Perspectives of Isolation A Digital Film Night on August 6th & 7th 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic this Spring made us all live through a peculiar experience: we spent a few months in isolation. No matter if alone or with a family, if you liked it or loathed the whole world, this is something to tell your grandchildren about in a couple of decades. For most of us it lasted just for a while. However, there are people who find themselves in a lasting isolation, sometimes even life-long. Sect members, lonely widowers, residents of in the middle of nowhere or surreal worlds – no matter if by choice or against one’s will, these people can tell a lot about self-isolation – and now you have enough experience to understand and feel with them.
Our film night "Perspectives of Isolation" will take place online, and this is the perfect way – isolate yourself to watch our movie selection on our website.


Some films of this selection are only suitable for an adult audience.

The Video will be posted here from the 6 pm, 6 August, till 11.45 pm, 7 August


To finance film nights under the current circumstances, we would be glad about your support!
