New short film: COVOID 2020 (GER 2020)
Planet Earth under the humans in the year 2020. The sun is not amused. The moon keeps following until the end.
From human joy and laughter to fear and death, from masses to the individual. On the way: noise, violence, environmental sins, slaughter, war, death and finally silence. Peace for the planet? From heartbeat to helicopter, from bats to suffocation - 2020 and the avoidable Covid-19 crisis.
Short film: SERENITY (GER 2016)
The film discusses the importance of succumbing to death as opposed to fighting against the inescapability and inevitability of it. The parallelization of the images presents death as something that haunts all living beings equally and exposes the subjectivity and vanity of the human concept of an assumedly different value of life between the species.
SERENITY features the poem "Fear no more the heat o' the sun" from the play "Cymbeline", Act IV. Scene 2, probably written in 1610 by William Shakespeare.
10 YEARS OF AL JOLSON DOCUMENTARY WORKS
2016 marks the 10th and last year of our Al Jolson documentary adventures. For that occasion, we are starting a Youtube mini-series of 11 short episodes with behind-the-scenes material and preview footage of our upcoming film - for each year from 2006 to 2016.
Our first video will come out in May, as our very first Jolson documentary trip to the USA took place in May 2006. Little did we know that this would NOT be the only "Jolson trip", hah!
So, stay tuned!
