Samson

by Bruce Macdonald

Not only was he the very first superhero, but unlike the Marvel figures, he actually existed! Even Samson‘s birth is a miracle, because his mother couldn’t actually have any children. But an angel announced to her that she would have a child whose hair would never be cut, and that he would become a hero of Israel. So it happens, and the child with the long hair becomes the young Samson, who slowly becomes aware of his unimaginable powers, and then as head of Israel – as judge – keeps the worst enemies of the Israelites in check, the Philistines.

When he confides the secret of his enormous strength to his wife Delila, she betrays him. But this is not the end of Samson …

Involution

by Pavel Khvaleev

Involution tells us the story of Hamming and Liv, a couple living in the future. A future that’s reality is a far cry from the one we live in today. The Earth has been sent out of control, affected by a cruel and inhuman mechanism that turns back Darwin’s theory of Evolution… Every person gradually starts to feel animal instincts: uncontrolled aggression, protection of offspring, spontaneous sexual desire. All this creates chaos on the planet and leads directly to the extinction of mankind. Hamming meets Liv right before these horrifying events. And it seems that nothing can stand in the way of their relationship. However, quite soon, Liv disappears, and Hamming has to make an important step – to face the world endangering his very own life in order to find her. Hamming clearly does not fit into the outside world, as his previous life up to this moment was private and as comfortable as can be. Each event means overcoming his internal fears, but he is not going to stop until he finds Liv.

The overall mood of the film is the clash between the future and the past, high-tech civilization and animal instincts. The sci-fi thriller features elements of action, drama and satire, while the visual world called “Involution” is magical and profound.

Die Haut der Anderen | The Skin of Others

by Thomas Stiller

Marc Deville is a successful writer of erotic literature and he is a porn addict. He functions very well in his daily business but as soon as it comes to close encounters with the other sex he is completely unable to deal with it. He is totally afraid of letting people into his life – nobody ever entered his apartment, nor can he remember what it actually feels like to touch another person. His sex-life only works for him if he puts a camera between him and the other person, satisfying himself by watching the image. Marc meets the charming nurse Justine during a reading in a bookstore.

Justine is married to Eric, a successful theater director who loves her very much. But he can’t adapt to Justine’s sexual desires and out of that frustration he started to beat her up frequently. Justine has a death fetish – she likes to be strangled or choked during sex. In her garden she keeps rotting roadkill in a shed. They are kept in jars and terrariums and Justine watches them for hours. Death …

Montrak

by Stefan Schwenk

In Germany, more and more people are disappearing. Behind the mysterious missing person cases are no suspected wolf attacks, but vampires, which have their origin in the Middle Ages. Montrak (Sönke Möhring), a former burgrave, is condemned to vampire existence by a ring transformed by Lucifer. When he is hunted by humans, he has no choice but to be killed so that the myth vampire is forgotten. But Montrak’s subjects (Adam Jaskolka, among others) secretly create a new vampire master, who in the future will bring the country and its army into chaos for good. Only a small group of people (including Dustin Semmelrogge, Ralph Stieber) get in their way …

With “Montrak” a unique vampire myth is created, which is deliberately located in Germany. The story takes place in two levels of time: in the Middle Ages and in our times. Thus, in addition to a classic “count history”, there are also the “vampire gang”, as known from “Lost Boys” or “Near Dark”. The film pays tribute not only to the harder vampire films from the past days (people long for), but in general various classics and pearls of Phanatasischen film – especially from the 80s.

Im inneren Kreis | In the inner circle

by Hannes Obens & Claudia Morar

Iris P. had close friendships and intimate relationships with people she spied on. As undercover investigator “Iris Schneider”, she spent years researching the left-wing scene and the “Rote Flora” in Hamburg. After their media-effective exposure in 2014, two more undercover investigators flew to Hamburg within 18 months: Maria B. (cover name “Maria Block”) and Astrid O. (aka Astrid Schütt). They also worked with similar methods as Iris P. and were undercover in the left scene for many years. And in idyllic Heidelberg, the policeman Simon B. enrolled in 2010 specifically at the university to spy on left-wing students who had not dreamed of getting into the crosshairs of state surveillance.

Impressively, the protagonists tell their stories from very different perspectives. Supervised people from the environment of the “Red Flora” in Hamburg and young students from Heidelberg, as well as politically and legally responsible persons have their say, as the former Attorney General Kay Nehm.

Start: June 06, 2017

Back to Nothing

by Miron Zownik

Photographer, author and filmmaker Miron Zownir’s second feature film, “Back to Nothing”, was shot on abandoned, dilapidated locations in Berlin. A group of freaks subsist as city nomads in an uncontrolled ghetto, doomed for demolition. Hell breaks loose when their last hide out – a condemned factory complex – is to be knocked down. Kongo, Strasser, Bobby and Jackie are heading out – back to nothing. Zownir’s stark b/w imagery depicts an erratic, immoral shadow world without hope or mercy, that forces his protagonists to the lowest level of survival.

