EV 03 Michael Brynntrup: SUPER 8

Book presentation and film program

"One needs to have seen them," Wiglaf Droste wrote laconically in Germany's taz daily paper in 1986 about the "intimacy, immediacy and rapidly developed situational comedy" of Michael Brynntrup's Super-8 films. Across 400 pages, the filmmaker's new volume of images and text celebrates the magic of the Super-8 phenomenon. A mix between monographic show and independent opus, this "material book" (as Brynntrup himself refers to it) collages photos, graphic work and drawings, diary entries, reviews and film sketches. A dialogue between text and image, between yesterday and today – sensual, blasphemous, provocative and resolutely queer.

Introduction and book presentation are in German, the films are subtitled in English.
