Iceman

  • Over 5,000 years ago, in the Ötztal Alps (now in South Tyrol, Italy), Kelab leaves his family to go hunting. When he returns, he finds his wife and child murdered, his village burnt to the ground and his tribe’s sacred talisman stolen. Spurred by the desire for revenge, Kelab sets out in search of his family’s killers. Nature and other people are by turns his friends and foes. When he finally comes face-to-face with the perpetrators, Kelab attempts to satisfy his thirst for vengeance. But things don’t quite work out that way.

The Dark Side of the Moon

  • Corporate lawyer, Urs Blank, is the undisputed star of his profession. He has money and the perfect wife. But the suicide of a business colleague throws him off track and leads to an attraction with Lucille and her alternative lifestyle. Seduced into experimenting with hallucinogenic mushrooms, his dark side emerges, as with merciless power, long suppressed aggressions burst out and go wild. The once civilised lawyer turns into an instinct-driven individual and erratic murderer. Deeply unsettled by the change he flees to the woods in search of an antidote but the police and his vindictive business partner are already on his tracks.

Journey to Jah

  • The documentary film JOURNEY TO JAH is a tale of the seeking and finding of a spiritual home in a foreign culture, one that follows people who are connected by one thing: music.

  • Release20.03.2014
  • The two directors Noël Dernesch and Moritz Springer, as well as cameraman Marcus Winterbauer (“Rhythm is it“), spent seven years shadowing two unique reggae artists –  the German GENTLEMAN and Italian ALBOROSIE – on their search for authenticity away from western consumerist societies in the land of Rastafari and reggae: JAMAICA.

    People they meet along the way include RICHIE STEPHENS, DAMIAN MARLEY and also NATTY – driver and friend of Gentleman, who offers them an uncluttered look into the daily struggle for survival, far removed from the picture-book image of the Caribbean island. Professor CAROLYN COOPER provides a contrasting intellectual insight into Jamaican politics and culture, while reggae stalwart JACK RADICS reveals some astonishing truths.

    Finally, Dernesch and Springer run across upcoming Jamaican singer TERRY LYNN and follow her everyday life walking the streets of the ghettos of Kingston and also inside Berlin’s club scene.

    Together with the protagonists we delve into a world where music is used as an outlet to confront poverty, criminality and a lack of prospects, but also one that is characterized by a deep and uplifting spiritual bond. A world about which Alborosie says, “God lives here. But Satan too.“

    Welcome aboard the JOURNEY TO JAH!

    JOURNEY TO JAH is a German-Swiss co-production from PORT AU PRINCE FILM & KULTUR PRODUKTION and PIXIU FILMS in cooperation with Karol Martesko-Fenster of THOUGHT ENGINE.

Jack

When they finally find SANNA, JACK makes a drastic decision.

Gute Nacht

  • „Dial the number. Say the password. Tell them that I got arrested and I want to get out. And do not tell them who you are. Don’t tell them who you are by no means!“

    Far away from her hometown Mexico City, whose highly criminal energy and repressive family she escaped as a young woman, Sandra Torres has set up her own business as a Psychiatrist at the teaching hospital Berlin. However, with a single phone call she makes the biggest mistake of her life. And Sandra gets to know the grim side of Berlin: she gets hunted by the police, makes acquaintance of ruthless politicians, encounters dubious collegues, business tycoons and more than one Psychokiller. In doing so she comes across an explosive secret: Is there a state conspiracy for the protection of psychopaths? If so, what is it for?

Projekt A

  • PROJEKT A uses the controversial and unconventional views of anarchists to open the view on a world in tranformation. The life of our protagonists is a struggle with authorities, conventions and prejudices. They believe, that we can live free of domintaion, without a state, without police, law and courts, in a non-capitalist society, that is shapped directly by its citizens and not dictated from above. But is that implementable? The answers of our protagonist to that question are unconventional, radical and surprising.

Black Sheep

  • Schampus a gogo! loudly claims a drunken Berlin artist on a tourist boot on the Spree and instantly puks all over the clothes of a Munich yuppie couple. He expresses the need of all the other Berlin characters in this wild and dark comedy, who leave no stone unturned to make a fast buck. But to make money at all in this by poverty governed city is no bed of roses and demands quite a lot of inventiveness and creativity.
