EICHENHAIN

Drama

Script & Director: Rainer Kirberg

An ancient forest in Germany left to itself and used only sporadically: as hunting ground, as sanctuary, as place of reflection, as final resting place. Eichenhain is about four encounters between the forest and human beings. In a period of 2000 years, the nature has become a silent witness of conflicts and dilemmas, in which the human being is exposed to his sense of transcendentalism.

„Eichenhain is a metaphysical trip through our existence, an ethnographical tragic comedy, which is glancing incorruptibly and condescendingly at the human kind in all of its malice and greatness.“

Rainer Kirberg Kirberg studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. As a filmmaker, he published four features, including the in 1980 released cult film: Die letzte Rache. Besides known actors such as Tcheky Karyo (Nikita), Erwin Leder (Das Boot) and Peter Lohmeyer, he also worked with the Dalí-Muse and Disco-Queen Amanda Lear and the underground film legend Kenneth Anger.

LOCKVÖGEL

Episodic Drama

Script & Director: Redmond Entwistle

A young man and woman are caught up by a story about the RAF. In 1985, a US-soldier gets lured out of a disco in Wiesbaden and gets killed. The forensics gradually turn into a re-enactment of the events. Soon, they find themselves in the role of temptress and victim.

„Both of my protagonists, Simone and James, have lost control in the present, so they are trying to orientate themselves with the help of myths from the recent past. Attracted by the roles of the soldier and the political activist, they follow a story which is not their own. Essentially, they are looking for an opportunity to understand themselves and to leave their marks on this world.“ Redmond Entwistle

With Lilith Stangenberg („Wild“) and Lee Daniel behind the camera („Boyhood“, „Dazed and Confused“, „Before Sunrise“ etc.)
