Let Yourself Go - The life of jazz pianist Fred Hersh (PAL)

The New Yorker Fred Hersch is one of the best Jazz pianists and composers of his generation. His musical work is remarkable, and so is his way of life.

Fred Hersch, now 53 years old, has been HIV positive for twenty years. His disease progressed to AIDS only a few years ago. He was one of the first Jazz musicians who publicly came out as gay.

Openly and well-humoured, he speaks about his life, his career with all its ups and downs and about his music - the vital force that empowers him to live with his illness.

Filmmaker Katja Duregger has followed Fred Hersch over a period of two years. She shot much of the material by herself, which enabled her to produce a very intimate and moving portrait of this exceptional musician.

"I can´t be a road pianist, I can´t be a band leader full time, I can´t be a teacher full time, I can´t be a composer full time. I like going in between the different things. That´s what interests me much more than being just a jazz star."
(Fred Hersch, 2007)

12 Tangos - Adios Buenos Aires

In “La Catedral”, a 200-year-old granary in Buenos Aires, some of the towns best dancers join for the weekly tango ball. The film narrates the story of these dancers and their ancestors in 12 tangos, including feelings of failed hope, crisis, immigration and emigration. The past, the present and the future of our protagonists also reflect the history of the tango itself, and give an accurate impression of present-day Buenos Aires. For the documentary feature “12 Tangos“ Arne Birkenstock and his musical Director Luis Borda have assembled a true Argentine Tango all-star orchestra with Juan José Libertella, Jorge Sobral, Julio Pane, Lidia Borda, Luis Borda and many more.

When the tango was created, their grandparents, who had come from Italy and Spain, were among the millions of immigrants stranded at the Rio de la Plata. Today, their grandchildren are heading in the opposite direction: back to Europe. In “12 Tangos“, recorded live in “La Catedral”, the hottest tango hall in town and performed by some of Argentina’s finest musicians, the film narrates very touching and personal stories of crisis and immigration – and connects the sentiments of its protagonists with the music, the lyrics and the dance steps of the tango. The film’s main attention focuses on the 71-year-old professional tango dancer Roberto Tonet, the 20-year-old dancer Marcela Maiola and the four children of Yolanda Zubieta. Roberto lost his savings during the banking crisis, his dancing partner Marcela is preparing her emigration to France. Yolanda Zubieta also travels to Europa in order to earn money and leaves her children behind.

7000 Kilometer Heimweh - ein Jahr in China

For a teenager, there is hardly a greater adventure than spending one year abroad. Without direct contact with their families and friends, they experience a foreign world, participate in the life of a different family, visit a new school and get to know the new way of life of a foreign country by living in it. China is one of the most exotic countries imaginable for such an adventure. Language, writing and everyday life have nothing to do with the lives of German teenagers. We accompany four German pupils between 16 and 17 years of age during their stay in their guest families in China. „7000 kilometers from home“ demonstrates what happens when both cultures clash in everyday-life.

CHANDANI UND IHR ELEFANT

Arne Birkenstocks dokumentarischer Kinderfilm über die berührende Geschichte von Chandani und ihrem kleinen Elefanten Kandula. Der Film wurde 2011 mit dem Deutschen Filmpreis als bester Kinderfilm ausgezeichnet und auf dem Internationalen Kinderfilm Festival in Chicago als bester Dokumentarfilm prämiert.

»In faszinierenden Aufnahmen erfährt man viel über die Arbeit mit den Tieren. Sehr gut auch die Übersetzung: Streckenweise wurde einfühlsam synchronisiert, ist das Gesagte nicht wichtig, so hört man die Originalstimmen.«
Tagesspiegel

»Gradlinige, berührende und nie kitschige Dokumentation für Kinder.«
Die Welt

»Der hinreißende Dokumentarfilm für Kinder schildert in wunderschönen Bildern Chandanis Bemühen, es den Männern gleich zu tun.«
Zitty

»Der Film will Mut machen, Träume zu verwirklichen, ein Selbstbewusstsein zu entwickeln, sich gegen Widerstände zu behaupten. … Darüber hinaus lernt man eine ganze Menge über Elefanten; wichtiger ist allerdings, dass er von Verantwortung, Fürsorge, Respekt und Liebe ohne erhobenen Zeigefinger handelt.«

»Ein bemerkenswerter Dokumentarfilm für Kinder, der fremde Länder und Bräuche nahe bringt und kindliches Selbstbewusstsein fördert. Darüber hinaus erteilt der Film kindgemäße Lektionen in Sachen Verantwortungsbewusstsein und erzählt eine kleine Emanzipationsgeschichte.«