As in his praised b/w photography work, Zownir’s cinematic vision focuses on the hopeless, lonely, beaten and left-behind drifting through ruined, derelict urban landscapes. For “Back to Nothing” he teamed up with DOP Philip Koepsell. They created raw, rare images of Berlin’s seedy underbelly, deeply infested with nightmarish melancholia.

But the young woman’s initial emotional closeness begins to crumble and she becomes aware of why she has shown herself so detached from her younger brother: she has feelings that go beyond the usual sibling love. The unfamiliar seclusion offered by the picturesque landscape further enhances the passion for each other. But then Emilie’s friend Andreas (Jonas Hien) announces …

Wir sind die Flut | We are the tide

by Sebastian Hilger

15 years ago, the sea disappeared off the coast of Windholm. Since then, an oppressive calm radiates on the environment, raises questions, causes discomfort. The cause of the anomaly is still unclear. With a new theory, the ambitious physics student Micha is one of many young scientists who are fighting for the rare research jobs at the university. After years of work, however, he must experience how his daring project fails in the ossified system – he must not continue his project. Secretly, Micha sets off with his colleague Jana to test his hypothesis on his own.

Between dilapidated houses and deserted streets, Micha and Jana, in their search for truth, become more and more enthralled by this forgotten place, where they are revealed to a reality that they still have to face.

UFO – Es ist hier | UFO – It is here

by Daniele Grieco

Five film students work on their final project and are disturbed by a strange observation. In the sky, a gigantic ball of fire makes itself felt, which sets them a mystery. The adolescents assume that it must be a meteor and want to seize the opportunity to film impressive shots of the impact site. Without further ado, they make their way to Crater. In a piece of forest, they discover a trail of devastation: trees are burned, the ground agitated. However, they can no longer shoot, it is already too dark. They postpone filming the next morning and pitch their camp. But the morning brings horror. A student is missing and his fellow students do not have to search long until they find a trail of blood and his tattered corpse. To escape the place of misfortune, they go to their car. But instead of leaving the forest behind, they get deeper and deeper into the thicket. Suddenly the group feels that she is not alone …

Sharknado – The 4th Awakens

by Anthony C. Ferrante

Five years after the events of “Sharknado 3”, it seems that humanity is safe from further shark tornadoes. Aston Reynolds (Tommy Davidson) and his company Astro-X are working on a new energy stabilization system designed to prevent future sharknados. But an experiment goes awry and the sharks suddenly appear in places where no one really suspected them; in the stronghold of all gamblers: Las Vegas. Fin (Ian Ziering), his wife April (Tara Reid), April’s father Wilford (Gary Busey) and Finn’s father Gil (David Hasselhoff) have to pick up their legs and saw again to save humanity …

Once again, the battle-hardened trio of David Hasselhoff, Ian Ziering and Tara Reid receives support from many new guest stars: Sarah Knappik, Germany’s Next Top Model and jungle camp participant, who achieved a high level of popularity and caused a sensation in the media, sitcom star David Faustino from the cult series “A terribly nice family”, US actor Gary Busey from “Lethal Weapon”, Cody Linley from “Hannah Montana” and wrestling star Seth Rollins.

Anhedonia

by Patrick Siegfried Zimmer

The film takes place in 2020. According to the narrator, billions of people worldwide are victims of “digital, media, narcissistic, hedonistic, careerist and consumer-oriented overstimulation and suggestion by the establishment.” Hundreds of millions of westerners suffer from epidemic anhedonia, the inability to feel joy, lust, love and fun. Two prototypes of this suffering are the inseparable “aristocrat sons” Franz and Fritz Freudenthal, who had to witness the staged death of their famous actor-parents in their childhood and then grew up in a caring nudist sect. Although they have material resources beyond imagination, their lives are empty and boring. Without sense and purpose they let themselves be carried by slaves reintroduced on litters through the area. The new unique pleasure stimuli therapy of the world famous psychotherapist Prof. Dr. med. Immanuel Young attracts them, from whom they expect the solution of their problem. At his institution, peace of mind on the coast of Pellworms, they hope to defeat their illness. His four-phase therapy, which is characterized by surprising elements, ends in the writing of a wish list, which demonstrates the stupidity of humanity, according to a recurring film director in a meta-level.

by Pavel Khvaleev

When a mysterious deadly epidemic breaks out, a dying mother makes a promise to her two daughters Ayia (Polina Dawjdowa) and Mirra (Ljubow Ignatuschko) to look after each other until the end of their lives. Soon, however, threatens the younger sister Mirra also a victim of the epidemic. Ayia is desperate because she realizes that conventional medicine will not be enough to save her sister.

