Aaron wants to become a family with his girlfriend and her 8-year-old son, but high up in the Italian Dolomites, his attempts to win the boy’s acceptance turn into a dangerous power game.
Aaron invites his girlfriend Lea and her 8-year-old son Tristan on a trip to the mountains. What could be a starting point of a new life together, slowly turns into difficult territory, as the three fight for their positions within the new family. High up in the Three Peaks region in the Italian Dolomites, Aaron and Tristan are faced with their ambivalent love for and deepest fears of one another, while Lea stands in between the two, trying to navigate this triangle. In his attempt to win the boy’s acceptance, Aaron takes him up the mountain and confronts Tristan with his continuous aggression towards him. When fog sets in and Aaron loses the boy, their power games reach a dangerous level…

In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art­-lover James Lord is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees.
So begins not only the story of a touching and offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, a uniquely revealing insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process.
FINAL PORTRAIT is a bewitching portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity. It is a film which shines a light on the artistic process itself, by turns exhilarating, exasperating and bewildering, questioning whether the gift of a great artist is a blessing or a curse.

Agnese and Stefano are profoundly different. She is only seventeen, lives with her mother, a harsh and religious woman, and is about to take a vow of chastity before marriage. He is twenty-five, has a violent temper and a difficult past behind. He works as a security guard in a car park bordering a camp of Roma. Their unexpected meeting engenders a true sentiment, made of little stolen moments and mutual help. As their desire grows, Agnese is devastated by what she perceives as a betrayal of her ideals, and she takes an extreme decision in the hope of erasing her committed sin.

Premiere of “The Full Version” May 19, 2017 – Cannes Classics

Palme d’or-winning unfinished “YOL” is 35 years later still Turkey’s most important film and with its topics more contemporary than ever. Finally, it has been restored and completed for the occasion of Yilmaz Güney’s 80th birthday this year.
“YOL – The Full Version” honors what the great actor, author, director, producer and prisoner wasn’t free to complete during his lifetime. It presents on the screen the entire content of the script that Yilmaz Güney wrote in prison. Thanks to intense research, film material that was thought lost was found, digitised and edited according to Yilmaz Güney’s original editing plan. Image and sound have been accurately restored to their authentic condition. “YOL – The Full Version” recounts, as in Yilmaz Güney’s original script, six, rather than five stories about Turkish and Kurdish prisoners. Each of them attempts to get his life back on track during a week’s leave from prison. For 35 years, the fate of these men and their wives have moved audiences around the world. “YOL – The Full Version” is a piece of Turkish-Kurdish film history that is more contemporary than ever. The work is a timeless portrait of an archaic society whose concepts of honor and moral compass are the downfall of men and women alike.

Centaur is a quiet, small and modest man, a loving father of a little boy that has never spoken a word and the husband of young, deaf-mute Maripa. Together they lead a simple life in a small village of Kyrgyzstan. Centaur is above all a respected man among his neighbors, a man beyond any suspicion, but he has a belief deeply rooted inside him. He still believes that Kyrgyz people once united and invincible thanks to their horses, have been punished by Heavens for misusing that power to achieve their mercenary goals.

Beyond any suspicion, Centaur becomes a horse thief, as he thinks only a genuine racer riding at night and praying for forgiveness can write off the curse. But his well-hidden secret cannot be kept for long. When the truth shines, he will need to decide the destiny of his family, co-villagers and his own.

distribution PROKINO

World Premiere February 11, 2017 – Competition (out of Competition)

