Pirate Cinema Berlin presents: Short Psychogeographic Short Film Festival

Unlike most other terms that end in "geography", psychogeography was never a 
science, not even an art, and only rarely a concrete practice: that of drinking 
too much and then reapproriating small pockets of urban territory by means of 
unguided exploration. Psychogeographic cinema barely exists: Guy Debord made 
its two foundational non-films in the late 1950s, Patrick Keiller released two 
unlikely additions 20 years later. In between, two German films: as an obvious 
joke, as a document of psychogeography’s non-existing context, in order to help 
derail part of its narrative, but also to slighly widen the space across which 
these films, very clearly, speak to each other; in a language that is not, has 
never been, and will not be for the forseeable future, the language of cinema.
