Cinema release on 11.09.2020: 
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE ON EARTH 

Our new cinema documentary The Most Beautiful Place on Earth by Elke Groen has its Austrian cinema release on 11th September. The film would have had its premiere at this year`s DIAGONALE`20 as the opening film of the festival. Due to Corona crisis, the festival unfortunately had to be canceled. This extraordinary documentary is a portrait of Norbert Hofer, the rightwing FPÖ leaders` hometown and its changes over several years. It is a multi-layered picture of a microcosm that has been divided by populism and yet has never given up its longing for cohesion.

SOLO – wins New Talent Award @ Docs Barcelona 2020

After its premier at the 72. Film Festival in Cannes in May 2019 our co-production Solo by Artemio Benki has been awarded and screened at a number of international festivals in 2019. The documentary won the main award at MAKEDOX Film Festival, the award for Best Czech documentary at Jihlava Film Festival and the main award at Duhok Film Festival.

End of May 2020 we received the great news that Solo won the New Talent Award at Docs Barcelona. After the tragic news of Artemio Benki`s passing in April at the age of 53 we are especially pleased that his last cinematic work, his heart's project, is being honoured, celebrated and seen in the international festival context.

Solo narrates the story of Martín, an Argentinian piano virtuoso and composer and his life within the infamous psychiatry El Borda. After four years inside, the former wunderkind tries to leave behind his mental disorder aiming to reenter life as well as the stage. The movie depicts the development of a man that ultimately manages to draw strength from his fragility.

LITTLE GERMANS was nominated for the German Film Award and premiered at CPH:DOX

Our co-production Little Germans, an animated documentary by Mohammad Farokhmanesh und Frank Geiger, has been nominated for the DEUTSCHEN FILMPREIS 2019. The ceremony will be held at the Berliner Palais am Funkturm on May 3rd. We are very excited to see the reactios to this extraordinary Film, that chose to cover stories about children of right-wing-extrimists as it's theme.

About Little Germans:
Our children grow up in a world ruled by extremes: the fight for democracy on one side and the call for national isolation on the other side. Little Germans combines animation and documentary to tell the story of children born into extreme right-wing families. From a young age on they are groomed to hate everything that seems "foreign". How does it feel to grow up in a world, where empathy is subsidiary and "the nation" stands above everything? And who do those "little Germans" become once they grow up?
