Three films Wednesday Nov 10th - Sunday Nov 14th
Maybe the people in the modern world are more than at any other point in history subject to constant change. We are expected to adapt to new technology, new societal structures and political ideas spreading faster than ever before. While we today in some sense might be uniquely subject to the force of change we are however not the first to deal with the issues and questions the movement of time entails.
From the ancient philosopher Parmenides, who claimed that time was an illusion, as it otherwise would have been impossible to ever know anything about the world, to Marx and Engels’ claim in the communist manifesto that capitalist society results in a state where “all that is solid turns into air, all that is sacred is profaned”, thinkers and artists have throughout history examined the concept of time. This semester the Filmklubben Sandgatan 8 explores this topic through three films that in their own ways portray humans dealing with a world changing around them.
Introductions before and discussions after the films. Dinner at 18.00 on Sunday, before the film - please join with something to share with others

Enter this space-time-story with all your senses. An exuberant, intense experience on the beauty of life threatened and mistreated, but still flourishing beneath.
