Revolution of the Present
Documentary, 2016 (digital release), by Marc Lafia
Originalfassung

This documentary analyzes why the opportunity to augment the scope of human action has become so atomized and diminished. Revolution of the Present is structured as an engaging dinner conversation, it is not a film of fear of the end time or accusation, it is an invitation to sit at the table and join an in depth conversation about our diverse and plural world. As Saskia Sassen, the renowned sociologist, states at the outset of the film, 'we live in a time of unsettlement, so much so that we are even questioning the notion of the global, which is healthy.' One could say that our film raises more questions than it answers, but this is our goal. Her research and writing focuses on globalization (including social, economic and political dimensions), immigration, global cities (including cities and terrorism), the new technologies, and changes within the liberal state that result from current transnational conditions. Saskia Sassen will be guest at the Grünen Akademie at the 19. of January 2017. The movie creates contentwise a relation.

Architektur In Serie zeigt Filme, die Architektur als Protagonisten verstehen. Es wird deutlich welchen atmosphärischen und inhaltlichen Einfluss der Raum auf Geschichte und Figuren hat. Diese Perspektive ist üblichen Filmen aus dem Genre Architekturfilm sehr unähnlich, da sie explizit nicht Architekt oder Werk in den Mittelpunkt stellt, sondern den Film als Narration und die Architektur als Träger und Vermittler dieser Narration betrachtet. 
Kuratiert von Claudia Gerhäußer und Franziska Hederer
