Themroc today

«Renters in Berlin have a radical plan to seize apartments from landlords and are set to force a referendum that could revolutionize the battle for fair rent.» «In a city where around 85% of residents live in rented accommodation, and where more than 200,000 publicly owned apartments have been sold off since 1990 to private equity firms and hedge funds, the issue has taken on acute significance. » «The housing market in Paris is absurd because you can’t find any affordable housing. But that’s an evolution we see in Berlin as well. The rising rents don’t correspond anymore to wages, and that’s something we want to address.» A petition started in February for a referendum on the plan has already collected 130,000 signatures, meaning there is a very real possibility that Berlin authorities will be forced to hold a referendum on the subject in September.

Los próximos 14 y 17 de julio, Themroc despliega toda su vitalidad y actualidad en la Filmoteca de Catalunya en el ciclo de Michel Piccoli.


15 de julio de 2021. For me the best of the list is Yoshida’s Eros+Massacre, and I find missing Riff Raff (Loach), Themroc (I hope they include it in the upcoming cycle of the Barcelona Cinematheque on Miche Piccoli) and, mainly, If (Anderson)… but of course, I’m not to fond of lists 😉 Great Anarchist Movies that Are Worth your Time.
