The 32nd BIFF kicks off with the 17th cooperation with the Braunschweig State Orchestra. BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN was for Walter Benjamin a good example of tendential art: ”This film is ideologically concrete-lined, perfectly calculated in all its details like a bridge arch. The stronger the blows crash down, the better it roars. For if someone knocks on it with gloved fingers, then he will neither hear or move anything.” Since Edmund Meisel, (1926), the film has been musically interpreted again and again. Yati Durant reconciles in his music score the form language of the avant-guard with that of new music and expands a large orchestra cleverly with electronic passages. Supported by: Staatsorchester Braunschweig, Murnau Gesellschaft, Stiftung Braunschweigischer Kulturbesitz, Stadt Braunschweig.
