Late Summer Cinema at the Kulturschlachthof Documentary Special "War Whispering"

Special planned for our festival – now shown in cooperation with the Kulturschlachthof Jena

Initially, we planned the programme "War Whispering" to be shown during the 21st International cellu l'art Short Film Festival in April 2020. Unfortunately, the festival had to be rescheduled like many other events (and we are still working for the festival to take place at an alternative date). We now are happy to present you part of our festival programme in cooperation with the Kulturschlachthof Jena.

About our Programme

War is not only a matter of front lines – the battles often prolong themselves into the living room. In the short films we are going to show you, the soft tones are more important than the big battles: they will be about the impact of armed conflicts which are not visible on a first glance. Five selected short documentaries will show the consequences of war on individual everyday life.

Venue & Admittance

Kulturschlachthof, Fritz-Winkler-Straße 2b, 07743 Jena
Barrier-free sanitary facilities and driveway to the premise are guaranteed.!
The projection will take place open-air: it might get cold in the evening, so we advice to take warm clothes or blankets. Stay at home if you suffer from typical Covid 19 symptoms or from cold symptoms! The local hygiene regulations apply.
Entry: 7.00 - 7.30 pm
Donation recommendation: 2-4 €

Note of Thanks
