Film series at the Filmzentrum im Rechbauerkino.
Just like the previous events of the screening program this fourth evening, too, attracted a broad audience.
The Exploitation of the affective desires for the ‘Good Life’ and the intersections of gender, aging, migration and care work are the main focus of the Japanese film “Plan 75” from 2022, presented on Mar. 16th, 2023.
In order to socio-politically contextualize a few thematic aspects of this dystopic film from the viewpoint of Cultural and Aging Studies, the screening was followed by an expert discussion with Prof. Ulla Kriebernegg from the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Aging and Care (CIRAC)and Prof. Franz Winter from the Department of Religious Studies.
The discussion reflected upon critical perspectives on intergenerational relations, images of aging and cultural representations of geronticide in late-capitalist societies – topics explicitly depicted in the film.
Next date of the film series:
16, March 2023: Cloudburst (Canada/USA 2011)
The event is a cooperation of the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Aging and Care (CIRAC) and the Center for Southeast European Studies (CSES).
The CareAgeCinema cinema series is a cooperation of the Age and Care Research Group Graz, the Elisabeth List Fellowship Project "Gender Matters: Aging, Care, and Migration," and Radio Helsinki 92.6 - Freies Radio Graz at the Filmzentrum im Rechbauerkino.
