Can Dialectics Break Bricks Cinema: Touch of Evil (1958)

20150201_Touch_of_Evil

Sunday February 1st 2015, Can Dialectics Break Bricks Cinema by Jeffrey Babcock: Touch of Evil (1958). Directed by Orson Welles, 111 minutes. In English with English subtitles. This will be a high-definition screening. Door opens at 8pm, film begins at 9pm. Free admission.


Many consider this movie to be the true masterpiece of Orson Welles' career. Taken away from him and sliced to ribbons by the studios, the history of this movie has always been a sad tale. In recent years there has been an attempt to reconstruct this gem to its original vision, and the result of these efforts is the version we will be screening.

This is Welles' riveting film noir, a crime thriller about a creepy and corrupt police chief named Hank Quinlan (played by Wells himself) working on the Mexican border. When a narcotics investigator (Charlton Heston) arrives to investigate a crime, instead of things becoming clearer they only become murkier. The 3 minute opening shot alone is legendary in film history, and after that the film continues to shoot off and plunge the viewer into a wild, mysterious, unknown world. Also starring Zsa Zsa Gabor, Marlene Dietrich and Janet Leigh. The black and white cinematography is piercing, complimented by a haunting musical score by Henry Mancini.

Film night at Joe’s Garage, cozy cinema! Doors open at 8pm, film begins at 9pm, free entrance. You want to play a movie, let us know: joe [at] squat [dot] net

KSU-Oost Vind je het onredelijk dat er met jouw grondrecht op veilig onderdak geen rekening gehouden wordt ? Ben je boos omdat spekulanten van de woningnood profiteren en de overheid maar doet alsof haar neus bloedt?
Ondanks het feit dat in Nederland kraken verboden is, gaat het toch gewoon door. Voor mensen die actief voor het recht op wonen optreden is onderlinge hulp vanzelfsprekend. Gezien de reden om te kraken, namelijk het maatschappelijke probleem woningnood, treden krakers in het algemeen dan ook als een soort bond naar buiten. Bij de voorbereiding van een kraakactie, bij de kraakactie zelf en bij het behouden en onderhouden van een kraakpand is er altijd advies een steun van andere krakers. Mensen gaan je graag en bijna onvoorwaardelijk ter zijde staan, maar het initiatief moet je zelf nemen en de uiteindelijke keuzes moet je zelf maken. In de praktijk houdt dat in dat je zelf een leegstaand huis moet weten te vinden, zelf moet uitzoeken waarom en hoe lang het leegstaat, zelf je woongroep moet samen stellen en zelf uiteindelijk daar moet wonen. Uiteraard kan je op praktische hulp rekenen zolang jezelf een duidelijk plan maakt en de uitvoering daarvan coordineert.

Als deze aanpak je geschikt lijkt om zelf iets aan je eigen woningnood en aan de woningnood in het algemeen te doen, kom dan langs op het kraak spreekuur elke dinsdag in Joe's Garage vanaf 20u

Documentary: Black Box BRD (2001)

Black_Box_BRD

Sunday February 8th 2015: Black Box BRD, documentary by Andres Veiel, 2001, 102 minutes. In German with English subtitles. Door opens at 8pm, film begins at 9pm. Free admission.

This documentary by German filmmaker Andres Veiel takes a look back at German politics of the '70s and '80s, a troubled era when the government was engaged in a war against the leftist movement known as the Red Army Fraction. The conflict is addressed by focusing on the lives and deaths of two men whose fates became tragically intertwined in 1989. Alfred Herrenhausen was a high-ranking member of the Deutsche Bank who was killed by a Red Army Fraction bomb attack. Wolfgang Grams, a radical activist, was a major suspect in the attack. Four years later, he was tracked down by police and killed. Through interviews with relatives, friends, and colleagues of both men, a clear picture of the times emerges. While the film makes no attempts to place blame or assign guilt, it does raise many questions about German politics today.

De Vloek Benefit, Solivoku, infonight and live music with Shireen and Sprank
20150209_de_Vloek_benefit

Monday February 9th 2015, De Vloek Benefit, Solivoku, infonight and live music with Shireen (crisis-folk) and Sprank (political folk klezmer punk trio), Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. Music from 8:30 till 10pm.


