THE CIRCUS DYNASTY – Cirkusdynastiet (Denmark 2014, Anders Riis-Hansen, DOK.international). Roll up, roll up for a tale of the circus! Merrylu Casselly and Patrick Berdino were a dream couple on stage and behind the scenes. Descended from two of the most famous circus families, they were the promise of a golden future. But does this love story have a happy ending? Atmospheric and highly emotional cinema!
FREIFALL – EINE LIEBESGESCHICHTE – FREEFALLING – A LOVE STORY (Germany, Switzerland 2014, Mirjam von Arx, DOK.deutsch). Herbert is Mirjam von Arx’s new long-awaited life partner. This is a love story that begins on the internet and ends prematurely on the face of a rock. Herbert was a basejumper and Mirjam is left with the question of why someone would risk their life so frivolously.
INTIMATE DISTANCE (Germany 2014, Steffen Köhn, Student Award). Berlin is connected to Istanbul, Moscow and South America. The world has become smaller because technology can bring us close to each other. Around the world relatives and friends are scattered. A couple resolve the distance between them with Skype. You can even sleep together – a webcam makes it possible.
ALLE 28 TAGE – EVERY 28 DAYS (Germany 2015, Ina Borrmann, Münchner Premieren). Ina and Marc have been a couple for years. Ina never saw herself as a mother but one day the desire to have children was there. What should you do if nature is not cooperating? The film shows first hand the significance of a desire to have children and its influence on relationships and everyday life.
MATCH ME! – HOW TO FIND LOVE IN MODERN TIMES (Germany 2014, Lia Jaspers, Münchner Premieren). Love in the age of self-fulfilment. This entertaining film shows what an individual’s search for a partner can be like today – far beyond the well-known dating portals. It is amusing, exciting and astonishing to accompany Sarah, Johanna and Sampsa on their path to find love.
