Acts & Intermissions. 2017. USA. Directed by Abigail Child. 57 min.

World premiere
Child’s experimental documentary circles around the life of Emma Goldman—viewed at the turn of the 20th century as the “most dangerous woman alive”—and her relationship to the history of protest. Goldman’s fight for social justice encompassed issues that remain urgent today, and the film’s overlapping of past and present highlights the continuing relevance of her struggle.

Kaputt (Broken). 2016. Germany. Directed by Alexander Lahl, Volker Schlecht. 7 min.

This animated doc, based on interviews with former political prisoners in East Germany’s main women’s prison, reveals the conditions of prisoners’ daily lives and confronts issues of forced labor and the export of the resulting products to West Germany.
