Public Screening #05: Ingo Kratisch: Logik des Gefühls, January 11, 2018, Arsenal
January 11, 2018
Arsenal, Kino 2
At the 12th International Forum of New Cinema in 1982, Ingo Kratisch was represented by two films – as a cameraman on Harun Farocki’s “Etwas wird sichtbar” (Before your Eyes – Vietnam) and as director and editor of LOGIK DES GEFÜHLS (Logic of Emotion) (Screenplay: Jutta Sartory). In a poetic text, Cäzilia Gall writes: “The main protagonist is Georg, lovesick, for whom there is nothing more to portray. People, whom he meets. They are like extras on the empty planks of his heart: ‘The Traveller’, ‘The Poet’, ‘The Lover’, ‘The Gambler’, ‘The Deranged One’, ‘The Man in the Port’ and others. And the plot: “What happens? Nothing much. […] Where is it set? In an in-between space, between lost love and a coming love. Winter. Berlin. 1981. Anna has separated from Georg. Silence.”
Starring Farocki as “The Deranged One”.

Brought to our attention by Derek Gregory via his resourceful Geographical Imaginations blog: an open call for contributions to the “Corona Notebooks” of Warscapes, a recommended independent online magazine “that provides a lens into current conflicts across the world.” Warscapes is looking for short, 2-3 minute videos “of yourself thinking about this pandemic, maybe accessing a previous memory, maybe reporting on an injustice, maybe narrating a sweet fragment from your daily life, maybe recounting a second chance that this pandemic gave you, maybe telling us about a loved one you reconnected with, maybe you’ve seen a movie or read a book that was powerful, maybe telling us about having the illness. The tone, the tale, the genre and the language is yours to choose. There is an overwhelming amount of news and information but we will together weave an emotionally vibrant and artistic tapestry.”
