CONTINENTAL FLAVOUR AT HULL SCREEN

 

The ‘Places & Spaces’ season at Hull Screen continues tomorrow evening (Thursday) with the showing of three short films from France and Germany.

 

‘Berlin Symphony of a City’ (Dir: Walter Ruttman, Germany, 1927, 52’) is billed as “a dynamic vision of Berlin shot with both moving and concealed cameras from dawn until midnight.”

 

After ‘A Propos de Nice’(Dir: Jean Vigo, France, 1930, 26’), a film depicting life in Nice photographed by Boris Kaufman, Hull Screen will also show ‘Night & Fog’ (Alain Resnais, France, 1955, 31’).

 

One of the first films to reflect upon the atrocities of the Holocaust, ‘Night & Fog’ intercuts images of abandoned concentration camps with contemporary newsreel footage.

 

The showings, which are presented in collaboration with the Hull School of Art & Design (part of the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside), will begin at 7.30pm on Thursday 10th February.

 

The ‘Places & Spaces’ season continues on Thursday evenings until and including 9th March 2000.
