The author, artist and director Adnan Softić has previously worked as a professor for film and time based media at the HFBK Hamburg. His filmic works, which engage with historical constructions and ones committed to the politics of memory, were shown at Münchner Kammerspiele, Schauspielhaus Hamburg, KW Berlin, the International Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen and the Sarajevo Film Festival, among others. He was recently invited to the Villa Massimo scholarship in Rome. His film Bigger Than Life, in which Skopje’s invented past articulates itself in a historicist parade of sculptures, will be screened at Elbphilharmonie. The filmic opera will be introduced with a lecture performance by the director, while the screening will be followed by an open Q&A.
