FILM PROGRAMME

3 - 24 September 2017: Close-Up on Ruth Beckermann


Close-Up presents the first UK retrospective on the films of Ruth Beckermann, curated and introduced by Colm McAuliffe. Beckermann has been creating essay films and documentaries for 40 years and is well known internationally as one of Austria’s most courageous and spirited filmmakers. This programme explores the work of a director equally suspicious of closed narrative forms and linear views of history and memory. We're pleased to have Ruth Beckermann here in person throughout the Missing Images and East of War programmes on Sunday 3 September 2017.
