6 p.m. – 7 p.m.

HALMASPIEL Trailer – Betina Kuntzsch, Vimeo

Zoom talk with director Betina Kuntzsch incl. screening of her film HALMASPIEL (BRD 2017, animation, 14 min).

Betina Kuntzsch collages and animates her mother's life story associatively. She was an enthusiastic player of Chinese chequers and a gifted fashion designer. The filmmaker combines both to create a loving and tender family portrait that at the same time tells a lot about German-German history. A story that leads from life under National Socialism, from the air raids and the division to the united Germany. A story that tells of painful losses and new beginnings, of repressing and coming to terms, of the memory that is necessary to understand the present.
