Showtimes: Saturday, April 8 at 11:00 AM

Tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2906283

Directed by Evi Goldbrunner, Joachim Dollhopf. Starring Luis Vorbach, Jordan Prentice, Ella Frey, Marco Licht, Anica Dobra . Germany. 2016. 106 min. German with English subtitles.

Winner of the 2016-2017 Berlin & Beyond Film Festival Youth 4 German Cinema Award, presided by a special jury of young people from across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Michael, an 11 year old orphan, lives in a children's home and has to fight each day to win the respect of the other children. One day, he finds out who his real father is and writes him a letter. His father, Tom, happens to be a person of short stature, who is even shorter than Michael. He wants to accept the challenge of fatherhood, even though he knew nothing about Michael until now. For Michael, Tom’s handicap is a disaster, as he feels that it is opposite of the manliness and strength he envisioned his father to have. When the other children finds out, Michael’s life becomes a disaster and he runs away from the children's home. With no other place to go, he moves in with Tom. Tom is new to fatherhood but tries his best, while Michael tries to hide his embarrassment from his classmates. This forces Tom to confront his handicap head on. As time passes, they discover that they have more in common than other sons and fathers, and form an unlikely bond.


Fukushima, mon Amour

Winner of three awards, including the Audience Award Runner-up at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival in Germany. Young German woman Marie escapes to Fukushima to change her life. Working with the organization Clowns4Help, she hopes to bring joy to 2011 disaster survivors, some still living in emergency shelters. Marie soon realizes that she is absolutely unsuited to the task of making tragedy less wearisome. Instead of running away, Marie decides to stay with cantankerous old Satomi, the last geisha of Fukushima, who of her own accord has decided to retreat back to her ruined house in the formerly radioactive Exclusion Zone. Two women who couldn't be more different, but who – each in her own way – are trapped in the past and must learn to liberate themselves from guilt and the burden of memory. A universal and poetic tale about life and letting go from acclaimed writer-director Doris Dörrie (Cherry Blossoms - Berlin & Beyond Opening Night 2009, Enlightenment Guaranteed, Men). For the first time, one of her feature films has been shot entirely in Japan and in breathtaking black and white.

Together with her friend Peter, she tends to grandfather's goats and enjoys freedom in the mountains to the fullest. But these carefree times come to an abrupt end when Heidi is taken to Frankfurt by her Aunt Dete. The idea is for her to stay with the family of the wealthy Mr. Sesemann and be a playmate for his wheelchair-bound daughter Klara, while also learning to read and write under the supervision of the strict nanny, Fräulein Rottenmeier.

Eva Hesse

Film: Eva Hesse

Showtimes: Saturday, April 8 at 1:00 PM

Tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2906289

Directed by Marcie Begleiter. USA, Germany. 2016. 108 min. English.

Eva Hesse (1936-1970) is one of America’s foremost postwar artists. Her pioneering sculptures, using latex, fiberglass, and plastics, helped establish the post-minimalist movement. Dying of a brain tumor at age 34, she had a mere decade-long career that, despite its brevity, is dense with complex, intriguing works that defy easy categorization. Eva Hesse, the first feature-length appreciation of her life and work, makes superb use of the artist’s voluminous journals, her correspondence with close friend and mentor Sol LeWitt, and contemporary as well as archival interviews with fellow artists (among them, Richard Serra, Robert Mangold, Dan Graham) who recall her passionate, ambitious, tenacious personality. Art critic Arthur Danto has written that her work is: “full of life, of eros, even of comedy… Each piece vibrates with originality and mischief.” The documentary captures these qualities, but also the psychic struggles of an artist who, in the downtown New York art scene of the 1960s, was one of the few women to make work that was taken seriously in a field dominated by male pop artists and minimalists. −Karen Cooper, Film Forum 

 


 Scrappin'

Film: Scrappin' (Schrotten!)

Showtimes: Saturday, April 8 at 7:30 PM

Tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2906276

Directed by Max Zähle. Starring Lucas Gregorowicz, Frederick Lau, Anna Bederke, Lars Rudolph, Heiko Pinkowski, Jan-Gregor Kremp. Germany. 2016. 96 min. German with English subtitles.

Following his Oscar®-nominated short film Raju, Max Zähle dedicates his feature film debut to a bizarre and largely unknown culture marked by long-standing tradition: scrap dealers. Scrappin’ sheds light on this sometimes weird but always loveable milieu and tells the story of a family that needs to overcome their differences in order to keep the family business going. Mirko Talhammer (Lucas Gregorowicz) is beside himself when two strangers show up at his posh insurance office to remind him where he really comes from: a provincial scrapyard, where careers are not what counts and other things are more important: scrapping things, the family, and every once in a while, a good old fist fight. Mirko thought he had left all that behind, but his father messed things up big time before he died and left his son the run-down scrapyard – along with his brother Letscho (Frederick Lau, Victoria, The Wave). Letscho is still ticked off that Mirko deserted the clan. Soon the brothers realize that the Talhammers could only have a future if they can pull themselves together and fulfill their father’s last wish: to rob a train like real professionals. The coup itself is already a suicide mission, but then Kercher, the Talhammer’s biggest nemesis, gets wind of things…


Silicon Valley Revolution


Film: 
Silicon Valley Revolution

Showtimes: Sunday, April 9 at 1:00 PM

Tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2906299

Directed by Jan Tenhaven. Germany. 2017. 90 min. English and German with English subtitles.

This documentary tells the forgotten stories of some of the most influential personal computer pioneers in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the late 1960s, big mainframe computers owned by large corporations and the government were seen as tools of control. The Hippie movement and the anti-Vietnam war protests served as a hotbed for a revolutionary idea: creating an affordable home computer to be used by ordinary people – as a counterbalance to Big Brother. Well, the rest is history, but what has happened to the early ideals and the initial ethos of free sharing? As one of the visionaries puts it: “It’s true that what I helped to create is today’s establishment. That’s what I was trying to get rid of: the establishment.



 

Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe

Film: Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe (Vor der Morgenröte)

Showtimes: Sunday, April 9 at 6:45 PM

Tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2906303

Directed by Maria Schrader. Starring Josef Hader, Barbara Sukowa, Aenne Schwarz, Matthias Brandt. Germany, Austria, France. 2016. 106 min. German, English, Portuguese, French, Spanish with English subtitles.

Austria’s Official Entry to the 2017 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film. Maria Schrader’s drama Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe episodically tells the story of Austrian writer Stefan Zweig and his life in exile between 1936-42. Having been driven into emigration at the peak of his worldwide fame, Stefan Zweig falls into despair at the sight of Europe’s downfall, which he had anticipated early on. It’s the story of a refugee, a tale of losing one’s homeland, and of the search for a new one.  Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, New York, Petrópolis are four stations of an expatriate unable to find peace. Despite the generous welcome and the overwhelming opulence of tropical vegetation he encounters, nothing can replace his homeland. Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe is a visually stunning historic picture about a great artist and, at the same time, a film about a time in which Europe was coming apart. Premiered at the 2016 Locarno Film Festival in the Piazza Grande section.
