Unfair x Kriterion
As a sneak preview for the upcoming art show, Unfair collaborated with Kriterion to develop a special screening program. For a series of three Unfair x Kriterion screenings, we invited Unfair artists to screen a film that is somehow connected to their creative process and the themes they address in their work. To make it even better: the artists will be present at the screening and elaborate on their choice of film during an introduction.
Hard To Be A God
