Machi, Tomohiko and Hotaru attend the same high school. Machi misses her older brother, who disappeared six years earlier. The trio takes up his trail, which leads them first to Tokyo and then across the sea. Together, these two girls and a boy comprise a fragile love triangle. It is a game of attraction and boundary setting, of closeness and distance. The three of them are at an age marked by profound insecurity and a constant desire to search, as well as by curiosity and the spirit of discovery. These changing states and moods dictate the rhythm of Keiko Tsuruoka’s directorial debut. She observes the trio again and again as they drift through their summer holidays – in the swimming pool, going for a walk, hanging around doing nothing. If life doesn’t have a dramatic structure yet, then the film doesn’t need one either. Moments are all that count, and each one has its own special significance: Such as when Machi receives a crate of yellow peaches from a friend of her brother, which makes her feel the sadness of her loss all the more clearly. The journey of these three young people is filled with such moments, which they experience together and which help them understand one other.

In the film, couples, whose love is put to a special test, give us insight into their lives. One partner of each couple is not originally from Europe and the lovers find themselves confronted with immigration law and its impact.

Exposed (2013)

EXPOSED profiles eight women and men who use their nakedness to transport us beyond the last sexual and social taboos that our society holds dear. These cutting edge performers -- operating on the far edge of burlesque -- combine politics, satire, and physical comedy to question the very concept of 'normal.' Flying high with them, we get to look down on our myriad inhibitions. This film creates a unique perspective, taking the audience into the clubs an other hidden spaces where 'new burlesque' is challenging traditional notions of body, gender, and sexuality. The body types of the performers range from statuesque to trans-gender to disabled, and their personalities from sensational to scintillating.

In 1968, paragraph 175, which made homosexual behavior punish able by law was abolished in the German Democratic Republic. At first homosexuality was considered a negligible issue in 'real existing socialism'. The nuclear family constituted the center of social society. »Out in East Berlin« tells the various, impressive-to-absurd personal histories of gay men and lesbians during socialistic GDR until the fall of the Berlin Wall. Their experiences on the path to a self-conscious, outed sexual identity share one specific perspective: They are accompanied by the watchful eye of the Ministry of State Security (Stasi). Even their actions in the bed room were recorded in innumerable personal files. Based on the homosexual perspective, filmmakers Jochen Hick and Andreas Strohfeldt elucidate the political picture of the GDR, in which citizens are monitored, spied upon and whose movements are restrained. In addition, they are called upon to betray one's own cause: homosexual emancipation. An exciting, fascinating and vivid portrait of society is created from impressive interviews, situational scenes and historical material never shown before. A film that especially today possesses actuality and explosiveness.

Cesar Oiticica Filho's first film is a visually striking found-footage documentary about the filmmaker's uncle, Hélio Oiticica (1937-1980), one of the most important Brazilian artists of the 20th Century. Foregoing voiceover narration and expert analyses, the film allows Oiticica himself to narrate his life and expound upon his art in his own words, and in extremely rare archival audio and visual material. The artist's commentary guides us through his artistic development and expansive political and aesthetic interests, from his modernist paintings and sculptures in the 1960s to his expanded cinema installations and slide show environments of the 1970s, and from the favelas and the lively street life of Rio, New York and London to samba schools and the tropicália cultural movement, jumpstarted by Oiticica but associated with musicians Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. The film's rhythmic montage of images doesn't simply illustrate the artist's commentary, but both contextualises and radically expands upon it. The result is a bold and complex portrait of an artist for whom life (including homosexuality and drug use) and work determined and transformed each other.

These five directors couldn't be more different, and at first glance they don't have anything in common. And yet, if you take a look at their biographies, you will notice that one name connects them all: Rosa von Praunheim – probably Germany’s most uninhibited, confrontational and honest director. To commemorate his seventieth birthday, these ‘Rosakinder’ ('pink children') as they call themselves have created this cinematic tribute. As they talk about their own careers and how they came to work in film, Rosa von Praunheim’s influence upon key phases of their lives and creative output becomes apparent. Each of these directors has created their own, personal film about their relationship with Rosa. The resulting work is a vibrant genre mix in a documentary setting out of which their mentor begins to emerge as a father figure – with all his creativity, urge to be innovative, defiance, violence, provocation, insecurity and love. The kind of father with whom you sometimes argue so much you could punch him; but also the kind you call when all you want to do is be alone and not talk to anyone.
