For the first time, the films will be shown at Pantheon Cinema on the big screen, between 20th and 27th January 2022.
The opening film is Maria Schrader’s latest film, ๐™„’๐™ข ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™ข๐™–๐™ฃ (Ich bin dein Mensch), starring Maren Eggert, who won the Silver Bear for her performance. The film is about the tragicomic and futuristic relationship between a woman and a humanoid robot.
Two documentary films deal with the future of our planet. ๐™’๐™๐™ค ๐™ฌ๐™š ๐™ฌ๐™š๐™ง๐™š (Wer wir waren), inspired by Willemsen’s essay by the same name, is a reflection on the current situation of our world. Six prominent thinkers and philosophers reflect on our times and offer inspiring outlooks for the future. The Dutch-German film ๐™Ž๐™ž๐™ก๐™š๐™ฃ๐™˜๐™š ๐™ค๐™› ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™๐™ž๐™™๐™š๐™จ (Der Atem des Meeres) is a cinematic portrait of Wadden Sea, showing the fragile relationship between human and nature, captured in magnificent images and incredible sound.
Three films are about children and young people. The awarded and highly acclaimed documentary ๐™ˆ๐™ง ๐˜ฝ๐™–๐™˜๐™๐™ข๐™–๐™ฃ๐™ฃ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™๐™ž๐™จ ๐™˜๐™ก๐™–๐™จ๐™จ (Herr Bachmann und seine Klasse) shows that school can be more than a place of knowledge transfer. In ๐™’๐™š๐™ฉ ๐˜ฟ๐™ค๐™œ (Ein Nasser Hund) we experience the meaning that belonging to a group has for young people. 16 year-old Iranian Soheil hides that he is Jewish in order to become a member of a Muslim gang in Berlin. What are young people prepared to do for the acceptance of their peers? Set against the historical backdrop of the Second World War, ๐˜ฟ๐™š๐™–๐™ง ๐™ˆ๐™ง ๐™๐™ชฬˆ๐™๐™ง๐™š๐™ง (Das Glasszimmer) is about betrayal and father-son relationships.
Famous actor Lars Eidinger plays the lead role in ๐™๐™๐™š ๐™ก๐™–๐™จ๐™ฉ ๐™š๐™ญ๐™š๐™˜๐™ช๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ (Nahschuss), a thriller based on the life of Dr Werner Teske, who was the last person to be sentenced to death and executed in the GDR in 1981. The last execution tells the unsettling story of a man who gets caught up in the mills of a system of injustice and breaks as a result.
The film series concludes with ๐™๐™–๐™—๐™ž๐™–๐™ฃ – ๐™œ๐™ค๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™™๐™ค๐™œ๐™จ (Fabian oder der Gang vor die Hunde) by Dominik Graf starring Tom Schilling. This film shows the crazy life in Berlin after the world economic crisis. It is based on the novel Fabian. Die Geschichte eines Moralisten by Erich Kรคstner from 1931, which was labelled as “degenerate” by the national socialists and was among the victims of the book burnings.
