Perspectives of Struggle

About the 'History & Politics' Field

A wide scope of eras, aesthetics and geographies to offer a dream menu of films that, with their message, their form or their poetics, are political in nature and “brush history against its [too shiny] grain”, to borrow from Walter Benjamin. We offer a combination of well-known and more obscure filmmakers, very famous works and forgotten films, and our selection is driven by the desire to share cinema’s most beautiful moments with Tënk’s viewers.
