Cinema's Choice: REX Bern

Film art and cinema culture in all its facets: This is what the traditional 50es cinema REX in Bern stands for. It was reopened in 2015 as an urban meeting place. REX shows thematic selections and retros in combination with art house premieres in two venues, cultural events in the REX bar and video art in the REX Box. To bridge the dreary time without cinema, REX presents here a small selection of premiere films from previous programmes.

«A lot of things are a matter of point of view, some are illusions, and what we call habits of seeing is what prevents a more comprehensive view of things. Markus Raetz did let us experience this trough his works in a playful and amusing way. Movement characterizes his art. This moves us on - even after his death.»
