Director: Marion Hütter, colour, 89 Min., 2011
We are happy to invite you to the next installment of the ArtHouse Cinema program on Tuesday, the 26th of January 2016. This time we will screen the film called Dichter und Kämpfer (Poets and Fighter)
directed by Marion Hütter
It has to be self-written texts. Props and costumes are taboo on stage, Beatboxing is aloud.
Between subculture and mainstream: Poetry-Slam is becoming more and more popular in Germany - young poets compete each other on stage. Highlight of the year is the German championship – the greatest festival of the stage-literature in Europe. Dichter und Kämpfer
accompanies four young stars of the Poetryslam-scene during their journeys and performances. It is a document of extraordinary literary passions.
While following the four young celebrities, the film puts focus on their talents and ideals and their individual expectations upon their carrier and future. The movie captures moments, rather than showing chronological procedures.
Arthouse Cinema is the regular film program of the Goethe-Institut. Every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month we screen independent movies, avant-garde movies, retrospectives, experimental films or documentary films from Europe and Indonesia – anything but the mainstream.
