The Reichsbahnbunker Friedrichstraße survived the Second World War it was constructed for, various uses during socialist times and even a constant barrage of bass frequencies when it was a techno club in the 1990s. Since 2003 it has housed the Boros Collection of modern art. The documentary IN THE BUNKER makes five artists facilitators, tour guides in a way, each offering an eclectic path and approach to the art housed within the concrete walls.

Baz Luhrmann‘s films have two modes: intoxicating hallucination and the downfall. This was the case in ROMEO + JULIET, but more obvious in MOULIN ROUGE!, still his best film, which re-invented the Hollywood musical, in THE GREAT GATSBY, and now also in ELVIS. It‘s clear from the first second that this is about a downfall. The film tells the story of one of the most hated villains in show business: “Colonel“ Tom Parker, the manager and bloodsucker of Elvis Presley, who prevented the musician from performing live for decades, drafted him in the army, let him film banal B-musicals, ... more

A Chiara

Jonas Carpignano is deeply connected to neo-realism. His stories are set in the present and his themes concern those with no lobby, whether its African refugees in the Italian small town of Rosarno (MEDITERRANEA, 2015) or Sinti aand Roma in the infamous Ciambra suburb Ciambra (PIO, 2017). Carpignano works with first time actors using natural light in real locations. His most recent film CHIARA is also set in the southern Italian region Calabria where his first films were set in, and the residential block of the marginalized, which has also appeared in PIO, reappears here too.

Cop Secret

As the camera flies over the big city on the coast, it almost looks like America. When a building then explodes and a wild chase between motorcyclist and cop in a sports car ensues using lots of quick cuts, it looks exactly like America. But it‘s Reykjavik. And those of you who associate Icelandic comedies with laconic humor with depressing tendencies and strange loners will be disabused of that in COP SECRET. The film is a badass police comedy which makes fun of everything about action films and buddy comedies.

Bússi is the super cop of Reykjavik, he just has one problem: Hörður from ... more

But the 90s are long gone and in recent years his leading roles in blockbusters like THE ROCK and CON AIR seem like they‘re from a different era. And so Cage – with the exception of Michael Sarnoski‘s PIG, where he could once again show what he can really do – was mostly seen in direct-to-DVD ... more
