radio host and performance artist Jürgen Kuttner presents one of his legendary Videoschnipsel-talks for us at the eleventh LICHTER Film Festival. This time, he takes on German filmmaking and the medium that once formed our taste in film: German television.

When LICHTER will ask about the future of German film at the Congress on Festival-Thursday and Friday, Jürgen Kuttner will add to the discourse with entertaining insights into the shimmering world of German film- and television history. At the Volksbühne Berlin, in the span of 20 years, he perfected the honest format of the Videoschnipsel-talk, to subsequently fill theatres around the Republic. With filmic charade and insanity well-grounded in cultural science, the performance artist enters into Frankfurt's  Zoo-Lichtspiele.
