Rétrospective is Jérôme Bel’s subjective reflection on his own work. He chose eighteen dance fragments from his video archive. Through meticulous editing, he has used them to reconstruct the development of his thinking about dance. By emphasizing the links between dance and politics, he foregrounds central themes in his work. After the film screening, there will be an extended conversation with the choreographer.

Inspired by an old map of the Middle East – which clearly shows how many cross-border train connections there once were, Dictaphone Group went on a research mission along the entirely disused railway network in modern-day Lebanon. Nothing to Declare is about the meaning of borders within Lebanon, borders with the neighbouring countries and borders in the Arab world.

Chaghig Arzoumanian is 27, but could just as well be a thousand years old. In a voice-over, she talks about her family history, and the accumulation of names, stories, journeys and photos that were handed down to her fragmentarily. In this film, she roots her Armenian heritage in today’s landscape.

The magisterial Life and Times epic is approaching its conclusion. The life story of Kristin Worrall is continuing in two films, combined into a marathon screening. Episode 7 pays tribute to Citizen Kane and the conventions of Hollywood’s black and white films. Episode 8 takes an entirely different direction, as a Cinemascope colour film with wide, uninterrupted shots. No prior knowledge is necessary: a cinematic newsflash-like introduction will concisely summarize the story so far.
