Filmschool Festival – ifs Köln
“Buddha doesn’t create any worries; therefore, we call him: Buddha. We, living beings keep creating worries; therefore, we are called: living beings.” Everyone has worries: the woman in the shop has depression; the man is anxious about his job; the schoolgirl is nervous before a test. The modern world is busy, hectic and full of worries. In contrast, there is Buddhism, which aims to give order to worries and overcome them. Incidentally, a monk also has worries.

Four students from the Akademie der bildenden Künste Nürnberg are coming to the end of their studies. How long have they been making art, how do they make art and how will they continue in the future? The film not only brings the art closer to us but in particular the people who make it. You don’t have to have millions but it would help. Despite a lack of money, the four are imperturbable: they will follow their path.
Writer: Zsazsa von Ammon. Camera: Martina Di Lorenzo. Sound: Claas Berger. Editing: Nicole Schmeier. Music: Christoph Clöser. Production: ifs Internationale Filmschule Köln. Producer: Zsazsa von Ammon. Length: 23 min.
BOSTERI UNTERM RAD
An old man and his horse stand in the middle of the Kazakh Steppe. Behind them looms a Ferris wheel that goes round for only two months a year. We see the locals who are left behind in this leisure park as it lays idle and they wait for the next tourists to arrive.
English/Original Title: BOSTERI BENEATH THE WHEEL. Camera: Fabian Klein. Sound: Lino Rettinger. Editing: Jascha Viehl. Production: ifs internationale filmschule köln. Producer: Lino Rettinger. Length: 24 min.
