Zollamt Cinema

Zollamt film series

In January 2013, ZOLLAMT started a cinema series based around the topic of “change”, in part a clear reference to the changes that the customs houses have undergone during the last year – from a former public institution with a control function into a house with cultural, artistic and in this sense transboundary activities and exhibitions.

The cinema in particular offers masterpieces that – in the broadest sense – deal with the subject of change, but which are usually only screened in larger cities at art house cinemas or on related television channels, sometimes late at night. ZOLLAMT aims to present a small but carefully selected range of cinematic specialities. The plan is to screen a film every 4 to 5 weeks.

Films shown so far:

#1: The Edge of Heaven (Fatih Akin), 23.1.2013 / 7 pm
#2: Le Havre (Aki Kaurismäki), 27.2.2013 / 7 pm
#3: Zelig (Woody Allen), 3.4.2013 / 7.30 pm
#4: Incendies (Denis Villeneuve), 8.5.2013 / 7.30 pm
