YOL – The Full Version | Berlin | OmU

12. September 2020 | 19.00 | Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung
hofkino.berlin – open air cinema at FMP1 | Franz-Mehring-Platz 1 | 10243 Berlin

At the occasion of the military coup on September 12, 1980 in Turkey, the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation shows “YOL – The Full Version” and organizes a discussion with the producer Donat Keusch.

38 years ago, the Turkish military junta brutally attacked the opposition.  This is closely intertwined with the history of the most famous Turkish film. For decades YOL has moved audiences all over the world. The unfinished version won the most coveted award, the Golden Palm at the 1982 Cannes film festival. One can watch the masterpiece of Turkish-Kurdish film history, complete and restored as “YOL – The Full Version”. This is a must-see for anyone who wants to understand Turks and Kurds – and you will learn a lot about yourself.

The people portrayed in the film are Turkish and Kurdish, but such people are to be found wherever there is a struggle against oppression. They are all prisoners, some behind bars, many are prisoners of their own minds, but all are prisoners of the state.

In its depiction of the living conditions of six prisoners on home leave, YOL portrays an outline of the human landscape of Turkey. We experience how the people are oppressed, in particular, the Kurds and women. The patriarchal structure and its attitude to morality make up part of the repression.

The story is predominantly told through the fate of three prisoners, Seyit Ali, Mehmet Salih and Ömer. Three men who are torn from their daily lives. They had hoped that three days would suffice to forget the humiliation of everyday prison life and solve their most pressing issues at home. These shattered dreams make their crippling circumstances seem all the worse. So much for a glorious life of freedom! Ömer breaks out, Mehmet is shot and Seyit Ali remains a prisoner of his indecision. The struggle for a better life must continue and will last a long time…

YOL – Tam Versiyon (2017, Altyazılı)

12 Eylül
Kapı Açılışı: 19:00, Program Başlangıcı: 20:00

Filmin yapımcısı Donat Keusch ile söyleşi

12 Eylül 1980’de Türkiye’de gerçekleşen ve toplumsal muhalefete vahşice saldıran askeri darbe, Türkiye sinemasının yüz akı olan YOL’un hikayesiyle iç içe geçmiştir. Yıllardır dünyanın pek çok yerinde karşılaştığı sayısız seyircide her zaman bir iz bırakan YOL’un tamamlanmamış versiyonu, 1982 yılında Cannes Film Festivali’nde en büyük ödül olan Altın Palmiye Ödülü’nü kazandı. Türk-Kürt sinema tarihinin bu başyapıtı eksiksiz biçimde restore edildi ve  “YOL – Tam Versiyon“ adıyla yeniden seyircinin karşısına çıktı. Yılmaz Güney’in onur ve tutku, cesaret ve acı, merhamet ve zulüm, dehşet, öfke, aşk ve hayat hakkındaki bu baş döndürücü filmi, 1980’lerden beri güncelliğinden hiçbir şey yitirmedi. Film, Yılmaz Güney’in orijinal kurgu planına göre titiz biçimde yeniden kurgulandı ve Cannes’daki süre kısıtlaması nedeniyle ilk versiyondan çıkarılan bir ana karakter filme yeniden dahil edildi.

Bu filmdeki insanlar Türkler ve Kürtlerdir, ancak bu hikayelerde anlatılan insanları, baskıya karşı mücadele verilen her yerde bulabilirsiniz. Kahramanların hepsi mahpuslardır, bir kısmı demir parmaklıkların, çoğu da kendi ahlak anlayışlarının mahpusudurlar, ancak hepsi devletin hapishanesinde tutulmaktadırlar. YOL, altı mahkumun ev izni için çıktıkları seyahati anlatırken, Türkiye’nin beşeri bir haritasını çiziyor. Bu filmle, insanların, özellikle de Kürtlerin ve kadınların nasıl baskıya uğradığını seyrediyoruz. Ataerkil yapıların ve ahlakın nasıl baskının parçası olduğunu izliyoruz. Hikaye, koşulların onları sürüklediği güzergahlara ilerleyen üç mahkumun, yani Seyit Ali, Mehmet Salih ve Ömer’in yazgıları üzerinden anlatılmıştır. Bu mahkumların umudu, hapishanenin aşağılayıcı koşullarını unutmak ve hanelerindeki en acil meseleleri çözmek için bir haftalık izin süresinin yeterli olmasıdır. Yıkılan hayalleri ise yenilgilerini daha çarpıcı hale getirmektedir. Özgürlük günlerinde takdir görecek bir hayat için çıkarlar bu yola! Ömer devletten kaçar, Mehmet vurulur ve Seyit Ali de kendi tereddüdünün esiri olmaya devam eder. Daha iyi bir hayat için verilen kavga devam etmelidir ve uzun sürecektir…
Yılmaz Güney, Paris 1982

dfk*films colleague blogs for Wikipedia:Kurier from the Berlinale 2020

Wikipedia is much more than the world’s known, collectively created online encyclopedia. Deeply hidden in the ecosystem of free knowledge, a lot is flourishing and thriving. So does the Wikipedia Courier. For the BERLINALE there is an EXTRABLATT – a feminist one. We join in!

