Kino-Atlas 1. L.A. Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema
In Person: Michael Robinson

June 26 to July 18, 2015

From June 26 through July 18, Vienna’s most beloved Open Air cinema – „Kino unter Sternen“ (Cinema Under the Stars) – will once again take place at Karlsplatz. The Austrian Film Museum is partnering with the organizers on the special program – „Doppelgänger“ – concentrating on films by exile filmmakers. Among the selected films are Dead Ringer (1964, Paul Henreid), To Be or Not to Be (1942, Ernst Lubitsch), Oh… Rosalinda!! (1955, Powell / Pressburger), and The Dark Mirror (1946, Robert Siodmak). Another focus dwells on apocalyptic visions and features films about individual dead ends as well as global catastrophes. A special evening will be dedicated to the memory of Austrian filmmaker Florian Flicker (1965–2014).[...]
