Film Series: Four Parts of a Folding Screen

Welcome to 2020, to a new year of challenges, struggles and victories! In January, we commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day with another powerful, experimental documentary in the presence of the filmmakers: Anthea Kennedy and Ian Wiblin. Join us for the screening of Four Parts of a Folding Screen on Wednesday, 22 January, from 6pm at CCA. The entry is free, as always!

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.
