Film series 52 Views on Europe ends in December

The film series 52 Views on Europe, which has been running all year, will come to an end in December. The series, organised by Pirkanmaa Film Centre and Tampere Film Festival, has brought a diverse selection of new and older European films to the big screen. Over the past year, 52 Views on Europe has offered a chance to see cult classics such as Night Porter (1974) and Sátántangó (1994), silent film Nosferatu (1922) with live band accompaniment and this decade’s new films such as A Story of Bones (2022). The film series has also included short film series, dance films, documentaries and a National Theatre Live screening.

December’s films will be focusing on two European female artists. Hilma (2022), written and directed by Lasse Hallström, tells the story of Swedish abstract art pioneer Hilma af Klint (1862-1944), who only rose to prominence in the art world after her death. Lutz Pehnert’s documentary Bettina (2022) focuses on the life of German singer-songwriter Bettina Wegner. Film’s director and producer Susann Schimk will attend the screening.
