The European Refugee Crisis: Havarie and the Art of Slow Cinema
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema (2550 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94110) 6:00PM-8:45PM, October 13, 2017
Moderator: Nilgun Bayraktar
Participants: Merle Kröger, Philip Scheffner
Goethe-Institut San Francisco presents a reading with Merle Kröger (Radio Bremen Crime Novel Award 2015 / German Crime Novel Award 2016) and a film screening with Philip Scheffner in collaboration with the Litquake Festival and the Center for the Art of Translation.
Inspired by a short cellphone video of a raft of refugees, shot by a tourist from the deck of a cruise ship, Merle Kröger and Philip Scheffner created both a feature film and a novel, Havarie (Collision). Scheffner’s film loops the original clip into a haunting 90-minute “slow cinema” hallucination and meditation on the nature of refugees, while Kröger’s book unspools a crime story from the same collection of characters. Kröger reads from her book, followed by a screening of Havarie, and then an onstage discussion with both Kröger and Scheffner. Moderated by CCA film professor Nilgun Bayraktar. (LitQuake 2017)
