Mann Beißt Hund: Screening And Q&A Performance says
Screening and Q&A Performance
Saturday, April 30, 3–5pm
Innis College room 222, University of Toronto
2 Sussex Avenue

The screening of Stine Marie Jacobsen's feature length film, Mann beißt Hund (2015) will be followed by discussion. FREE, all welcome. Seating is limited, please arrive on time.

As Charlotte Lalou Rousseau writes, "Stine Marie Jacobsen's Mann beißt Hund (2015) is a remake of the Belgian film C’est arrivé près de chez vous (translated as Man Bites Dog, 1992) devoid of human presence...the work foregrounds articulations of structural, symbolic, and physical violence. Jacobsen conceptualized Mann beiβt Hund in Belgium in 2013, concurrently with protests against poorly written legislations of public space and their abusive misuse by government officers. Belgian citizens saw C’est arrivé près de chez vous – a mockumentary following a serial killer’s daily routine – as an illustration of the dangerous slippage from individual discretionary power to collective social disaster."
