Film history as print history
In the biography of a film print there are often coincidences and peculiaritiesthat have little to do with the film itself but have decisivelyshaped its reception history. With this in mind, the re-selected project,begun in 2018 and headed by Tobias Hering, is dedicated to the Oberhausen archive. One of three programmes in 2019 is devoted to earlyfilms by elimir ilnik, which caused a sensation in Oberhausen andwhose archived prints bear witness to how being shown or not shownbecame a political issue and films became secret messages. elimirilnik will be present.
