Systemsprenger
Nora Fingscheidt, Germany, 2019
with Helena Zengel, Gabriela Maria Schmeide c7.8

Foster family, residential group, special school: No matter where the overexcited Benni goes, she pushes everyone to the limit with her excessive outbursts of rage and soon flies out again. The nine-year-old is what they call a "system blaster" in youth welfare. When there seems to be no way out, the anti-violence trainer Micha tries his luck.

Benedikt Erlingsson, 2013 c6.8

Five hair-raising, absurd, tragicomic episodes about people and horses somewhere in the Icelandic nowhere. The houses of the individual characters are hundreds of metres apart, but thanks to the constant use of field glasses, everyone knows about everyone else at all times. And what widowers and widowers, quarterly drunkards and rabid farmers, a Swedish horse whisperer and a Latin American bicycle tracker are doing here between barren pastures and snowfields, funerals and rides, is truly something that doesn't go on any horse skin.

Laurent Herbiet, 2019 c7.2

He was the greatest cinematic genius, capable of provoking both laughter and fear. At his last public appearance, “Hitch” paid homage to Alma Reville Hitchcock – his co-scriptwriter, editor, mother of his child, life partner. Through the lens of this collaborative relationship, this film examines the legend himself.
