Benni is 8 years old and always wears bright pink, but she isn‘t cute in the slightest. She‘s mostly angry. She screams, runs away, and hits other children, which is why she has landed in many group homes with stints in the children‘s psychiatric clinic as well. When she‘s not angry, she often falls into a kind of apathy, looks out into the distance, lets others roll by. We don‘t find out what is going on exactly, the reason for Benni‘s explosive behavior, only that Benni hates it when you touch her face because she had a traumatic experience as a small child. People don‘t know ... more

Young Israeli Yoav (Tom Mercier) tries to shed his cultural identity in Paris and become French. He fled his country in complete disillusionment after his military service. Biting humor meshes with his resistance to ever speak his own language. Instead, Yoav reads the French dictionary from A to Z and absorbs as much of Parisian life as he can, including a sexy three-way relationship with a French intellectual couple. The image speed flashes as quickly as the period of time it takes Yoav to conquer the city: the mystery of a life that tries to escape its roots grows.

90’s Revival: FIGHT CLUB & SPEED

It is known that there are several 35mm-fanatics at Filmrauschpalast. 35mm-films definitely seem more lively and have more depth of color than digital cinema. Unfortunately, there are mostly only copies of dubbed film versions in Germany, which more torturous than watching a well-restored digital version for cineastes. There are only a few distributor archives with 35mm-copies of original versions. You have to research it and import it from abroad if necessary, which is expensive since real films weigh around 25 kg. Filmrauschpalast has made the effort. Those who want to see FIGHT ... more


Carmine Street Guitars

As cities around the world succumb to the relentless march of modernization and gentrification, documenting the hangers-on from the olden days – be they businesses, buildings, or people – becomes an increasingly urgent task. This feeling of the inevitability of progress is a constant below-the-surface subtext in Ron Mann’s documentary CARMINE STREET GUITARS, which portrays the day-to-day existence of the eponymous, decades-old Greenwich Village guitar shop.

The film centers around Rick Kelly, the shop’s owner, as he cuts, planes, and sands raw wood into one-of-a-kind instruments in ... more


Becoming Animal

BECOMING ANIMAL is a combination tone poem, philosophical treatise, nature documentary, and road trip movie based on the deep-nature philosophy of writer David Abram (and particularly his book of the same title). The film, co-directed by Emma Davie and Peter Mettler, takes place in and around Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park, as the two filmmakers and Abram drive and hike their way through the natural world.

While the film opens with a wonderfully taut series of shots featuring a moose in a meadow and an elk calling out in the darkness, it proceeds to take an unfortunate turn into ... more
