Dissent! - Costa/Andersen
DISSENT! Talk - after screening Où Gît Votre Sourire Enfoui
“Cinema Against the Grain” is the name that Thom Andersen has given to one of his classes. What does it mean to think of cinema as an oppositional force? What or whom does cinema need to resist or stand against? And what exactly does this resistance imply? Does it entail stubbornness by remaining in place or the confidence to push ahead? In the latter case, one cannot fail to ask: Where to? Is it not when the answer to this question remains unclear that one is confronted with what is perhaps the most critical question of all: For whom? And perhaps more importantly: With whom?
In collaboration with KASK and HISK.
