What does Périot have to do with Le Pen? More than a date, birthday of one, election success of the other? The ego in world history as a flood of images from Michelangelo to the Teletubbies, to Hitler and David Bowie, to paintings, Bible scenes, postcards, archive pictures, porn and advertising. Right in the middle: Périot. Grit Lemke
In the family he is a myth: Andri, Carinthian, Slovenian farm boy, drafted into the Wehrmacht, deserted for fear, hidden by his parents, executed as a partisan at the age of 20. A very personal search for traces in gently shimmering pictures. In her award-winning film, director Andrina Mračnikar does not attempt to "truthfully" reconstruct a historical event. Rather, she weaves a fine web of disparate fragments: the mother-tongue narrative of her grandmother, yellowed photos and their stories, leaps of thought, shreds of memory. The images of authentic places filmed with the hand camera from oblique angles and subjective perspectives seem unreal. As unreal and fragmentary as the past inscribes itself in memory - a puzzle that never fits into a whole. GL
In this film, Périot presents the ultimate solution for all homosexuals, not without a wink: Integration into the world of heterosexuals, preferably becoming one yourself. He explains this with portrait photos from his youth, which he places on cut-outs of fashion shots and newspaper pictures and lets wander slowly back and forth like a wobbly dachshund. Annegret Judge
An authentic story: The civil war rages in Kosovo, but in Germany an illegally arrived Albanian and his Serbian friend go through thick and thin, until jealousy and intrigues are the two that threatens to separate. The interpersonal time bomb begins to tick. 1999: Kiki, an Albanian fleeing the Serbian army from Kosovo, lives illegally in Germany. He hides with his friend, the Serbian Tiger, who grew up in Germany and who can't do anything with the "nationalism behaviour" of his compatriots. Together they make Stuttgart's nightlife unsafe and work in a factory during the day. But jealousy and intrigue fuel envy and mistrust - the interpersonal time bomb explodes. This drama of friendship based on facts also draws a study of the milieu of illegal refugees.
"You should have filmed here back then!" It's been ten years since a guy wouldn't leave because of her. It went well for a week. "Love over, flowers withered." Since then Shura sings, reads horoscopes and partner ads and dances tango in stable rubber boots. A woman, a village, a life. Barbara Worm
The Uckermark, Germany's largest administrative district, is more than just a landscape in the north of Brandenburg. The well-known documentary filmmaker Volker Koepp succeeds in finding and filming unique characters in this sparsely populated region. Always with a view to the connection to their little corner of the earth, which the inhabitants of the Uckermark carry in their hearts. The Uckermark - Germany's largest administrative district: a wonderful, sparsely populated landscape, bordering Poland. The director draws a portrait of this region and, in his usual patient, careful way, melts the fate of the people with the course of time. He visits returned nobles who save a ruined castle, treasure hunters and knights of fortune, winners and losers of the Wende. Including wonderfully angular figures such as the director and actor Fritz Marquardt, old and new inhabitants of the Uckermark, who are as distinctive and idiosyncratic as the landscape they inhabit.
