IFFF revisited: AND THE IMAGE GAZES BACK with films by belit sağ

Short film program at the IFFF Dortmund+Cologne with films by belit sağ – curated by Cana Bilir-Meier

The film artist Cana Bilir-Meier dedicates this program to the artist belit sağ. With her films, sağ pursues a media archeology of the power of images. In her short films she asks many questions: Can a picture capture a soul? Can I monitor someone by taking his/her picture? How does censorship affect speaking? belit sağ thinks about the effect of the images of conflict and violence. 10 short films with titles like Eylül – Ekim 2015, Cizre / Sept.-Oct. 2015, Cizre, geriya kalanlar / What remains, Ayhan ve ben / Ayhan and me.

>>Cana Bilir-Meier and belit sağ are guests in Dortmund for a film talk.

The archive program »IFFF revisited« dives into the treasures of the more than 30-year-old festival and presents groundbreaking films by women* that are still highly topical today. By resorting to the archive, it is possible to re-emphasize themes and aspects that may have been overlooked in the past and thus to make connections in the history of emancipation and film where none (visibly) previously were.
