KINO FOTOGRAFIC: HOLIDAYS AT ANY COST
15. 9. at 7 pm / entry voluntary
As part of the accompanying program to the exhibition of Lois Hechenblaikner, which focuses on mapping the impact of tourism on the Austrian Alps, we have prepared a selection of short films exploring the phenomenon of mass tourism from various angles. From crowded Barcelona and angry citizens in Venice, to obscure cruise ships or emptied resorts in post-revolutionary Tunisia, to artificial hills in Latvia.

A workout on the sun deck, a conga line in the dining hall, a photo shoot with the captain, or a beauty contest for all ages: fun around-the-clock is guaranteed on a cruise. The visual essay All Inclusive offers an exclusive insight into the bowels and program of one typical cruise ship.
Laila Pakalniņa, 2008, Latvia, 34min
