Thinking/Space with Ruth Beckermann

The newly created Thinking/Space that is devoted to open and in-depth exchange about cinema as a vision of our world is dedicated to the work of Ruth Beckermann. In her films, the film essayist captures the transience of time, memory and identity, orbits around her characters and themes, lets herself be guided by intuition and associations, and loves to be surprised. Her name stands for a reality-facing, politically sensitive cinema, far beyond the borders of Austria. Using excerpts from her unique films, and in conversation with Ruth Beckermann, Jean Perret (the long-time director of the Visions du réel film festival in Nyon and the head of the film department at HEAD in Geneva) explores the idiosyncrasies and dimensions of her work. The conversation will be held in German with simultaneous interpretation into English. After the event, Aesop invites you to a reception.
