Presented at:
Hallwalls

NOW AGAIN THE PAST film series, programmed in conjunction with the Carnegie Art Center's exhibition (February 11-March 18)

$7 general, $5 students/seniors, $4 members

THE INEXTINGUISHABLE FIRE
by Harun Farocki (30 min., 1969)

WHAT FAROCKI TAUGHT
by Jill Godmilow (32 min., 1997)

Godmilow's remake highlights the original's content and conjures an additional layer of commentary on the art and practice of documentary filmmaking.
