BREAD AND TULIPS | PANE E TULIPANI | OmU

IT, CH 2000 | 114′ | Screenplay by Doriana Leondeff | Directed by Silvio Soldini |
with Licia Maglietta. Bruno Ganz, Giuseppe Battiston, Antonio Catania, Marina Massironi…

The Italian mum who always does everything for everyone is left behind by her family at a motorway service station. She ends up penniless in Venice, where she finds work, new friends and self-confidence. The quirky and world-weary waiter (Bruno Ganz), with whom she feels a kindred spirit, accommodates her. He falls in love with her. When she is tracked down and returns to her family, she finally understands…

Melancholic, upbeat comedy that focuses on ordinary people and portrays them lovingly. Precisely observed details, wonderful dialogue, a clear visual language and the excellent actors* make the film an amusing excursion about the coincidences of life, self-determination and love.

USA 2000 | 131′ | Screenplay Susannah Grant | Director Steven Soderbergh |
with Julia Roberts, Albert Finney, Aaron Eckhart, Marg Helgenberger, Peter Coyote, Scarlett Pomers, Tracey Walter, Erin Brockovich-Ellis

An unemployed single mother becomes a legal assistant and almost single-handedly brings down a California energy company accused of polluting a town’s water supply. Her photographic memory and dogged persistence drives her opponents to despair and allows her to win.

Screenwriter Susannah Grant dramatised the true story of Erin Brockovich. The single mother’s investigation revealed that Pacific Gas and Electric had knowingly contaminated the groundwater of Hinkley, California, with highly toxic Chromium VI for decades. In 1996, the corporation was ordered to pay the largest amount of damages in US history to that time: $333 million.

THELMA & LOUISE | OmU

USA 1991 | 130′ | Screenplay Callie Khouri | Director Ridley Scott | Music Hans Zimmer
with Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis, Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen, Brad Pitt

This classic fits perfectly as the opening of our series “Strong Women”. Women were already of crucial importance in the development of the project: THELMA & LOUISE was produced by Mimi Polk Gittin, who hired Ridley Scott to direct the film and set up the financing. Today, thirty years later, directing would probably be offered to a woman. Callie Khouri’s screenplay won an Oscar.

Louise (Susan Sarandon) prevents the rape of her friend Thelma (Geena Davis). In the process she shoots the attacker. The carefree weekend trip of the different girlfriends turns into a flight from the police. The girlish Thelma has to rise above herself and Louise has to face up to her past. Both end their escape from themselves and decide autonomously about life and death.

The most unusual film by the English star director Ridley Scott.

BLACK SWAN | OmU

USA 2010 | 108′ | Screenplay Andres Heinz & Mark Heyman | Directed by Darren Aronofsky | Cinematography Matthew Libatique | Editing Andrew Weisblum
with Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel, Mila Kunis, Barbara Hershey, Winona Ryder

Psychodrama of an ambitious prima ballerina which composes envy, ambition, fear and repressed lust into a complex, brilliantly mounted, dizzying paranoia.

Every ballet dancer dreams of the double leading role of the White and Black Swan. Nina (Nathalie Portman) brings skill, grace and a relentless pursuit of absolute perfection to play the virginal and pure White Swan. But can she also embody the deception and commanding sexuality of the Black Swan. The dance director (Vincent Cassel) forces her to self-discover and allow her repressed lust. Now Nina succeeds in her metamorphosis into the Black Swan. She discovers her “dark” side, breaks out of the control schemes of her frustrated, overambitious mother, but – accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s overwhelming music – falls into a maelstrom of delusions.

ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS | OmU

USA 1955 | 89′ | screenplay by Margaret “Peg” Fenwick | story by Edna L. & Harry Lee | directed by Douglas Sirk aka Hans Detlef Sierck | with Jane Wyman | Rock Hudson | Agnes Moorehead

Classic – considered to be a masterpiece among melodramas and was the unrivalled model for Fassbinder’s ANGST ESSEN SEELE AUF (1974) and Todd Haynes’ FAR FROM HEAVEN (2002).

Wealthy widow Cary Scott falls in love with her much younger nurseryman Ron Kirby. This causes gossip at the country club. Her children are ashamed that she wants to remarry below her status and buy her a television as a substitute for love and partnership. Ron is an independent man who can ignore the petty conventions of society, but can Cary also ignore them? In timeless manner, author Peg Fenwick tells a story about false morals, suppressed lust for life and the courage of a woman.

Produced in the USA and directed by Hans Detlef Sierck from Hamburg, who left Germany with his wife in 1937. As Douglas Sirk, he became world-famous as a filmmaker in the 1950s and is still considered a style-setter for the genre of melodrama.

We are showing this classic in the themed series SUPPRESSED LUST.

#FEMALE PLEASURE

CH 2018 | 101′ | Concept & Director Barbara Miller | Cinematography Anne Misselwitz, Gabriela Betschart, Akiba Jiro | Editing Isabel Meier

The documentary film unmasks global, socially, culturally and religiously traditioned oppression of female sexuality.

Barbara Miller observes five courageous, strong, smart women of five world religions. She shows their successful, risky struggles for a self-determined female sexuality, for an equal, respectful coexistence between the sexes.

The protagonists break the taboo of silence and shame imposed on them by society, their religious communities along with their archaic patriarchal structures.

Leyla Hussein (from Somalia),
Rokudenashiko (in Japan),
Doris Wagner (in Germany and the Catholic world),
Vithika Yadav (in India) and
Deborah Feldman (in the USA and the Orthodox Jewish world).

Each of these women is working for sexual education and self-determination for all women with incredible positive energy and all their strength. They fight against social, religious and culturally traditional norms and barriers. Each of them paid a high price – they were and are publicly defamed, persecuted and threatened, rejected by their environment, accused by religious leaders and fanatical believers and even threatened with death.

Often awarded. Deservedly so.

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.

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:
