TEL AVIV ON FIRE

TEL AVIV ON FIRE

Mon 26.08.20:15TEL AVIV ON FIRE Im Gotthard um die Welt!OVdfGotthard

By Sameh Zoabi, with Yaniv Biton, Lubna Azabal, Kais Nashif, Nadim Sawalha.

Shy and loveable Palestinian Salam is already in his thirties without, however, having quite found his way in life. That is why he eagerly takes on an internship with the successful TV soap «Tel Aviv on Fire». In order to reach the television studio, Salam has to pass through the check-point between his home in Jerusalem and Ramallah on a daily basis. This is where he meets Assi, chief of the Israeli border crossing, who is excited to meet one of the "makers" of his wife's favourite series. To impress his sweetheart, Assi puts increasing pressure on Salam to design the series according to his preferences. Meanwhile, Salam realises that Assi’s creative ideas are his big chance to become a screenwriter. When Assi’s demands are no longer compatible with those of the Arab creator’s, Salam is faced with a dilemma... Director Sameh Zoabi uses TEL AVIV ON FIRE to approach the conflict in the Middle East from a completely different, original and heartfelt comedic angle.

By Alejandro Landes, with Sofía Buenaventura, Moisés Arias, Julianne Nicholson.

Patagrande, Rambo, Leidi, Sueca, Pitufo, Lobo, Perro and Bum Bum. Eight stray teenagers, each bearing a code name, form a paramilitary squad on a remote hilltop. They are instinctively drawn towards hedonism and ferocity. A messenger delivers instructions from the Organisation: they are to look after a dairy cow called Shakira and an abducted woman from the USA known as Doctora. But their carefree time comes to an end when death pays them a visit and their position is compromised, forcing them to relocate deeper into the jungle. Alejandro Landes and co-writer Alexis Dos Santos have created a disquieting take on the war film and survival thriller. Theirs is a work of scant explanations but of visceral emotions. Heightened by Jasper Wolf’s piercing cinematography, Mica Levi’s superbly tense score and uncannily sharp editing by Yorgos Mavropsaridis, Ted Guard and Santiago Otheguy, Landes’ exhilarating third feature impresses by zooming in on the shifting allegiances and power struggles of an adolescent, primal tribe.

GOD EXISTS, HER NAME IS PETRUNYA

GOD EXISTS, HER NAME IS PETRUNYA

Mon 09.09.20:00GOD EXISTS, HER NAME IS PETRUNYA FLIZ-Filmclub - Im Gotthard um die Welt!OVdfGotthard

By Teona Strugar Mitevska, with Zorica Nusheva, Labina Mitevska, Simeon Moni Damevsk.

‘Tell them you’re 24’, advises Petrunya’s mother as her daughter heads off to another interview. But Petrunya is 31; moreover, she has studied history, a subject that no one in Macedonia seems to need. So there she sits in front of her potential employer, a factory owner, who looks down on her floral dress and refuses to take her seriously. On her way home – naturally, she did not get the job – Petrunya decides to take the plunge. It is Epiphany and, like every year, the young men of the city are diving for the holy cross that the priest has thrown into the icy river. This time, Petrunya is quicker than everyone else and ends up holding the trophy aloft for the TV cameras. For one whole day and one night, she will defend the cross, accompanied by much public commotion and against the closed ranks of the male world. Teona Strugar Mitevska delivers an angry yet melancholic satire that questions the status of democratic change in Macedonian society and passes scathing judgement on representatives of the church, the judiciary and the media. The film’s sympathies are all with the determined woman who asserts herself against archaic traditions and paralysing opportunism.

By Alaa Eddine Aljem, with Hassan Ben Bdida, Anas El Baz, Mohamed Naimane.

Amine steals a big bag of money and escapes into the hills with the police hot on his trail. Before he is arrested, he digs a grave to bury the cash and disguises it as a modest tomb. Years later, Amine is released from prison and sets off to find his money. In the meantime, a religious shrine has been built directly over the place he buried his cash. The mausoleum honors an unknown saint from the region whose tomb was recently discovered. Down the hill from the resting place of the “The Unknown Saint”, a new village subsists on the pilgrims who travel from far and wide to visit the mausoleum. Amine settles into the village and begins plotting a way in. But with the loot now hidden in a holy place, retrieving it suddenly becomes much more complicated.

THE SONG OF MARY BLANE

THE SONG OF MARY BLANE

Mon 14.10.20:00THE SONG OF MARY BLANE FLIZ-Filmclub - Im Gotthard um die Welt!DGotthard

By Bruno Moll.

Der Solothurner Kunstmaler Frank Buchser wird im Jahre 1866 in die USA geschickt um ein grosses Gemälde der «Helden des Bürgerkriegs» für den künftigen Nationalratssaal in Bern zu malen. Anfänglich porträtiert Buchser fleissig die Politiker und Generäle im Sinne seiner Auftraggeber. Mehr und mehr interessiert er sich aber für die in die Reservate vertriebenen Indianer und die Lebensbedingungen der eben befreiten Sklaven.

Jahre früher, fasziniert von der maurischen Kultur, reitet Frank Buchser als türkischer Scheich verkleidet in die für Christen bei Todesstrafe verbotene marokkanische Stadt Fez. Der Schweizer Filmemacher Bruno Moll (PIZZA BETHLEHEM, TUNISREISE) erzählt die beiden abenteuerlichen Reisen des aufmüpfigen und streitbaren Künstlers. Die Filmerzählung beginnt mit Filmdokumenten der Ausschreitungen im August 2017 in Charlottesville und den von Frank Buchser gemachten Tagebucheintragungen im Jahre 1869, als General Lee ihm für das Porträt Modell stand. In einer grossen Rückblende erzählt der Film Buchsers Aufenthalt in Andalusien und Marokko im Jahr 1858, kehrt mit ihm in die Heimat zurück und schliesst mit seinem nordamerikanischen Abenteuer.

FOR SAMA

FOR SAMA

Mon 28.10.20:15FOR SAMA Im Gotthard um die Welt!OVdfGotthard

By Waad Al-Khateab & Edward Watts.

FOR SAMA is both an intimate and epic journey into the female experience of war. A love letter from a young mother to her daughter, the film tells the story of Waad al-Kateab’s life through five years of the uprising in Aleppo, Syria as she falls in love, gets married and gives birth to Sama, all while cataclysmic conflict rises around her. Her camera captures incredible stories of loss, laughter and survival as Waad wrestles with an impossible choice – whether or not to flee the city to protect her daughter’s life, when leaving means abandoning the struggle for freedom for which she has already sacrificed so much.
