BLACK_BOX_BRD_1

Black Box BRD

University of Edinburgh/Goethe Institut
Sun 11 May 2014
19:30 - 21:55 (1 hour 25 mins)

Black Box BRD (2001) is a double portrait of a victim and suspected perpetrator. Director Andres Veiel has an enduring interest in the violence of the Red Army Faction, the left-wing terrorist movement that emerged in West Germany in the 1970s. In this documentary he focuses not on its most sensational attacks, but on its after-shocks, felt long after the deaths of Ulrike Meinhof, Andreas Baader and Gudrun Ensslin.

Kick_01

The Kick

University of Edinburgh/Goethe Institut
Fri 13 May 2014
19:30 - 22:00 (2.5 hours)

In 2002, a 16-year-old boy was brutally murdered in the village of Potzlow, north of Berlin. The media quickly dismissed the crime as the consequence of right-wing extremism and socio-economic deprivation in the area, but director Andres Veiel wanted to find out more. The Kick uses official reports and personal interviews to open a more nuanced perspective on the event. Unflinching and unflinchingly human, Veiel’s film confronts us with uncomfortable truths that relate to us all.
