Opening exground youth days / The new Roy Andersson / A family in need and a big meta-cinema
All young and young at heart filmgoers should not miss the opening of exground youth days today. At 3 pm in the Caligari FilmBühne, we are presenting seven short films by local talented young directors between the age of 12 and 18 in the WIESBADENER YOUTH FILM COMPETITION. The audience may then immediately choose the winning film.
Immediately after 5 pm we are happy to welcome the actor Anwar Hashimi from Afghanistan to the screening of THE ORPHANAGE (directed by Shahrbanoo Sadat). The film is featured in the INTERNATIONAL YOUTH FILM COMPETITION, in which a youth jury and the audience choose their favorite movie.
At 8 pm it’s time to decide: In the Caligari FilmBühne we present the new masterpiece by Roy Andersson ABOUT ENDLESSNESS, in which we may once again admire his great tableaux vivants.
At the same time in the Murnau Filmtheater A SON from Mehdi M. Barsaoui leads us to Tunisia in the summer of 2011. The planned vacation trip to the south of the country of a family of three ends in a catastrophe that tears open old and new wounds.
Anyone who has gone to Murnau can look forward to a film-in-film event CHAINED FOR LIFE by Aaron Schimbergthere there at 10 pm. On the set of a second-rate horror movie, the actress Mabel and her co-star Rosenthal start a romance, with the boundaries between film and film-in-film blurring again and again.
