March 11, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until May 28, 2016

IN THIS AMBITIOUS FEATURE-LENGTH FILM, GRACE EXAMINES THE RADICAL
LEFT-WING POLITICS OF GERMANY IN THE 1960S-70S, TAKING AN INTERVIEW
WITH A FORMER ACTIVIST AND TAXI DRIVER AS THE STARTING POINT.

The driver’s words and memories of his politically-active student
days form a dialogue that the artist weaves through a theatrical
setting, drawing on costumes, props and performers to question
political ideologies and to ask if we can truly be free. The film
examines the notion of freedom: how it was, and is understood, and
who, if anyone, can really access it.

Only a Free Individual Can Create a Free Society is commissioned by
FLAMIN Productions through Film London Artists’ Moving Image
Network; Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe; Eastside Projects,
Birmingham and The Showroom, London in association with Contemporary
Art Gallery, Vancouver; Institute of Contemporary Interdisciplinary

Fund, and Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