"Hell no, we won't go! De Vloek moet blijven!" De Vloek, squatted autonomous social center in Scheveningen, [http://devloek.nl/] existing since 2002, is threatened to follow the same fate as De Blauwe Aanslag in 2003. The city of Den Haag who hates squatters and put all its energy to criminalize them, has nonetheless postponed the eviction until the beginning of April 2015. Since the plans of the city to flatten the Vloek came public, actions and demonstrations took over. A symbol of a failure for the city, De Pier, was occupied for few hours last August. From Den Haag till Greece, solidarity banners popped up. Other militant actions took place, spontaneous demonstration, occupation of the city council. The mayor even forbade a demonstration beginning of December. During the Action Days at the end of the year, people took again the streets and a former tax office building owned by the city was squatted and in no time illegally evicted by the riot police, 40 activists were arrested.

Be on time for the food! On the stage, Shireen and Sprank [https://sprankband.wordpress.com], from 8:30 till 10pm.
Shireen plays Crisis Folk! "I made up the name 'Crisis Folk' to give a name to the type of songs that I like to sing. Many crises manifest themselves in the traditional folk-songs that I like to borrow, like excessive drinking, poverty and violence.
Alongside these songs, I sing about other, more contemporary crises. About Europe becoming more and more like a fortress with the ever increasing border controls and violent repression of the 'sans-papiers' and 'no border' activists. Or the damage that is done to ecosystems in search of profit. Of course these are love songs too. As you cannot fight without loving.
Lately I have been playing my music on the streets of many different countries on my slow travels back to Europe from South East Asia, making up a few new songs on the way."

Kurdish Iranian new wave cinema: The Songs of My Mothers Land - Marooned in Iraq

Marooned_in_Iraq

Sunday February 15th 2015, Kurdish Iranian new wave cinema: The Songs of My Mothers Land - Marooned in Iraq. آوازهای سرزمین مادری‌ام‎ (گم‌گشتگی در عراق) by Bahman Ghobadi, 2002, 108 minutes. In Kurdish and Persian with English subtitles. Door opens at 8pm, film begins at 9pm. Free admission.


Synopsis: In Iran and Iraq’s postwar years, when Iraq bombs its Kurdistan, an old Iranian Kurd singer, accompanied by his musician sons, start searching for his ex-wife Hanareh. Hanareh, a women singer, has gone to Kurdistan in Iraq. The film is the story of the band’s journey, joined with their music. It is the story of a nation that has always been wandering. Being so used to war, they take it as a game and with their music they celebrate life.

Many years ago before our memories were clouded by the moments of heroic bravery at the hangman’s alter which will, for many Arabs, go on to posthumously defining Saddam Hussein, there were innumerable mass graves, gassed victims, orphaned children and menacing jet fighters roaring in the Kurd skies that reminded people of what Saddam stood for.

Bahman Ghobadi’s “Songs of my motherland” (also known as ‘Marooned in Iraq’) is not just a tale of Mirza the legendary Kurd singer but an epic of his people. As Mirza sets out to seek his rebellious ex-wife, Henareh, a belle who has captured the hearts of the people through her voice and her songs, we are introduced to the nuances and shades of the people of the region.

The Kurds are as rugged as their inhospitable landscape locked between the Arab, Turkish and Iranian nationalists who are willing to forcefully suppress anyone that questions their territorial integrity with calls for a Kurdistan. Yet through the eccentric tribal mannerisms of the Kurdish people and their scant regard for authority the movie reveals the trait of natural defiance comfortably adjusted to a cruel fate that the Kurds have had.

The journey of Mirza with his two sons, the bachelor Barat and Oudeh with seven wives and counting (until one of them produces a son), is of the opposite direction to the flow of the refugees leaving the Iraqi side to avoid the devastating aerial shelling and chemical gas attacks. They meet caravans of distraught Kurds running for cover, others digging for mass graves to identify their massacred kin, and amidst the chaos an isolated school nestled in the mountains with hundreds of orphaned children. Yet Mirza treads on disregarding any advice in his mission to find out why Henareh, the symbolic voice of the Kurds, beckoned him.

Ghobadi’s use of non-actors for the roles may at times end up being disjointed, but the erratic and impetuous nature fluctuating between violent outbursts and an impulsive acceptance of songs, dance and love present a people who refuse to be defined by their misery. Women are symbolically shown as builders and constructors as well as the hope for survival resolute in their determination.

This movie is important as much for its frank introduction of the Kurdish people as it is for remembering the horrors unleashed upon them by a man whose name in the film is preferably attached with a curse (“God damn Saddam!” and “May God destroy Saddam and kill his sons!”) by the displaced Kurds, revealing a defiance that betrays their suppressed and exiled-from-life condition.

While the power of a mobile phone clip of Saddam’s hanging may potentially water down his image as a brutal dictator, the message of this movie will affirm to us that justice took a long time in coming. Such as for Henareh who loses her voice and beauty in the chemical gas attacks.
