FESTIVAL-NEWS: Day 6 // 22.11.2017
From Hasakah With Love

Between warm cinema seats and cold winter nights

The cinema seats have been already warmed up and the exground filmfest is ready for its next half – e.g. with our youth days:

A WEDDING [NOCES] directed by Stephan Streker is based on the true story of 18-year-old Zahira. The Belgian teenager seems to live a normal life until her parents come up with an arranged marriage with a Pakistani. 5:30 pm at Caligari FilmBühne.

LOMO – THE LANGUAGE OF MANY OTHERS by Julia Langhof tells about loosing control over your own life and letting other people decide about it – through an online blog… We are happy to welcome the director herself on exground filmfest – 10:30 am at Caligari FilmBühne.

8 pm at Murnau Filmtheater: DISAPPEARANCE [NAPADID SHODAN] by Ali Asgari.  The film offers emotional and deep insights into a couple’s life between tradition and  modernity.

A fixed component for many years of exground filmfest have been the Iranian shorts. Today we are screening seven movies: one world, two international and four German premieres. Stories will be told about men seeking for air and women who want to burn themselves as part of a protest against the IS.
