“The Movement of Ideas” is the first comprehensive screening of all films by Oliver Ressler. Since 2000, Ressler has created 15 films, which all will be presented at Cinema Dynamo, a cinema space initiated by Andrea Bellini, the new director of the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève, Switzerland.

The philosopher Alain Badiou writes: “We have to overturn the old verdict that would have us believe we are living in the age of the ‘end of ideologies’. We can now see quite clearly that the only reality behind their so-called ‘end’ is ‘Save the banks’. Nothing could be more important than rediscovering the passion for ideas, or than contrasting the world as it is with a general hypothesis, with the certainty that we can create a very different order of things. We will contrast the wicked spectacle of capitalism with the real of peoples, with the lives of peoples and the movement of ideas.” (The Communist Hypothesis, 2010)
