Andrzej Zulawski’s Possession (1981)

A Film Club Screening and Conversation on Fantasy, Separation and Urban Planning. Hosted by Florian Wüst.

Andrzej Zulawski’s cult classic „Possession“, starring Isabelle Adjani and Sam Neill, is set against the background of the Berlin Wall as a symbol of a world in stagnation. The film combines family tragedy, thriller, and horror movie, and a cinematic tour-de-force through extreme emotional states of alienation. While Zulawski’s narrative successively slips from desire into obsession, from the real into the fantastic, his particular choice of locations represents tangible markers of Berlin’s urban history and various stages of city renewal.
