The 2013 Carnegie Mellon International Film Festival: Faces of Media will showcase 2011 Austrian film, Abendland, on Wednesday, April 10, at 5pm at the McConomy Auditorium in CMU’s University Center! The event will also feature a discussion moderated by Neepa Majumdar, Associate Professor of English and Film Studies at Pitt!
Abendland takes us behind the scenes of European nightlife into a multitude of nighttime settings from a rave, to a hospital, to a porn-shoot, to an airport bathroom. Europe is presented as a fragmented yet cohesive whole, bound together by machine technology. Surveillance is the motif that ties together a variety of seemingly unrelated situations. The film is a self-reflexive collage examining the complex ways in which media communications help to ensure national security.
Presented in conjunction with “Goodman Faces of Work”.
Regular Admission*: $5 seniors and students | $8 general
* $3 discounted tickets for groups of 10 or more
