Film presentation »The Sun Island«

How can a suitcase with letters, a handful of poems and a tin can of small films be used to reconstruct an extraordinary family history of the 20th century? In his essay film "The Sun Island", film historian Thomas Elsaesser revives the spirit of the break-up and upheaval of the late 1920s and early 1930s in Frankfurt and Berlin using personal film materials and letter fragments. In cooperation with the Werkbund Hessen.