German Release August 3, 2017 by Prokino distribution

Stanley Tucci, dem Zuschauer als hervorragender Schauspieler aus unzähligen Filmen wie „Die Tribute von Panem“, „Der Teufel trägt Prada“ oder „Spotlight“ bekannt, machte sich mit „The Impostors – Zwei Hochstapler in Not“ oder „Blind Date“ auch hinter der Kamera längst einen Namen. Sein Regiedebüt „Big Night – Nacht der Genüsse“ (deutscher Kinostart 1997) war Inspiration und Auftakt der seit 2007 etablierten Berlinale-Reihe „Kulinarisches Kino“. Nun wird Tucci mit der Weltpremiere von FINAL PORTRAIT den diesjährigen Wettbewerb aufmischen und während er sich bei diesem Projekt ganz auf seine Arbeit als Regisseur und Drehbuchautor konzentriert, hat er als Darsteller Geoffrey Rush und Armie Hammer im Gepäck.
Während einer Parisreise im Jahr 1964 wird der junge Schriftsteller und Kunstliebhaber James Lord von seinem Freund gefragt, ob er ihm für ein Porträt Modell sitzen würde. Geschmeichelt und fasziniert sagt er zu, denn es handelt sich dabei um niemand geringeren als Alberto Giacometti. Doch Lord hat keine Ahnung worauf er sich da eingelassen hat. Schon bald erhält der junge Amerikaner Einblicke in den faszinierenden, intensiven, wunderschönen und stellenweise völlig chaotischen und irritierenden Schaffensprozess des weltbekannten Künstlers. Das Bild will nicht fertig werden, und aus Tagen werden Wochen. Termine werden verschoben, weil der Meister gerade nicht in Stimmung ist, oder lieber bei Rotwein im Bistro sitzt, als seiner Kunst nachzugehen. Weil er ganze Gesichtszüge wieder übermalt, oder gar absolut an seinem Werk zweifelt. Oder erst einmal Konflikte zwischen Ehefrau und Geliebter gelöst werden müssen…
Regisseur Stanley Tucci überzeugt mit einem faszinierenden Spielfilm über einen der wichtigsten Künstler der Moderne, eine ungewöhnliche Männerfreundschaft und den durchaus komödiantischen Entstehungsprozess eines Werks. Oscar®-Preisträger Geoffrey Rush („The King’s Speech – Die Rede des Königs“, „Shine – der Weg ins Licht“) ist großartig in der Rolle des Alberto Giacometti. Ebenso beeindruckend sind Armie Hammer („The Social Network“, „Lone Ranger“) als Freund und „Modell“, sowie Clémence Poésy („Plötzlich Papa“) als Giacomettis Geliebte und Sylvie Testud („La vie en rose“) als seine Ehefrau.

Silver Berlinale Bear for best director to Aki Kaurismäki

“The paths of a Syrian refugee and a Finnish travelling salesman cross in the asphalt jungle called Helsinki.” (Aki Kaurismäki)

The film consists of two stories that by chance intersect at the forty-minute mark. The first one is about Khaled, a young Syrian refugee who has lost virtually all of his family. Almost by accident, he drifts to Helsinki as a stowaway passenger on a collier to seek asylum without great hopes for his future life.

Wikström, the other protagonist, is a travelling salesman of about fifty (representing mainly men’s shirts and ties). In the beginning of the film he leaves his alcoholic wife and his profession and turns momentarily into a poker shark. With the small amount of money he thus gains he then buys an unprofitable restaurant at the far end of an inner court along a back street in Helsinki.

When the authorities decide to return Khaled to the ruins of Aleppo he, just like many others, decides to stay illegally in the country and disappears into the streets of Helsinki. There he meets, besides various types of racism, also pure kindness. Finally Wikström finds our fellow sleeping in the inner yard of his restaurant. Perhaps he sees something of himself in the battered man because he hires Khaled as a cleaner and a dishwasher.

For a moment life shows us its sunnier side, but fate soon intervenes and the film concludes with an open ending leading either to a respectable life or to the cemetery. For a person driven into a corner, both have their merits.

Michal is 32 years old. She became religious 12 years ago, and only now is she getting married. A month before the wedding, while checking out the catering for the event, the groom has a change of heart and the wedding is called off.
Michal feels she’s unable to go back to ordinary life, to the usual course of matchmaking. She feels this is the moment to change something very basic in her personality. A simple belief that God is good and sweet; that He wants to give and is only waiting for her to wish it. Michal goes on a month-long journey up to the planned wedding day: “I have the venue, the dress, the apartment; God can easily come up with my groom”.

THROUGH THE WALL is a dramatic romantic comedy by Rama Burshtein, director of „Fill the Void“ (Venice 2012).

