ex31 day 6: A day of self-discovery

It’s going to be shiny in our international section today: Diamantino, the world’s greatest football player, from Portugal (!), is in a rough spot: after losing his instinctive feel for the ball he is forced to end his career in shame. In search of new meaning, the iconic former athlete embarks on an adventurous odyssey. Do not miss this bright journey directed by Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt – DIAMANTINO will be screened at 10pm at Caligari FilmBühne.

Two more highlights can be found in today’s youth days section: In RETABLO by director Álvaro Delgado-Aparicio L. we will join a young artist trying to find his place in the world and the meaning of life – at 5:30pm at Caligari FilmBühne.

At 5:30pm at Murnau-Filmtheater our audience can experience exground’s annual short section Iran, consisting of six films.

At 8pm we are excited to present at Murnau Henrika Kull’s film JIBRIL off the Made in Germany section. The love story between main protagonists Maryam and Gabriel starts by coincidence but feels like a match made in heaven. It also marks an emotional tide change in Maryam’s life in Berlin as a single mom of three daughters. Only one crucial thing stands between her, Gabriel and a “happily ever after” – prison bars. Director Henrika Kull will attend tonight’s screening!
