Bruno S.- Estrangement is death & Dead End

Zownir Film screening and discussion with the film director

June 20th 2013 at the ZKM_Lecture Hall, Lorenzstraße 19, Karlsruhe, 8 p.m.

For more than thirty years, photographer, writer and film director Miron Zownir has belonged to the most radical of present-day artists. He consistently confronts socially critical and taboo-breaking themes. After realizing eight short films in the U.S. as director and screenplay writer, he returned to Germany to make the anti-racist short film Auf offener Straße /SKINHEAD LANE in 1993.

Two of his films will be screened now at ZKM:

Miron Zownir dedicates the short film Dead End of 1992 to a group of young punk rockers from Pittsburgh, USA, whose lethargic boredom leads to bizarre sexual fantasies and a nightmarish death on a public street.

Bruno S. –ESTRANGEMENT IS DEATH is a documentary film of 2003, which highlights the life circumstances and past of Bruno S., born 1932 in Berlin. Having grown up in foster homes, psychiatric wards, and homeless shelters, he became known as Kasper Hauser in Werner Herzog’s Film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser (1975).
