Four Parts of a Folding Screen
Documentary: UK (2018)
Directors: Anthea Kennedy, Ian Wiblin
Running time: 83 mins
Languages: German with English subtitles
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.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the directors, Anthea Kennedy and Ian Wiblin.
Doors open at 5.45pm for a 6pm start.
Screenings are free and welcome to all. To guarantee a place please come early, as seats are allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
