Sentimental Punk

TWO soundtracks. ONE film. Every 11th of the month, Sentimental Punk screens a selection of structuralist and avant-garde filmmakers. Once a month Sentimental Punk invites 2 sound artists to improvise live to the films. Sentimental Punk is a non-commercial research meeting. It is curated by Dafne Narvaez Berlfein with support from Willem van den Hoek, Santiago Doljanin, Christina Ertl-Shirley, Amirali Ghasemi, Julia Brunner, Stefan Endewardt, Julia Herfurth & the Kotti Shop community.
