Berlinale Spotlight: 50 Years of the Forum in New York in December

collage-forum-pm-nov-2020_RWD_775.jpg

For many years, the Berlinale has been present all around the world with its specially curated programmes. The Berlinale Spotlight series serves to extend the period of the festival and makes the activities of the Berlinale visible throughout the year.

In December, the series travels to New York, where the German Film Office, an initiative of German Films and the Goethe-Institut New York, and Arsenal – Institute for Film and Video Art are presenting a selection taken from this year’s Berlinale Forum anniversary programme. Together with the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Berlinale Forum has put together six programmes entitled “Comes the Revolution: The Berlinale Forum at 50”, which can be seen online on the website of the Goethe-Institut at https://www.goethe.de/prj/gfo/en/index.html from December 14 to 20.

The Berlinale Forum is devoted to cinema that explores new, radical paths in form and content. In February 2020, the Forum celebrated turning 50 by bringing its very first edition from 1971 back to the big screen. After taking its first bow during the 70th Berlinale, the anniversary programme has since made its way to Hong Kong, Lisbon and Brussels, and will travel on to Recife, Brazil, as part of a collaboration with the “Janela Internacional de Cinema” festival. It will be soon be making a stop in New York: six film programmes selected by the Berlinale Forum together with the Museum of Modern Art will be available online from December 14 to 20, with an online panel discussion to be held on December 18 with Josh Siegel, film curator at MoMA, director Rosa von Praunheim and Cristina Nord, head of the Berlinale Forum.

Works will be shown from 1961 to 1971 by directors such as Chris Marker, Med Hondo, Sarah Maldoror, Rosa von Praunheim and Helke Sander. They explore the tectonic shifts of the late 60s – whether on the streets, at universities and factories or in the bedroom. A desire for artistic experimentation meets political militancy, just as agitprop rubs up against avantgarde formal languages. The filmmakers try out collective production processes, with their subjects ranging from the American Civil Rights Movement via the second Women’s Movement and anti-colonial struggles to new forms of labour organisation.

Watching these films half a century later also implies asking what they achieved and where they went astray. They have lost nothing of their urgency. The Black Lives Matter protests from earlier this year showed, for example, how the injustices of the late 60s have barely been overcome. En passant, “Comes the Revolution: The Berlinale Forum at 50” thus also provides inspiration and strategies for grappling with the present.
