Film Screening + Discussion: "Erde"

Green Visions Film Series

14.05.2020 18:00  – 20:00 

Location: Rio Filmpalast, Cinema 2, Rosenheimer Str. 46, 81669 Munich

Director: Nikolaus Geyrhalter, AT 2019, 115 minutes

The film will be shown in the original languages (English, Spanish, German, Italian, Hungarian) with German subtitles.

Several billion tons of earth are moved by humans every year with diggers, drills, or dynamite. In seven chapters, Nikolaus Geyrhalter takes us to mines, quarries, major construction sites, and coal mining areas in Europe and North America. There we see people in their constant efforts to subdue the planet and to appropriate its mineral resources: an analysis of homo faber as the primary cause of fundamental and irrevocable changes to the Earth.

A discussion in German with Martin Meiske, Deutsches Museum, will follow the screening.

Free and open to the public.

Reservations: Call 089 / 48 00 66-239 or register online. Reservations are only valid until 17:50.
