In Paris Calligrammes, Ulrike Ottinger, who lived as a young painter in Paris in the 1960s, weaves her personal memories of the Parisian Bohemian scene and the era’s grave social, political, and cultural upheaval into a cinematic calligram. Diagonale’21 is screening the film as a continuation of the historical special “Sehnsucht 20/21—City and Desire.”