World Premiere Sundance Filmfestival 2016

playing in Germany since July 28, 2016 distributed by PROKINO

Wiener-Dog tells several stories featuring people who find their life inspired or changed by one particular dachshund, who seems to be spreading a certain kind of comfort and joy. Man’s best friend starts out teaching a young boy some contorted life lessons before being taken in by a compassionate vet tech named Dawn Wiener. Dawn reunites with someone from her past and sets off on a road trip picking up some depressed mariachis along the way. Wiener-Dog then encounters a floundering film professor, as well as an embittered elderly woman and her needy granddaughter—all longing for something more.

Twenty years ago, Todd Solondz took the Sundance Film Festival by storm when Welcome to the Dollhouse won the Grand Jury Prize at the 1996 Festival. Since then he has gone on to establish himself as one of the most uncompromising voices working in film. Wiener-Dog is vintage Solondz, brimming with brilliantly caustic and truthful observations about the human condition. He has a unique ability to find humor in the darkest of subject matter, allowing an empathetic light to shine on it.

Good people. Good people who think they deserve some too. Good people in a bad world. Good people in the middle of their journey. In the middle of life. Between the city and the hills. This is the story of one family, helplessly caught in the web of dark, twisted, impossible forces that govern life in Israel.

David is discharged from the army after serving for twenty seven years. He returns to his home and family after being distanced from them for years, and tries to find himself in his new civilian life. He believes that, like his friends who retired from the military before him, he too will find his way in some managerial position in the private sector, but he has difficulties adapting to the pace of the “new Israel”, a competitive culture obsessed with success and money. More often than not, he finds himself alone at home, watching a morning show on TV or listening to the radio. When a friend suggests working for a company that markets dietary supplements, David sees this as an opportunity to get his foot into the door of the business world and make something of himself. But this decision slowly gets him and his family entangled in the web of dark forces that rule life in Israel.

In 1930, looking for suitable material for his first sound film, star director Fritz Lang, leaving his turbulent environement behind, travels from Berlin to Duesseldorf to witness the investigations about the brutal serial murderer Peter Kuerten, headed by famous detective chief inspector Gennat.
However, in the unfamiliar surrounding he is soon caught up in a maelstrom of events from his past, and faces unexpected demons: his own, and those in all of us. We are drawn into the middle of the tense and frightening story of Fritz Lang’s world-famous film classic “M – a city looking for a murderer“.
Fritz Lang, creator of masterpieces like “Die Nibelungen” and “Metropolis”, was one of the greatest directors in film history and a brilliant film artist. But equally, though, a man possessed, a man driven, in whose films fears, secrets and unknown abysses are revealed: both his own, and those of the audience. Based on real people and events, award-winning director Gordian Maugg tells the story of Fritz Lang and the genesis of “M”.

In Portugal — a European country in crisis — a film director proposes to build fictional stories from the miserable reality he is immersed in. However, failing to find meaning in his work, he cowardly runs away and leaves the beautiful Scheherazade to stand in his shoes. She will require enthusiasm and courage so as not to bore the King with sad stories of this country. As nights go past, restlessness leads to desolation and in turn to enchantment!

Guillaume Nicloux’s output has spanned experimental cinema (LES ENFANTS VOLANTS, LA VIE CREVÉE), a noir triptych (A PRIVATE AFFAIR, HANGING OFFENSE, THE KEY), offbeat comedy (LE POULPE, HOLIDAY), political film (THE GORDJI AFFAIR), and drama (HAPPINESS IS NO JOKE, LA REINE DES CONNES), together forming a dense and personal body of work. THE NUN and THE KIDNAPPING OF MICHEL HOUELLEBECQ, which both screened at the Berlin Film Festival, were no exceptions. VALLEY OF LOVE, filmed in the United States with Gérard Depardieu and Isabelle Huppert, is his fifteenth film. Guillaume Nicloux is a novelist and has taught at the Fémis film school for the past 10 years.

Ever since the worldwide success of “The Sound of Music,” the Trapp family has become familiar to fans of films and musicals around the world. Awarded five Oscars®, the film is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and is one of the most successful productions of all times. Based on the autobiography of Agathe von Trapp, the eldest daughter, THE TRAPP FAMILY – A LIFE OF MUSIC now tells the story behind the legend.

