DER ANSTÄNDIGE
D 2014 | 94′ | directed by Vanessa Lapa, screenplay co-written with Ori Weisbrod | edited by Noam Amit, Sharon Brook

In 2014, private letters of Heinrich Himmler, the “architect of the Final Solution,” were published, which had been in private Jewish possession for decades. Vanessa Lapa has used the Himmler estate and other archival material (151 sources from 53 archives in 13 different countries) to make a documentary about a man who was at peace with himself, both professionally and personally.
Lapa transforms the documents into a psychogram about the perverse thinking of a senior member of the Nazi regime. Using his own records, the filmmaker exposes Himmler’s ideals, plans and most secret thoughts. She shows photos and films and underpins everything exclusively with quotations left by Himmler, his wife, children and the Nazi criminal’s mistress.
DER ANSTÄNDIGE premiered in 2014 in the Berlinale section “Panorama Dokumente” and received the Van Leer Award for Best Israeli Long Documentary at the Jerusalem Film Festival.

AUS EINEM DEUTSCHEN LEBEN
D 1977 | 145′ | Written & directed by Theodor Kotulla based on a novel by Robert Merle
with: Götz George | Kurt Hübner | Elisabeth Schwarz | Hans Korte | Matthias Fuchs

The life of Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Höß, uniquely embodied by Götz George.

AUS EINEM DEUTSCHEN LEBEN is based on the novel Der Tod ist mein Beruf (Death is My Profession) by the French Robert Merle, who was able to draw on numerous documents because Höß, despite false papers identifying him as Franz Lang, was arrested alive and willingly gave information. He saw himself as a recipient of orders and thus represents the prime example of a high-ranking desk jockey of the Nazi regime.

Kotulla’s 1977 feature film traces the career of its protagonist, named Franz Lang. AUS EINEM DEUTSCHEN LEBEN dispenses with a pronounced staging, which would always be a judgment as well. Without musical accompaniment, the film describes the most important events in Franz Lang’s life in fourteen chapters. With his non-judgmental approach, Kotulla gives the audience the opportunity for level-headed reflection: at what point in his “career” could Lang have left this system?

Lang’s career seems almost unspectacular and straightforward, the genocide he organized inevitable. AUS EINEM DEUTSCHEN LEBEN succeeds in illustrating the nature of an authoritarian system and documenting the despondency of the individual.

A rare opportunity to see and discuss this outstanding film work in the cinema, which is unfortunately more topical than ever.

Guest: Author and director Malte Ludin, son of a war criminal
Moderation: Edith Rosin

2 ODER 3 DINGE, DIE ICH VON IHM WEISS

D 2005 | 85′ | Screenplay & Director Malte Ludin | Cinematography Franz Lustig | Editing Hanka Knipper, Amos Ponger

Malte Ludin’s documentary begins with the words: “This is the story of my father, a war criminal, my mother, my siblings, nieces and nephews. A typical German story.

Family legends and historical truth collide in the film about the legacy of prominent Nazi Hanns Ludin, who was executed for war crimes in 1947. The son Malte Ludin, breaks through 60 years of silence and repression. He addresses and shows his father’s crimes and questions his sisters who continue to deny them. The film is an intimate look at the descendants of a Nazi perpetrator, most of whom refuse to accept their families’ history in Nazi Germany and confront the murderous family shadow.

Malte Ludin, who barely knew his father, makes these processes of repression visible. His courageous film is an indispensable provocation.

Quote from the FBW jury, which unanimously awarded the rating “especially valuable”:

“2 ODER 3 DINGE, DIE ICH VON IHM WEISS is one of the most exciting and intense German documentaries of recent years. In its psychological complexity and aesthetic precision, the film is a remarkable one-off. The extremely relationally reflected German family cosmos is exemplary as an antithesis to the current tendencies of repressing history and frivolous media games with taboo violations. Last but not least, this is a cinematically virtuosic work (camera Franz Lustig), whose sound level and music are also highly interesting.”

Following the screening, Malte Ludin will discuss his film with the audience.

About the speakers:

Malte Ludin, born* 1942 in Bratislava (Pressburg, Slovakia) studied political science in Tübingen and at the FU Berlin as well as directing at the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (DFFB). Since 1976 Malte Ludin has been working as a freelance author, filmmaker and producer.

Joker | OmU

USA 2019 | 122’ | written by Scott Silver & Todd Phillips & Bob Kane | directed by Todd Phillips |
staring Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Frances Conroy, Zazie Beetz

Surprisingly psychological and realistic the film tells the transformation of Arthur Fleck into the Joker – known as Batman’s antagonist.
A cinematic delight – especially for sceptics of comic book adaptations.

Arthur Fleck lives with his illness-stricken mother in a run-down apartment building. All he wants is to make people laugh, but he is bullied: by his colleagues in a small entertainment company, by drunken Wall Street bankers in the underground and even by a group of teenagers whom he then beats up. THE JOKER by Todd Phillips is the story of a brutalisation and demoralisation in our time. Fleck, alias Joker, is a beaten, maltreated human being with a severe childhood trauma.
This tortured soul is portrayed outstandingly by the emaciated Joaquin Phoenix. He was deservedly honoured with an Oscar for his outstanding acting interpretation in the film surprise of 2019.

CHINATOWN | OmU

USA 1974 | 131’ | written by Robert Towne & Roman Polanski | directed by Roman Polanski | produced by Robert Evans |
starring Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, John Huston

A private detective. A femme fatale. A family secret. Sex & Crime & Politics.
The plot is based on real events of the California Water Wars and the bursting of the St Francis Dam in the beginning of the 20th century. The Californian hydraulic engineer William Mulholland served as role model for the character of Hollis Mulwray. Producer Robert Evans, screenwriter Robert Towne and director Roman Polanski set the family drama in an atmosphere of distrust and shady morals – characteristic for film noir. The screenplay won an Oscar in 1975 as well as numerous other awards. The best film noir of all time.
