Germany, Greenland 2021 – Director: Jonathan Omer Mizrahi, Ariel Sereni Brown – Original language: Inuktitut – Subtitles: English, German

An experimentally-narrated visual poem by a young inuit teenager facing depression who retreats from the apocalyptic present of melting polar ice caps in Greenland into the sanctuary of futuristic cybergoth subculture. A reflection on personal fears of the future and the present and an example of the postmodern flight into the private sphere. Andrea Erja

Ukraine/Germany 2021, Philipp Schaeffer, 16 min.

A short portrait of a young man, who choses Ukraine as the destination for his year abroad so he can teach juggling to children who have been affected by war. Surrounded by trenches, he confesses that he feels more comfortable here than in Czech Republic because the people are so kind-hearted. With great sensitivity the film shows a search for meaning surrounded by gunfire. Andrea Erja

Germany 2021, Felix Klee, 15 min.

How do you define home? What does loss have to do with pain? In opaque tableaux, Felix Klee searches for fragments of a feeling, for traces of a memory and grasps around to re-experience something that has been lost. In stoic black and white, he layers film with screencaps and 3D modelling. A farewell to transience. Jan Sebening

Germany 2022, Verena Wagner, 42 min.

Imagine the feeling of being deep in the forest – its vastness, the silence, the damp shade and the dangers that exist purely in the imagination. Can this inimitable feeling be recreated on the big screen? Come and be amazed; take the time to experience something that is as intangible as it is recognisable. A cinematographic mediation on the leitmotif: what is the forest? Jan Sebening
