Comrade, where are you today?

#

INFO

Director Kirsi Marie Liimatainen came to East Germany in 1988 to study at the East Berlin Free German Youth High School "Wilhelm Pieck". 24 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Kirsi seeks out her fellow students who came from all over the world to learn the theory and practice of Marxism and Leninism. The students were politically active, freedom fighters, leftist activists, united in their hopes for a better world - but in reality, they experienced the conflicted socialism of East Germany. The director travels to Nicaragua, South Africa, Chile, Bolivia, Lebanon, Germany and Finland as she tries to find out what has become of those old ideas of a more equal society, and where those activists and dreamers are now.

El Viaje

#

INFO

Als Mitglied der legendären deutschen Band Die Ärzte ist Bassist, Sänger und Komponist Rodrigo Gonzalez bundesweit berühmt geworden. Nun möchte der gebürtige Chilene mehr über seine südamerikanische Heimat und vor allem über ihre Musik erfahren. 1974 floh er mit nur sechs Jahren mit seiner Familie vor der Militärdiktatur von Augusto Pinochet nach Hamburg. Die damalige Protestmusik der Chilenen wurde zum Soundtrack einer ganzen Generation, die auf den Straßen des Landes für mehr Menschenrechte und gegen den Diktator demonstrierte. Rod beschäftigten die Lieder in Deutschland – für die Doku „Viaje“ kehrt er zurück in das Land, das er einst hinter sich ließ. Sein Ziel: Mit den Protestsängern von damals und ihren künstlerischen Erben von heute ein gemeinsames Musikalbum aufnehmen...

#

INFO

1980 im tiefsten Süden von Spanien: Der junge Kriminalbeamte Pedro (Raúl Arévalo) ist wenig begeistert, als er aus der Hauptstadt ins verschlafene Örtchen Villafranco del Guadalquivir versetzt wird. Hier teilt man ihm als Kollegen den ebenfalls aus Madrid stammenden Juan (Javier Gutiérrez) zu, den Pedro auf Anhieb nicht leiden kann. Doch für Meinungsverschiedenheiten bleibt keine Zeit, denn die Pflicht ruft: Zwei Schwestern im Teenageralter sind verschwunden und während der mürrische Vater (Antonio de la Torre) der Kinder wenig Anstalten macht, die Polizisten bei ihrer Suche nach den Vermissten zu unterstützen, leistet immerhin die eingeschüchterte Mutter (Nerea Barros) ein wenig Hilfe. Als dann eine weitere junge Frau verschwindet, wird den Ermittlern langsam klar, dass sie es hier nicht mit harmlosen Ausreißerinnen zu tun haben, sondern womöglich mit einer Mordserie...

The documentary captures life on the Italian island of Lampedusa, a frontline in the European migrant crisis. Situated some 200km off Italy’s southern coast, Lampedusa has hit world headlines in recent years as the first port of call for hundreds of thousands of African and Middle Eastern migrants hoping to make a new life in Europe. Rosi spent months living on the Mediterranean island, capturing its history, culture and the current everyday reality of its 6,000-strong local population as hundreds of migrants land on its shores on a weekly basis. The resulting documentary focuses on 12-year-old Samuele, a local boy who loves to hunt with his slingshot and spend time on land even though he hails from a culture steeped in the sea.

GENRE@EISZEIT: Noir – Sonatine, Wednesday

#

INFO

Takeshi Kitano’s Yakuza movies are laconic masterpieces with a weird sense of humor, and SONATINE is the most laconic and most beautiful of them all. SONATINE takes us into a cold world, where violence is just a matter of fact, signifying nothing. There is a war between two gangs, never mind why. Yakuza Lieutenant Murakama is on one of these last missions, a suicide commando, and finally ends up on a beach, where he and his buddies pass the time with funny and dangerous games. Murakama says he’s not afraid to die, because death would at least end his fear of death, which is making his life not worth living. Joe Hisaishi’s iconic soundtrack, the icy atmosphere that later switches to all-out silliness, the sudden eruptions of violence and Takeshi Kitano’s stone face: just a few reasons, why SONATINE is essential viewing

GENRE@EISZEIT: Horror – The Thing, Friday

#

INFO

The Crew of an American research station sees a Norwegian helicopter pursuing a dog. When the helicopter crashes, the only survivor tries to shoot the dog with a rifle, hitting one of the Americans. The American commander kills the apparently mad stranger and the crew adopts the dog. Not a good idea, as they soon find out. John Carpenter’s 1982 remake of the Howard Hawks/Christian Nyby classic THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD (1951) was criticized at its release for actually showing the parasitic monster that threatens the crew of the arctic outpost. Since then Carpenter’s THE THING has turned into a classic, with its claustrophobic atmosphere, gorgeous cinematography and beautifully grotesque stop-motion animation.

Original version.

GENRE@EISZEIT: Wildcard – The Endless Summer, Sunday

#

INFO

Sundays is our „wildcard“, where we show basically whatever we want, as long as it is fun and entertaining. We start out with Bruce Brown’s seminal documentary THE ENDLESS SUMMER (1966), the mother of all surf and summer movies. Brown’s amazing shots of waves, surfers and the sea are so spectacular it makes you wonder how they were possible with the equipment of fifty years ago, especially since it had to be carried halfway around the world not to mention on a surf board. Brown’s chilled out commentary does occasionally slip into sexist (bikinis!! omg!!!) and colonialist (the natives this or that) slurs typical for the time, but mainly he is interested in waves, water temperature and pure fun.

Original version.

Dates: 7.8./14.8./21.8./28.8.

El Olivo - The Olive Tree OmU

#

INFO

Alma’s family has been producing quality olive oil in the Baix Maestrat area of Spain’s Castellón for generations. Yet changing pressures in the industry have made their traditional practices economically untenable, and the family is now in the mass-production poultry business.

Alma’s grandfather has not spoken in years. Sadness envelopes him, and he no longer wants to eat. His sons—Alma’s father and uncle—are impatient with him, but Alma understands her grandfather. She realizes he has been grieving for a thousand-year-old olive tree that the family has uprooted and sold to pay some debts. (A sadly common reality in Castellón at present.) Unable to bear the idea that her grandfather could die without seeing this terrible wrong corrected, Alma undertakes a quixotic mission to locate the tree and return it to the family orchard, so that her grandfather may have peace in his final days.

INFO

Jeanne and Jean are happy newlyweds in a rural village. Their idyll is promptly shattered when Jeanne, on her wedding night, is raped in a ritual deflowering by the local baron and his lackeys. She returns to Jean terrified and in pain, and he calms her, saying, "Let us forget everything in the past". At first broken by the experience, Jeanne eventually vows revenge, with the help of a pact with the devil, who appears to her in explicitly phallic form and grows larger the more Jeanne submits to him. As Jeanne grows more and more powerful, she poses a threat to both the village lord and its priest, who seems to always be beside him. Jean seems progressively weaker in contrast to Jeanne, succumbing to drink and excess. The men grow weaker as she grows stronger, until she becomes a powerful witch and must be taken down.