Since 2003, “Wikipedia Kurier” has been the independent internal newspaper of the Wikipedia community. Not neutral, not encyclopaedical – as Wikipedia usually claims to be. Entertaining, informative, collectively corrected and unbelievably versatile, it reports what moves Wikipedia and Wikipedia authors.

Berlinale Extrablatt – Focus Feminism

The authors also want to make a difference: That’s why BERLINALE EXTRABLATT is less about glitz and glamour. It is mainly about fighting the gender gap in Wikipedia as well as in film, culture and art.

Collaborative writing and editing marathons are held regularly – not only – but always on International Women’s Day. Since 2014, Wikipedia has been writing against the invisibility of women. Under the label Art+Feminism.

So we blog not only about the Berlin Film Festival but also about the Berlinale-Art+Feminism-Edit-a-thon 2020!

numbers | dates | facts – sad but true

Wikipedian Chî wrote a long, notable article on the gender gap in the Wikipedia Kurier on 17.01.20. A short excerpt:

90% of all contributors to Wikimedia projects (WMF) worldwide in 2018 were men – only 9% were women (see gender graphs and other materials on gender distribution).

84 % of biographies in the German-language Wikipedia deal with men: currently 631,741 to 120,398 women (80.95 % gap). The proportion of women is 16.01 % with an increase of 0.6 percentage points since 2018 and 1.4 since 2009.

In the English-language Wikipedia, the proportion of women in over 1.5 million biographies in 2018 was 17.67%.

Projects such as Women in Red and Art+Feminism are working to reduce this gap.

VINCENT VAN GOGH – LUST FOR LIFE | USA 1956 |

Film&Discussion | Bundesplatzkino | Berlin

Series PSYCHE & FILM – postponed due to COVID-19

Cooperation of the C.G. Jung Gesellschaft Berlin with the Bundesplatzkino and dfk*films

Speaker: Donat Keusch | Moderation: Edith Rosin

122′ | Directed by Vincente Minelli and George Cukor (unnamed) | Written by Norman Corvin and Irving Stone | Actors: Kirk Douglas, Antony Quinn

Van Gogh’s life was dominated by art and illness, euphoria and horror, desire, suffering and passion. The son of a priest longed for love and was exhausted in art.

Due to the outstanding cast this filmography became a classic of the genre. It follows the biographical facts with care and respect and shows the most important moments in van Gogh’s life: his missionary work in the Belgian mining area of Borinage, his relations with his brother and Paul Gauguin, the lack of understanding in his neighborhood, his financial difficulties and his early death in Auvers-sur-Oise. The film impressively and excitingly conveys the creation of some masterpieces by this exceptional artist. Kirk Douglas, who celebrated his 103rd birthday on 9 December 2019, was deservedly nominated for an Oscar for his interpretation of the great painter.

SÉRAPHINE

Film&Discussion | 03.03.2020 | Bundesplatzkino | Berlin

PSYCHE & FILM

Cooperation of the C.G. Jung Gesellschaft Berlin with the Bundesplatzkino and dfk*films

SÉRAPHINE | OmU

FR | BE 2008 | 125′ | directed by Martin Provost | screenplay by Martin Provost and Marc Abdelnour | cast: Yolande Moreau, Ulrich Tukur, Anne Bennent

The true story of Séraphine Louis / de Senlis (1864-1942). Heavenly voices command the bitterly poor, uneducated, unkempt, elderly caregiver to paint night after night. As if possessed, Séraphine creates picture after picture with abstracted floral, psychedelic motifs. In 1912 the German art collector Wilhelm Uhde discovers the talent of his quirky cleaning lady. The film “Séraphine” focuses on this encounter.

Christian Tilman writes on 17.12.2019 in Der Tagesspiegel: “SÉRAPHINE draws a difficult psychogram, without fear of exposure and embarrassment. At the centre is the so precarious relationship between Séraphine and Wilhelm Uhde. For no sooner has the art connoisseur, played with understatement by Ulrich Tukur, discovered that his so quirky cleaning lady has secret talents than professional interest awakens – and perhaps more. The result is a strange love story without love between the two outsiders…”

Ulrich Tukur: “It is one of the most successful films I have been allowed to participate in. Quietly and unagitated, it unfolds a silent world that seems to be still intact, but then turns out to be just as fragile as anything threatened by unpredictable life”.

The justifiably award-winning performance of the incomparable Yolande Moreau, the bitterly poor, solitary woman and Malian maid possessed by heavenly voices, is grandiose. “What fascinates me,” says the Belgian actress, “is Séraphine’s will not to let go of art. From the start she was fragile, lonely, suffering. She has found a way out in painting. Today Séraphine de Senlis, together with Henri Rousseau, is one of the most famous naive painters.
