Short Film Program

Transformationsraum Stadt

Halle (Saale)

Werkleitz short film program from June 23 to July 6, An der Marienkirche, in the Gebetstübchen on the south side of the market church Unser Lieben Frauen in Halle.

As part of the activation of the historic Gebetstübchen (small prayer rooms) as cultural meeting places in the center of the city of Halle, Werkleitz is showing three short films. Transformationsraum Stadt presents cinematic works from different times and places and explores the transformation of urban space - politically and ideologically.

The opening night takes place on 23 June 2022, 7:00 p.m. . The introduction by Daniel Herrmann (director Werkleitz) will be followed by a screening of all the films in the program. The film Wahlkampf 1932 (Letzte Wahl) will be shown only on that occasion.

Ella Bergmann Michel: Wahlkampf 1932 (Letzte Wahl), DE 1932, silent, approx. 13 min.
