Transcaucasian movie night 07.12.15!

To bring to a close Transkaukazja’s 2015 programme in Germany we finally took a focus on moving pictures. In Kino Thalia Dresden at 07.12.15, curator Uwe Penckert presented short movies from Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. All movies of this fine selection from the extensive archive of our partners from GeoAIR have dealt with arts and freedom of speech and, by this, follow our 2015th topic “Art as the Key to Freedom”. After the presentation curator and audience have used the possibilities for a discussion.