Sharknado – Der ganz normale Wahnsinn | Feeding Frency

by Jeremy Wagener

Sharknado – even this word creation is pure madness! How to figure out why the movies are absolutely cult and what Hollywood says about them: not normal documentary, but a winking look behind the scenes of the popular phenomenon – how it all began … As of 2013, the US production company The World, known worldwide for its “mockbuster” Asylum came up with a new “Saturday Night Creature” feature for the SYFY channel, nobody had any idea that it would not only be a full-length film series with the biggest success in Asylum’s film history yet, but also one of the world’s largest social media productions. Should develop media phenomena! At first, none of the celebrity performers like Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills 90210), Tara Reid (American Pie), or John Heard (Kevin Alone At Home) believed in the project they had only promised when the screenplay was still called “Dark Skies.” But the unique mix of comedy, action and monster show fascinated audiences worldwide. Twenty-four hours after the premiere on the US SYFY channel, there were already over 500,000 tweets to film! Including tweets by Lady Gaga, Mia Farrow, Olivia Wilde, Elisabeth Banks and many others …

Radio Silence | On Air

by Carsten Vauth

Doc Rock works as a radio presenter on the pirate channel ” Night Hawk ”. The most delicate theme of his program is the so-called Nachtschlitzer, an ultra-brutal serial killer who keeps the city in suspense. His favorite victims are young, beautiful women, whom he separates neatly and in the living body, the limbs. After their agonizing death, he transforms them into a human vase by putting a long-stemmed rose deep in their mouths. Doc does not want to understand why this abysmal evil killer is still running around freely. And so he provokes the police over the air with the question, why one can not prevent that madman slaughtering his next victim.

A few moments later, in the basement of his house, a call reaches him in the studio – the night slicer himself is on the line. And Doc Rock proposes an equally perfidious and murderous game: If Doc manages to prevent him from committing another murder during his radio show, he would be willing to actually let his hostage live. Now the moderator has to act fast. And he can not afford a mistake. Because the killer is much closer to him than he would have thought in his wildest dreams – and the chances of escaping him, go to zero.

Berlinized

by Lucian Busse

Berlin in the 90s – In addition to the great political upheavals and the commercialized technoculture, a now rather forgotten parallel universe shaped the lifestyle of the city: the world of cellar bars and backyard creatives.

In the free houses and apartments in Berlin-Mitte celebrated after the fall of the wall, a scene of very different young people a carefree freedom. Whether a project was promising or not – no matter – you lived from one event to the next experiment and operated the Ent-Establishment of art and market quite playful.

The film “Berlinized” describes this special way of life in a reflexive journey through time to Berlin in the mid-90s. The filmmaker Lucian Busse, himself an active protagonist of that time, used his camera to document the city’s transformation, the art scene, clubs, concerts and construction sites, where the open spaces were filled with ever new impersonal office buildings.

Die Präsenz | The Presence

by Daniele Grieco

The anthropology student Markus deals in his study with popular superstition and the poltergeist phenomenon. When his friend Lukas hears of a remote castle in which it is supposed to haunt, Markus wants to use the chance to record something paranormal – they decide to spend a week of the upcoming holidays there. His girlfriend Rebecca is only inaugurated when the three are already on their way. The students gain unauthorized access to the gloomy moated castle and set themselves up for the night. What seems to be fun at first, however, soon becomes bloody serious: Something demonic seems to be at work in the castle, and events are getting out of control.

A gigantic whirlwind that has caught a shark’s warmth off the California coast and blown it up is heading for Los Angeles. Fin, the owner of a surfing bar on Long Beach, must watch in horror as the storm and the sheer incessant rain of giant white sharks destroy his lifelong dream. Together with his best friend Baz, his girlfriend and the old drunkard George, he sets out armed with chainsaws and shotguns to protect his ex-wife April and his two children from these flying eating machines.

Tne Last Giants – Oceans in Danger

by Daniele Grieco

Until a few years ago, it was barely known what a natural paradise the Strait of Gibraltar is: Here more whales live in the smallest of spaces than anywhere else in the world. But the strait is also a major bottleneck in global commodity traffic, severely threatening marine mammals. They are rammed, fall into the screws, are poisoned by sewage or lose their food base due to overfishing. “The Last Giants” surprises with amazing facts and fascinating pictures.

The film documents the great commitment of Swiss animal rights activist Katharina Heyer to the preservation of biodiversity in the region and worldwide. It’s a fight between David and Goliath.
