Heal the Living
With “Columbus” by Kogonada
Synchronised breathing in the dark of the cinema can have a therapeutic effect, and it is no coincidence that injury and healing – the miracle of regenerating bodies and souls – has been a central motif throughout cinematic history. Diese Auswahl von sechs Filmen, deren Titel an den französischen Film Réparer les vivants (Die Lebenden reparieren) angelehnt ist, bewegt sich zwischen diesen Polen.

Columbus (Kogonada, USA 2017), English, 19:00
In Columbus, 19-year-old Casey cares for her mother, who is recovering from a crystal meth addiction. She lives in Columbus, Indiana, a medium-sized city that is a mecca for architecture lovers thanks to its modernist buildings (by architects such as I.M. Pei, Eero Saarinen and Robert Venturi). One day she meets Jin, a South Korean translator who is visiting his terminally ill father, a former professor of architecture. Together they wander through the city.
