Film Screening: Johan Grimonprez

28 July 2018

Acclaimed Belgian filmmaker Johan Grimonprez introduces his latest film Blue Orchids (2017, 48min). It offers portraits of experts situated at opposite poles of the global arms trade: Chris Hedges (former New York Times war correspondent) and Riccardo Privitera (former arms dealer). One dedicated his life to unmasking lies; the other built his life on them. Grimonprez's film Dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y (1997, 68min) features in Iconography of Revolt.

Warning Blue Orchids contains violent imagery, sexual references, and disturbing themes. Not suitable for children.
