The following films had (or will have) theatrical release on the specified dates and have since been screened in selected cinemas:

Barricade | Barrikade

by David Klammer

In order to save the Dannenröder forest from being cleared for a new motorway route, climate activists occupied the forest in October 2019. For over a year, they lived in tree houses well over 20 metres above the ground, creating an alternative living and open space. A year later, with the start of the clearing season, the clearing of the structures and the clearing of the aisle for the motorway A49 began. With creativity, courage and music, the squatters resisted and engaged in civil disobedience until finally, on 8 December 2020, the last tree fell with the last tree house. David Klammer documents the protests against the clearing of the Dannenröder Forest for the planned motorway expansion photographically and with a film camera. His film accompanies the activists from September to December 2020.

The film “Barricade” has been honoured with numerous awards and has been shown at renowned film festivals. Here is a selection: Snowdance Film Festival, Auroville Film Festival, Hofer Filmtage, Kasseler Dokfest, Eco Film Festival in Portland/USA, Peleponnisos Film Festival (Greece), Transitions Film Festival (Australia).

Second Thoughts | Ich Ich Ich

by Zora Rux

Marie (Elisa Plüss) is blindsided by her boyfriend Julian (Thomas Fränzel) with a marriage proposal at his brother’s wedding in front of the assembled family. Marie has no clue how to react to this. She piles into the countryside to think about herself, her life and her relationship alone. Alone? In her mother’s vacation home, things soon become increasingly cramped and absurd: because Marie’s thoughts suddenly take shape, her thought people become more numerous and penetrating. They force possible baby names on her, an ex-boyfriend climbs down from trees, and a “lyrical me” in a sari proclaims Marie’s inner world in verse. Finally, her would-be fiancé arrives for real in the deceptive loneliness of the Uckermark, bringing with him a whole busload of his own thought people….

What would happen if you showed your thoughts to each other? How much honesty can a relationship take? In her first feature film, director Zora Rux, a longtime collaborator of Swedish filmmaker Roy Andersson, uses poetic tableaux to tell a surrealistic, comic story about the search for the true self.

Heiko’s World | Heikos Welt

by Dominik Galizia

Heiko’s mother Belinda suffers from keratoconus, a rare condition of the cornea. She is gradually losing her sight and could soon go completely blind if she is not given treatment. Belinda’s eyesight could be restored with the cornea of a deceased donor – but such a transplant costs a lot of money, and the health insurance does not cover it.

For Heiko, this is the beginning of an odyssey through the Berlin pub world: in order to raise the money for his mother’s operation, he faces the best dart players in town, at first reluctantly, but then with growing ambition, euro by euro. They, however, pursue completely different plans and thus draw Heiko into a spiral of madness that he could not have imagined before.

„Heiko’s World“ is a wacky, loving ode to – and odyssey through – Berlin’s corner pubs with their very own fauna of original characters, full of unexpected twists and turns, and with a main character who grows on us on his beer-soaked hero’s journey.

by Eline Gehring

The self-confident and lively German-Persian Nico loves her job as a geriatric nurse and is popular with everyone because of her easy-going and sympathetic manner. She enjoys the Berlin summer with her best friend Rosa until a racist attack suddenly tears her out of her carefree everyday life. Nico realises that she doesn‘t belong as self-evidently as she always thought. Haunted by flashbacks of the terrible attack, she withdraws more and more into herself.

Not only Rosa loses touch with her, but also her clients fail to recognise the young woman. Nico feels that things cannot go on like this and turns to the gruff karate champion Andy. With him she begins a tough training programme which helps her to channel her anger and discover her own strength, but she also loses touch with herself. When Nico eventually meets the Macedonian woman Ronny, a connection develops between the two that causes Nico to question the path she has chosen.

Trümmermädchen – Germany Year Zero

by Oliver Kracht

Germany, 1946. Hunger, rubble, returning soldiers. Charlotte is pregnant, but her beloved homecomer wants neither her nor his child. To win him over and escape the threat of disgrace, she enrols in the “Fräulein Course” run by actress Gloria Deven, who was an aspiring film starlet under fascism and is now banned from working. But Gloria, with her merciless teaching, is not interested in reviving the girls’ coquetry, which has become unnecessary during the war. Instead, she awakens in Lotte a longing for something that has been denied her for too long: Freedom.

