Artkeim²

Artkeim² is a label of UCM.ONE for very special films. They are bizarre, they make people think or break a taboo. Every film released on the label Artkeim² is special and absolutely worth seeing. Artheim-movies are Arthouse in the original sense.

The name Artkeim² consists of the two parts Art- for Art and -keim (“Keim” is the German name for “origin” or “embryo”). The “2 in the square” at the end  symbolizes the connection to the city of Mannheim and also includes a reference to the fact that Mannheim is also known as “Die Quadratenstadt” because of the blocks in the city center. The film label Artkeim², which in the meantime has settled in Berlin, was originally founded in Mannheim.

But beware: films for “casually look” or “watching on a sideline” are not on the label Artkeim². You should take the time to look at these cinematographic works in calm and to be on.

Édition ParaSol Videothèque

The Édition ParaSol Videothèque was founded in 2018 because of the 80th birthday of the actress Romy Schneider. The edition of the label Artkeim² puts the focus on high-quality Arthaus film classics with an emphasis on dramas, where also intersections and points of contact with thriller or comedies are possible. The goal is to publish the selected films in remastered versions in HD.

Édition Film Noir

The term “Film Noir” was first used in 1946 by the French film critic Nino Frank. After the end of the Second World War Hollywood movies came to Europe, which were perceived as a group here because of their gloomy mood and their contrasting black and white aesthetics. The roots of Film Noir lie both in German expressionist silent film and in the US crime literature of the 1920s and 1930s. Accordingly, the films are mostly characterized by a pictorial design dominated by strong chiaroscuro contrasts, mysterious or bitter protagonists and often play in urban milieus with shady private detectives between the fronts, gangsters and dangerously beautiful women. The focus is on crime and violence, existential crises and broken relationships.

The Édition Film Noir on the label Artkeim² was founded in 2019. On this label new Film Noir pearls are regularly released physically and digitally. Each new film of the numbered series will be available in a limited media booklet.
