This programme, a series of films and one installation focusing on the diverse ways in which cinema deals with the past and history’s losers, takes its inspiration from film history as well as the IFFR tradition. The inclusion of The Mummy and Geschichtsunterricht, both presented in the second edition of the festival in 1973, shows that as a subject, it is nothing new under the sun.
