In conjunction with the MAK Center’s Garage Exchange Vienna-Los Angeles at the Mackey Garage Top, the Goethe Institute on Wilshire Boulevard presented a talk and a screening revolving around the film Cold Rehearsal (2013) by Constanze Ruhm and Christine Lang.

Cold Rehearsal is an experimental narrative film that is referential on all levels, including its text and storytelling, its sound and music, its framing, acting, and props. It relates explicitly and implicitly to film history and theory, to narrative forms and conventions of modernist cinema. In a presentation complementing the exhibition at the MAK Center, Ruhm and Lang introduced their sources and references with an artistic, feminist perspective, in order to re-appropriate, update, and rewrite film history.
