SAT. 11/18: SKOLLER ON HONG + BLOCKADE +
UCB film critic Jeffrey Skoller, personally explicates the major insights of his new book Shadows, Specters, Shards: Making History in Avant-Garde Film. He mobilizes critical concepts to frame a discussion about four movies—all premieres!—that narrate mid-20th century history through novel cinematic forms. Defending his 20-min. The De-Nazification of MH, James Hong will touch on issues of historical revisionism and political agency. Visiting from Berlin, Sylvia Schedelbauer also demonstrates, in her own way, a decidedly personal approach to historiography in the instance of her Memories, a stark encounter with her own family’s post-war story. Hito Steyerl’s November traces the radical passage of feminist filmmaker to Kurdish martyr. Grounding the program is Sergei Loznitza’s truly chilling Blockade, a 50-min. war-footage compilation from the siege of Leningrad, uncannily materialized as living experience through a tour-de-force Foley strategy.
