"You live somewhere, walk fifty, a hundred, ten thousand times along the same road, take up fragments without ever fully registering THE LOCATION. Years go by, decades pass by. You go on without seeing, possibly unseen yourself. A building is torn down. Before a new one grows tall, you ask yourself: What did it say before? The moving patterns of this district are blurred, and impressions that since the 19th century waves have burnt through here around waves of new arrivals, leaving their mark in the alleys, houses, huts and shops. Ten blocks of houses, past, present, future, time, light, movement, immigration, exclusion, gentrification, racism, history, three languages, 13 voices, 152 years, 17,820 frames, nine minutes, 54 seconds, nine questions, five lessons. Chinatown." (Shelly Silver)

8 W POZIOMIE

2009 /
In a hotel room, a man wakes up and can't remember anything. He's got a suitcase full of money and a gun. Suddenly a 100-euro bill with the portrait of Pope John Paul II blows through the open window onto the street, goes from hand to hand... and finally leads to a dramatic mystery. The director is regarded as a master of the off-scene in the Cottbus twin town of Zielona Gora. A city in Poland in the not too distant future: a multicultural metropolis. A modern tower of Babel... In the hotel, room 224, a man wakes up and can't remember anything. He's got a suitcase full of money and a gun. Suddenly a gust of wind blows a 100 euro bill with the portrait of Pope John Paul II through the open window. The banknote flies onto the street, goes from hand to hand there, leads us through a labyrinth of human destinies... and finally to a dramatic secret. A movie where you can get lost. It begins with a series of simultaneous storylines, an abundance of scenes that irritate in their change from color to black and white - what is Santa's duet with the director of the children's home, who deals with his protégés? What does the Arab terrorist have in common with the woman who has been diagnosed with brain death? They are all in the same time loop (or infinity?)... The viewer knows less and less about the world, understands less and less about it. 8 w poziomie is the largest production of the independent group "Sky Piastowskie" to date, named after a new district in Zielona Góra. The film was shot for three years - in addition to Zielona Góra also in Berlin and London. The film unites hundreds of extras, kilograms of pyrotechnics, collisions, shootings... The amateurs were reinforced by professional actors, among others Marek Probosz, who was last seen in the Janosik remake of Agnieszka Holland. ZH

Old conflicts are breaking out again. A long night of waiting begins and becomes the parable of Syrian social relations. Three prisoners are unexpectedly released after 20 years in prison.

In Abu Ndal's house a room has to be vacated quickly, and families fear that old wounds and conflicts will break open. A reflective reflection between elegy and protocol that draws its tension from the latent uncertainty of waiting, indirectly poses questions of meaning and deliberately keeps its political metaphor open.

Back at the old places of his childhood, the young man is suddenly shot at on a walk through the surrounding countryside. In the village he learns that a clan that has long been enemies of his family wants to kill him by blood revenge. The origin of this blood feud goes back over 60 years to his grandfather.

Slowly the student begins to understand that he wants to lead a modern and self-determined life. On the other hand, Koli remains trapped in traditional and archaic rituals and structures. They inevitably bind him to the deeds of his ancestors - and he cannot escape them: Even when he returns to the city, his "new old" enemies pursue him now. Koli is scared to death and gets a weapon to be able to resist in an emergency. Eventually, he goes from being hunted to being a killer. Shocked and shocked by his own actions, but also full of fear of not being able to stop the spiral of violence, Koli sees only one way out: he wants to leave Albania - it will be his last journey.

ARTIMOS ŠVIESOS

2009 /
Two men and a woman. Linas wants to introduce her old school friend Tadas to the "rituals of the night". At first he's not very enthusiastic about it. But then Linas flirts with a beautiful woman and Tadas is speechless: he knows her. A road movie with extraordinary rules on the streets of Vilnius. A monotonous job at the insurance company, the bathroom a construction site, the tilers have made off with the down payment and the wife hardly talks to him anymore: Tadas' outwardly so perfect life is stuck. That changes when his former school friend shows up. Linas not only wants to take over the renovation, but introduces Tadas to "Night Driving". Always fill up with only two litres of petrol, let yourself be driven by the night, and hold your breath in between and switch off the light. "Like a reboot when the computer hangs," Linas explains to the friend. He's starting to like the unusual ritual. When it's dark, car lovers meet for a collective moose test on an ice rink, hidden emotions come to the surface. When Linas invites a woman on the roadside for a night drive, Tadas is far too astounded to explain that the object of Linas' desire is in fact his wife. With their headlights switched off, they drive into a dark forest - to find again the life they lost in daylight. The Latvian director has created an urban road movie, full of atmosphere, adventure and quietly crackling eroticism. The film acts like a parable on the crisis of the urban middle class, and the longing for a new start. CK

2009 /
Since the murder of her husband ten years ago, Judith has lived with her three children in Marseille. Despite her reservations, she returns to her home country Romania for a summer at the children's request. But there the visit triggers a spiral of violence because the old law of blood revenge is still overpowering. Black and white pictures of the past. Violence, vendetta, blood revenge.

But the children are eager and curious to get to know the country of their ancestors, so after ten years they travel for a few days to the country that once was home. As in a classic Greek tragedy, fate seems inevitable and the ever-increasing spiral of violence between rival family associations seems merciless. Archaic traditions defeat all reason and cordiality. The French actress Fanny Ardant, so loved by Francois Truffaut in particular, wrote the script and directed it for the first time: "I had to tell the story of this family, about the terror of the people, the authority of ancient laws, everyday humiliations, filmed as a plea for the renunciation of all violence". She was inspired by an essay by the Albanian writer Ismail Kadare entitled "Aeschylos or the Great Loser", shot in Transylvania and the actress of Judith is none other than the magnificent Moroccan-Israeli actress Ronit Elkabetz. Fanny and Ronit, two women from whom many men could learn a lot. If they wanted to or were allowed to. OR
