25 FPS Festival in Rijeka

For the ninth year in a row 25 FPS Festival is present at the Art-kino Rijeka with a two-day programme. Tuesday 27/09 is reserved for the latest feature film Freedom from Everything by Mike Hoolboom, with an online Q&A with the filmmaker. Wednesday 28/09 will show two programs of this year's selection.

Freedom from Everything is a personal film essay about two pandemics: AIDS and Coronavirus. Body memorials, survivor stories, remembrances. Both plagues are reframed by neoliberalism and its central mythology of personal freedom, brilliantly laid out in Hito Steyerl’s essay gem Freedom from Everything which is adapted and shapeshifted here. Pronouncing on the new precarity of the freelancer, Hito wryly observes that they have “freedom from everything,” from a good job, health care, affordable housing… Featuring Maggie Thatcher, Guy Fawkes, George Michael, James Baldwin, Akira Kurosawa and David Wojnarowicz.

Q&A with Mike Hoolboom is hosted by Marija Katalinić.
