Movie screening: Darkest, deepest Austria
Sreda, 14. februar 2018 ob 19h
Join the next A.S.S. where we’re going to watch Darkest Deepest Austria (Dunkles, Rätselhaftes Österreich) directed by Austrian film-director Wippersberg. The mockumentary purports to be an episode of “Other Countries, Other Customs: Kayonga Kagame Shows Us The World,” a production of the fictitious All African Television network. Kayonga Kagame, the on-camera host ethnologist leads the audience into the darkest regions of the Eastern Alps and analyses the customs and activities of locals, such as the Oktoberfest, which becomes Christian ritual in his interpretation. The movie is a great satire of National Geographic documentaries, as well as a strong critics of the colonialist tendencies of European anthropology.
The movie will be followed by a discussion.
