ON IMAGES – ÜBER BILDER – 10 VIEWS (Germany 2014, Heiner Stadler). Our appropriation of the world is increasingly based on worlds of images that then in turn create their own new worlds. This documentary introduces us to different people who work with imaging technology. A sensual film that shows us how things are and, in doing so, incidentally questions our future.
THE TIMES OF HARVEY MILK (United States 1984, Robert Epstein). "You gotta give ’em hope!” Harvey Milk’s election speech is legendary. He was involved in the US Civil Rights movement as a gay martyr. Robert Epstein’s in depth portrait conjures up the spirit of the 1970s, when the private was also always very political.
WAS HEISST HIER ENDE? DER FILMKRITIKER MICHAEL ALTHEN – THEN IS IT THE END? THE FILM CRITIC MICHAEL ALTHEN (Germany 2015, Dominik Graf). “Happiness is something with wings. It comes and goes as it pleases. You can’t force it to stay. Even less so in the cinema.” Nobody knows this better than the film critic, Michael Althen, who died prematurely. He is the protagonist of Dominik Graf’s essay film about a passion for cinema.
