internet content. christiane fire has run our house cinemas in munich for years he also lobbies on behalf of more than $300.00 cinema operators and they are angry they say netflix is breaking the golden rule that films are made 1st and foremost for the cinema and are shown exclusively on movie screens for at least 4 months after release and only then are they shown on t.v. or streaming services netflix puts its productions online 2 weeks after they're in theaters and many theater operators see that as an existential threat. but not all of them are taking part in the boycott a few munich cinemas are screening the netflix productions like the irishman although it had been available on netflix for 2 months by the time of this screening many moviegoers deliberately chose to see it on the big screen. it's the same at the cinema run by. while his colleagues say they won't show netflix

productions out of a love of cinema he shows them because he loves cinema. the government from front on from the beginning i intended to run the cinema the way i wanted to and to show films that i want to see on the big screen and that my audience wants to see i have lovely big screens in my theatres and then there's a film like the irishman which has images that work well and leave a strong impression when shown on a big screen i think it would be absurd not to show it in a movie theater. read it for me for the trip sort. of its newest cinema was recently chosen as the best in bavaria he says cinemas will survive not because it's the only way to see movies but because it's the best way to see the. bard college mark krueger joins me now we've seen the opinion differing opinions from 2 cinema owners but what about what about the people who make the movies

whether they're making movies for hollywood or the streaming services want to very think well i think they just think what great because that means more contracts new possibilities of course the streaming services make quick decisions they are willing to take risks and of course the filmmakers left of course especially in germany there are very rigid structures and if a director wants to make a movie for example for a very young audience there are a few rules and more possibilities and well even harder with the people are just following the money this is a good show even marty scorsese for example the only way to realize that i was from and what the corporation for that flakes hollywood wouldn't give him the money so he did he made the dia and on the other hand it was very important for him that this film was also shown in the cinemas because he said please please please don't look at it please because this is. something the filmmakers also have to deal with

and these streaming services seem to have sort of you know huge budgets seem to be unstoppable and they are aggressively looking at new markets as well they phoned one of course in india they trying to reach new consumers there in that country and there in india we see those pictures of people watching movies. on their phones which scorsese is so afraid of. markets with its $1400000000.00 population and countless film fans but there's also this great competition there already dozens of subscription subscription streaming service isn't in yet so netflix and amazon are offering more for less money than in the west so it should be very a very golden age for entertainment in india and it's the fastest growing market right now briefly don't like to mention it but i guess the coronavirus isn't helping cinemas right now the virus is making a very hard time for the cinema people are just staying at home watching netflix

generational trauma that continues to influence artists to this day all of the works in the exhibition deal with racism in some way whether directly or indirectly the artists themselves are wary of being labeled as making black art but at the same time identity is a topic that keeps a rising for instance in the pictures of a lawless self from new york. striking car launches arresting and challenging. the fame of body is my main subject i think partially mostly because of the body which i have it so it's been it's been a way for me to speak very very sincerely about and i don't i mean. i also used to be in our body and also with the racialized body to kind of speak about larger humanistic concerns or accidental concerns. the object of our looks back at us with