“Trümmermädchen – Germany Year Zero” tells the story of young women’s self-empowerment against the backdrop of the ruins of World War II in intense, extraordinary images and is a blazing plea for cohesion and sisterhood.

Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets

by Bill Ross & Turner Ross

In the shadow of the bright lights of Las Vegas, the last round has come for a much-loved dive, the Roaring 20s, home and family substitute for a motley crew of regulars who find distraction from their rough everyday lives here. This is the basic idea of Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets, a film in which reality is as unreal as the world the regulars escape. It is a mosaic of very different life stories and tells of the last hours of a pub in which we meet people who grapple with the past while facing an uncertain future and who sing loudly while their ship goes down.

Filmmaking duo Bill and Turner Ross paint a portrait of a tiny world before the sinking, but one that still provides warmth and comfort to its inhabitants. The filmmakers’ unusual and compelling approach to non-fictional storytelling makes for a foggy memory of events lost in empty shot glasses and clouds of smoke.

Notes of Berlin

by Mariejosephin Schneider

A day and a night in Berlin: Karma drives an electric wheelchair, a flat share casting ends up with a squatting, a cook and a stray dog become kings, everyone is looking for an expectant father and a rabbit makes a nerd finally get to know his neighbours. Do Berlin taxis actually drive all the way to the Eiffel Tower? And who is the Queen of Berlin? All these stories and more are told by Notes of Berlin, inspired by real notes and notices found by attentive Berliners on lampposts, in stairwells or in backyards and then published on Joab Nist’s cult blog

The film strolls with us through the city and takes an amused, sensitive look at people and situations that might otherwise be overlooked. It is a declaration of love for Berlin, shows the everyday madness and chance encounters and makes the city the protagonist, because: “The heart of the city beats in the street”.

Dark Dreamers | Albträumer

by Philipp Klinger

Since her older brother Dennis jumped to his death two years ago, 17-year-old Rebekka has been trying in vain to come to terms with his suicide. Her parents are mainly concerned with maintaining their bourgeois façade and, like the village community, have long since identified a “culprit” for Dennis’ death: Vincent, his best friend, who jumped off the bridge with him at the time and miraculously survived the fall. When Vincent returns to the small town in the Black Forest after a long absence, the old scars are reopened. Rebekka, however, sees in the dismissive eccentric the only hope of finally understanding who her brother really was. Against the vehement resistance of Rebekka’s parents, the two young people grow closer and a tempestuous love affair develops that is both healing and increasingly destructive. Rebekka is drawn deeper into her brother’s emotional world than she would like. When the situation escalates, she has to make a tough decision.

„Dark Dreamers“  (German title: “Albträumer” is a coming-of-age drama with mystery elements, told in intoxicating images and sensitively acted, in which a young woman’s painful search for answers collides with the mental and emotional confinement of her surroundings.

Los Reyes

by Bettina Perut & Iván Osnovikoff

Los Reyes (English: “The Kings“) is the oldest skate park in the Chilean capital Santiago. But this movie is not primarily about the skaters, but about the real kings in this mircocosm: Futbol and Chola, two unseparable stray dogs that have found a home in the park between speeding skateboards and noisy teenagers. The younger and livelier Chola loves to play with the balls that are lying around everywhere. Her favourite game consists in putting them on the edge of the bowls where the skaters show their tricks and to try to catch them just before they fall down. Futbol, the older of the pair, often watches her game umpatiently. He in turn is always carrying something in his mouth and finds great fun in dragging things around and gnawing them off. The teenagers around have their own stories and problems, which can be followed in the background in their conversations while the camera captures the subtle interaction between the two dogs as they are slumbering, chasing a ball or just mooching around.

The movie is a meditative, almost fairy-tale like and at the same time very touching documentary film which tells a whole world through the observation of two dogs.

Anonymous Animals

by Baptiste Rouveure

The experimental feature film “Anonymous Animals” is set in a world where the positions of power of humans and animals have been reversed. In oppressive images and without any dialogue, the film draws its viewers into gloomy landscapes shrouded in mist and into sparsely lit rooms where frightened humans face a gruesome fate and are thrown back on their instincts. Escape from the dominant animals appears to be the only possible way out….

The film combines the everyday horror that takes place around the human use of animals with a disturbing premise: What if the roles were reversed? Since its premiere, the film has had an enormously successful festival career at the most prestigious international genre film festivals and has won numerous awards.
