Das junge Kunstfestival unter der Leitung von Mahsa Majedfallah widmet sich unter dem Stichwort Return der Rückbesinnung auf das kulturelle Erbe der verschiedenen Künste, die die Gesellschaft maßgeblich mitprägen und fester Bestandteil unseres menschlichen Zusammenlebens sind. Dabei ist der Rückblick eigentlich der Blick nach vorn: Welches Erbe hinterlassen wir in der Zukunft? Das ist die zentrale programmatische Frage des Festivals. Filme aus 80 Ländern gingen an den Start, 50 wurden im November 2021 gezeigt. An zwei gemütlichen Kinoabenden können Sie noch einmal die sieben prämierten Filmbeiträge des Festivals sehen.
Trauma Industrie, Spielfilm, 13 min, Frankreich (2017)
It’s a big day for Joseph, his family is taking him to the Smile-Rite® toy factory to celebrate his twelfth birthday. And everybody knows that when you turn twelve, that’s when you become a man…
Taking a look at today's world through the eyes of a 1940s style science fiction movie, Trauma Industries was shot on 35mm film, using techniques and technology of the era.
An independently produced film which takes a critical look at how we become entangled in a society of mass media, mass production and mass consumption, Trauma Industries was produced in the spirit of it's message, bringing new life to old things wherever possible; using out of date film stock left over from a feature film, old cameras and equipment borrowed from friends, costumes bought from flea markets, and filming in a disused psychiatric hospital.
Sigh, Animation, 15 min, Moldawien (2019)
This is the story of a grey man who is always sighing. Living in a grey city, covered in smog, he keeps on sighing until he dries out and becomes skin and bones. But even in the darkest corners of the soul, there is light and color.
