So you think you’re a radical activist. But do you have any idea what your parents were up to when they were your age?
Join us for a screening of the new film from by Schwarzer Hahn, a radical film collective from Berlin, Germany. Post-film discussion with the filmmakers about independent filmmaking and radical activism in today’s world.
Climate change, refugees locked up in detention camps, endless wars and the rise of the far right – enough shit to get angry about. But apart from a few half-arsed protests, nothing happens. Jenny and her friends decide to take action. But as the state starts coming down on the group, Jenny’s dad is confronted with his own militant past and has to take sides. The meaning of code name “Jenny” becomes ever more blurred. Where is the line between resistance and terrorism?
Subversive. Feminist. Anarchistic. Cross-generational. CODENAME: JENNY is a film about two generations and their activism.
