Film screening ‘Four Parts of a Folding Screen’ at Birkbeck Cinema, London

Birkbeck Cinema, (Birkbeck, University of London), 43 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD

Notification of the screening of an essayistic documentary film, 'Four Parts of a Folding Screen', (Anthea Kennedy and Ian Wiblin, 83 mins., 2018), at Birkbeck Cinema, London:

Based on documents found in Berlin archives, 'Four Parts of a Folding Screen' explores exclusion, statelessness and the legalised theft and sale of everyday family possessions by the National Socialist regime. A voice, enigmatic and sometimes uncertain, foretells of, relates and recalls the routine processes of injustice and their legacy: the creation of a diaspora of household objects, scattered amongst buildings that no longer exist. As the camera probes the secrets of ordinary spaces, streets and buildings around the city of Berlin, semblances of a person and a history begin to emerge and coalesce.

Screening: 18.00, Friday, March 15th. This screening is in association with the Essay Film Festival and Insiders /Outsiders Festival and is the UK premiere of the film (which has been screened previously at film festivals in Rotterdam, Lisbon, Berlin and Helsinki). It will be followed by a Q&A with Monica Bohm-Duchen (Director, Insiders / Outsiders Festival) and the filmmakers.

This is a free event but booking is essential:
