Every Saturday afternoon, the DFF offers a public tour of the special exhibition CATASTROPHE. What comes after the end?
The focus of DFF’s current temporary exhibition is on disaster films. It is dedicated to cinematic as well as real-life disasters, especially against the background of the “climate catastrophe”. How do filmmakers, on the one hand, and scientists, on the other, imagine the worst possible scenario in different times? What rescue possibilities do they see? How likely are the film plots?
The audience will follow the stages of the classic disaster film – from the first warning signals to the outbreak of the catastrophe and the following rescue efforts of those affected to the final rescue with the prospect of a new beginning. On view alongside film clips are objects from the filmmaking process, from storyboards to set designs to movie posters. The cinematic images are juxtaposed with reality in the form of objects, journals, and interviews with scientists.
The public guided tour is included in the exhibition admission.
Meeting point: 3rd floor
