Five Wednesdays in September and October

The House of European History invites you to a series of movie screenings around the temporary exhibition ‘Restless Youth- Growing Up in Europe, 1945 to Now’.

Travel back in time to experience a daring film that was influential at the time for each generation highlighted in the Temporary Exhibition. The films summon five different environments in four different unique periods across the continent in which young people grew up and made decisions that formed their identity.

The film will be contextualized and commented on by film historian and curator Wouter Hessels, who will highlight the significance of the film in cinematographic history and link it with the temporary exhibition. For the last screening, ‘Home’, the director of the film Fien Troch will come in person to give insights on the movie making process and discuss the representation of young people today.
