SynopsisDAS KINO SIND WIR tells the story of cinema as social sculpture using the example of the Filmladen Kassel. In the early 1980s ten young film freaks started as a grassroots initiative – to change the world with (political) film art, increasingly by women too, to intervene in the social discussion, to make it more open, more equal and greener. Four decades later commercialisation, the digital revolution and the pandemic have changed cinema. In a collage of film clips, interviews and archive material, significant filmmakers and the cinema team explore questions about the meaning and future of engaged cinema culture.
