3 Films by Harun Farocki

8.30 p.m.
Kino Světozor
Vodičkova 41
Prague, Czech Republic


One need not look for new, as yet unseen images, but one must work with existing ones in such a way that they become new. (Harun Farocki, 1988)

This programme puts together three films from Harun Farocki’s extensive production during the last forty years, starting with a single channel version of a video installation from mid-nineties and going back to one of his first films, dated 1969. In spite of their formal differences they all represent forms of analytical methods, of film as a tool for researching image structures as well as the society in which they operate.

Introduced by Helena Holmberg

Moghrabis latest film, Avenge but One of My Two Eyes, deepens into a politically charged reflection on suicide in Jewish myth and history. This documentary lets the tragic parallels between Jewish mythical heroes who kill themselves rather than surrender and Palestinian suicide bombers speak for themselves. Along the way, it questions the value of using history and myth to stir up nationalist fervour.

One of the directors of the film is the boss of the gang, Laszlo Hudak, the other is Imre Lenart, a social worker and cultural anthropologist who were in close relationship with the members of the gang. Hudak did the creative side of the work, being the main source of ideas and properly directing the characters, while Lenart limited himself to organising the shootings and recording the scenes on video.
