STICS Summer School "Screening the Scars"

As part of the STICS summer school "Screening the Scars", the IPU, in collaboration with the Kant Kino Berlin, will show five films from 19-23 September 2022 that revolve around social trauma. After the films, talks and panels will be given, for which the films' directors are also present.

The film screenings will take place in the context of the STICS Summer School, which is organized and led at the IPU Berlin by Prof. Andreas Hamburger. For many years the networking project "Social Trauma in Changing Societies" (STICS) has brought together students and professors from Germany, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Turkey. You can find more information on the project here.
