Beautiful like a burning TV

When Fassbinder, Wajda, Miéville & Godard used to make TV series

In the decade following the events of May 68, European television underwent a transformation. In France, Germany and Poland, TV turned to the tearaways of cinema and enabled them to pursue their research. Television soared and imagination took power.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the death of old-fashioned television, the 24th GIFF will present three rare TV series in their entirety, produced by major filmmakers of the 70s:

EIGHT HOURS DON’T MAKE A DAY
(ACHT STUNDEN SIND KEIN TAG – EINE FAMILIENSERIE)

by Rainer Werner Fassbinder

FRANCE/TOUR/DÉTOUR/DEUX/ENFANTS

by Anne-Marie Miéville et Jean-Luc Godard

AS YEARS GO BY, AS DAYS GO BY

(Z BIEGIEM LAT, Z BIEGIEM DNI)

by Andrzej Wajda

 

In association with cinema Spoutnik, TVP and INA.
