2015 – Jugendfilmklub

For several times now I've been hired by a youth film club in Neustrelitz to talk about specific films the teenagers had chosen (e.g. Her or Nightmare Before Christmas). The movies are screened in a proper cinema with little introduction and afterwards I promote a dialogue between members of the audience and aim for the expression of opinions or thoughts as well as a dignifying and sensitive approach to artistic decisions. I focus perspectives and attentions trying to open up minds and hope to be able to take the experience of watching and understanding films among the spectators to a new level. For these sessions I tend to do a lot of research in the Deutsche Kinemathek and read as much as possible about developing, producing, shooting and reception of the respective movie.
