Pirate Cinema Berlin presents: Short Psychogeographic Short Film Festival

"Short" is the only term we can vouch for: If you can give it 100 minutes, 
you'll be good. But "Psychogeographic Film"? From all we can tell, no such 
thing exists; it's barely a rumor, not even a joke. The art of drinking too 
much and then leaving the bar ("psychogeography") has made no contribution to 
the story of film, other than the misleading name of a missing genre. Some see 
Guy Debord's early shorts as its foundation, but no-one who has seen them has 
seen more than its ruins; no-one would claim this is "film". And the rest is 
not "history", which is why our journey doesn't begin with an ethnographic 
study of Munich in the 1950s – that's already a detour – and why, when it comes 
to a sudden halt on a Berlin street corner in 1966, our voyage has barely 
begun. Fifteen years later, Patrick Keiller will pick up the camera in North 
West London; he won't do much with it, just enough to not leave any doubt. 
There is nothing to see here, unless you insist. And even though these six 
pieces clearly speak to each other, they do so in a language that is not, has 
never been, and will not be for the foreseeable future, the language of cinema.
