24 February 2017: Masquerade

Panicker’s one-act play deals with the relation of identification between an actor and his or her role. Aravindan put the stress on the relations between the viewer and the actor/role dualities. The action takes place on the eve of the last act of the Kathakali piece Keechakavadham (The Killing of Keechaka). In southern India, with its plethora of politicians using their film images to acquire inordinate wealth and power, Aravindan’s TV film bears on an eminently sensitive political as well as aesthetic issue.

26 February 2017: Oliver Ressler: Everything Under Control

In most cases an occupation is not a deliberate step towards workers' control but a means of workers' struggle against the closure of a production site or company or the relocation of production to another country. Occupy, Resist, Produce focuses on the rare, better organized cases where the purpose of the struggle is to bring production under workers’ control.

8 March 2017: Concrete Futures

Presented by Sheffield Fringe, Concrete Futures brings together films that deal with fiction and imagination, inviting encounters with speculative futures, which are nonetheless grafted onto the present, 'documentary' moment that haunts them. Moreover, through the use of images as documents and as drivers of the imagination, Serbian, Rwandan and Spanish cityscapes are connected in a type of speculative haunting.
