Block 3: Kämpfen
“Human beings are human insofar as they bear witness to the inhuman.” This sentence by Giorgio Agamben indicates how the films in the programme of the Student Award are meant to be watched. The films portray bitter stories and moreover prove the feather light line, the personal and the peculiar side of life in the world that we live in.
VIOLENCE IS TO CHARGE 600 EUROS – PUBLIC LAND II

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO FIRE
Broad shoulders in a black anorak. A cart bearing a heavy load. As the yellow light of Turin breaks on the cobblestones of the Piazza della Repubblica, bodies and the camera are in constant movement. But the daily construction and dismantling of the market stalls is not enough to support a family. Then Peppino has a business idea.