THE TRAPP FAMILY – A LIFE OF MUSIC tells the fascinating and exciting story of Agathe von Trapp (Eliza Hope Bennett), who has been searching for her path in life since her youth: She is the eldest daughter among many siblings, and her relationship with her father, the distinguished marine officer Georg von Trapp (Matthew Macfadyen) and his second wife Maria von Trapp (Yvonne Catterfeld), is often difficult. She develops her beautiful voice and stimulating musical talent together with her family and with the support of the famous singer Lotte Lehmann (opera singer Annette Dasch). She constantly struggles for the love of her childhood sweetheart Sigi (Johannes Nussbaum) and, not least, she must confront the menacing political and social constellations and the rise of fascism in Germany and Austria. Emigration to the U.S. finally brings a decisive step toward freedom and world success.
How Agathe von Trapp found and shaped her own life, with empathy and commitment, emotionally and courageously; how she took up every challenge and never let go of her dream; how she faced problems and ultimately went her own way – this is what Agathe (Rosemary Harris) reports many years later in the new American home of her young niece who, just like her, has reached a crossroads and must take important decisions.

VON CALIGARI ZU HITLER (FROM CALIGARI TO HITLER)

written and directed by RUEDIGER SUCHSLAND
produced by MARTINA HAUBRICH, Looks Filmproduktionen GmbH
featuring VOLKER SCHLOENDORFF, FATIH AKIN, ELISABETH BRONFEN, THOMAS ELSAESSER, ERIC D. WEITZ
World Premiere on August 28, 2014 – Venice Film Festival Classics

playing in Germany since May 28, 2015 distributed by Real Fiction Filmverleih

Siegfried Kracauer described the german „Weimar Republic“ (1918 – 1933) in his famous film book „From Caligari to Hitler“. He writes about shellshock-trauma, fear, crisis, and the longings for a leader in german films – in other words: the way in which cinema presaged the era of fascism, anticipated its terror, and the moral and political collapse of a liberal society. What does cinema know that we don’t know?
Investigating this question, and tracing the diversity and beauty of early filmmaking, the film by Ruediger Suchsland shows that Weimar cinema is more than ever an unknown continent still to be discovered. Far more than expressionism, it was „new sobriety“, escapist spectacle, thrill and fun – and it looked into the eye of crisis. “Von Caligari zu Hitler” is an entertaining rollercoaster-ride to one of the best periods of German cinema and into the abyss of subconsciousness.

In Portugal – one European country in crisis – a film director proposes to build fictional stories from the miserable reality he is immersed in. However, failing to find meaning in his work, he cowardly runs away and leaves the beautiful Scheherazade to stand in his shoes. She will require enthusiasm and courage so as not to bore the King with sad stories of this country. As nights go past, restlessness leads to desolation and in turn to enchantment. Therefore Scheherazade organises the stories she tells the King in three volumes. She begins like this: “It hath reached me, O auspicious King, that in a sad country among all countries…”.

Despite the Mother Superior’s scepticism, Sister Marguerite, a young nun, takes this «wild little animal» under her wing and does everything she can to bring her out of her darkness. She will succeed, in spite of some failures and the temptation of discouragement, armed with her joyous faith and love for young Marie.

LA TRATTATIVA (THE STATE-MAFIA PACT)

Official Selection out of competition

directed by SABINA GUZZANTI
producers VALERIO DE PAOLIS / SABINA GUZZANTI
world sales The Match Factory

What do we mean when we talk about “The State – Mafia Pact”? About the concessions given on behalf of the State to the Mafia in exchange for an end to bloodshed? Who exactly is culpable for the assassination of Falcone and Borsellino? What do we know about the endless coexistence of Mafia and Politics? Between the Mafia and the Catholic Church? Between the Mafia and the Police? Or is there more?
A group of actors bring to life the most relevant episodes of the sequence of events known as “The State – Mafia Pact” (Trattativa Stato – Mafia) that is supposed to reveal the truth about alle- ged negotiations between the Italian government and the Mafia. The actors impersonate Mafia, secret service agents, other officials, magistrates, victims, assassins, freemasons, people who are honest and brave and people who are brave up to a point… And so one of the most intricate events of our time is brought to life in this passionate film.
