WHERE

We are living in a dangerously fast changing world. The Covid pandemic; international crises; nationalist tendencies everywhere. But the biggest challenge of the future will be climate change. We all have to make decisions about our own future, and the future of humanity. In this documentary film, we will ask two questions: 1. Where are we going? 2. How can change happen?

ANGST

This documentary film (2020, 83 Mins.) is about the German disease ANGST. We all know the armored man, the choleric father, the right-wing grandfather, a strange uncle. Some of us know of their sudden violence, others of their beatings. The film "ANGST" shows the origin and the effects of the traumas of the past (with Klaus Theweleit, author of 'Male Fantasies').

Der Dokumentarfilm "ANGST - Mein Vati und ich" (2020, 83 Minuten) handelt vom seelisch gepanzerten Mann, dem cholerischen Vater, den rechtsgerichteten Großvater, den merkwürdigen Onkel. Viele kennen deren Gewalttätigkeit und manche die Prügel, die Ohnmacht und die Angst vor diesen Menschen. Der Film zeigt Herkunft und Auswirkungen dieser Angst und ermöglicht damit die Auseinandersetzung mit den Traumata der Vergangenheit (mit Klaus Theweleit, 'Männerphantasien').

Blue Note - A Story of Modern Jazz

directed by Julian Benedikt

"It must 'schwing!" was the motto of Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff, two German Jewish immigrants who in 1939 set up Blue Note Records, the jazz label that was home to such greats as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon and Sonny Rollins. Blue Note, the most successful movie ever made about jazz, is a testimony to the passion and vision of these two men and certainly swings like the propulsive sounds that made their label so famous. The only documentary about the legendary Jazz record label includes original footage from concert recordings by Blue Note label artists, original footage of Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff and interviews with Carlos Santana, Rudy Van Gelder, Horace Silver, Herbie Hancock among others.
