“Shooting Ourselves” by Christine Cynn
June 23 @ 18:00 - 19:30
SHOOTING OURSELVES (Norway, Denmark, Germany, 2016, 87 min), directed by Christine Cynn
SHOOTING OURSELVES was filmed entirely on the Berlin set of ‘Situation Rooms’, a show by German theatre legends, Rimini Protokoll, who are frequent visitors at the Goethe-Institut Toronto. Last year, the Luminato Festival in partnership with the Goethe-Institut presented this award-winning multi-player video installation to a sold-out house.
Featuring a rare ensemble of people whose lives are intimately connected to weapons, SHOOTING OURSELVES is set against a backdrop of increasing global violence. The protagonists came to dramatize their personal experiences – from underground missile factories to the most highly contested borders of the world. They create a new type of immersive theatre where audience members play roles guided by films on handheld devices.
