WHERE NO ONE KNOWS US / EIN BISSCHEN BLEIBEN WIR NOCH: Awards
@ International Film Festival Schlingel

Jurybegründung:
"Es gibt dieses Jahr zwei Kinder, die so gut waren und die so untrennbar miteinander verbunden sind, dass man beiden den Preis Ex-Equo vergeben muss. Wonach sucht man bei besten Darstellerinnen? Natürlich nach den besonderen Feinheiten in der darstellerischen Leistung, nach Überraschungen, die vielleicht noch nicht erwartet werden von jungen oder sehr jungen Akteuren, also das Besondere in der großen Anzahl guter Darbietungen die wir ja gesehen haben in diesen 13 Filmen, die in diesem Jahr zur Auswahl standen. Pragmatisch, gewitzt und selbstbewusst, rational, teils überrational für sein Alter spielt Leopold Palua seinen Oskar in dem Film Ein bisschen bleiben wir noch. Er versteht es mit teilweise ganz kleinen Gesten große emotionale Spannungsbögen glaubhaft zu machen. Oft erzeugt er mit seiner Darstellung des weise abwägenden Jungen ein kleines Lächeln beim Zuschauer andererseits aber auch eine Betroffenheit für seine Figur und deren altersuntypische Abgeklärtheit. eine Partnerin im Film, seine Schwester Rosa Zant hingegen gestaltet ihre Lili zart und zurückhaltend. Beobachtend blickt sie auf die Ereignisse um sie herum. Ihre Mimik ist fähig zu Blicken voller Verlorenheit aber auch zu Blicken voller Hoffnung. Zum anderen und das ist besonders beeindruckend beherrscht sie darstellerisch aber auch den großen Gefühlsausbruch ohne Überzeichnung und ohne falsches Pathos und rührt und ergreift damit den Zuschauer. Doch nicht nur das Spiel von Rosa und Leopold allein in ihren Szenen sondern zu vorderst das Zusammen und Wechselspiel der beiden in ihren gemeinsamen Szenen prägt Ein bisschen bleiben wir noch und verleiht dem Film einen wesentlichen Anteil seiner Wirkung und seines Tiefgangs. Für ihre berührenden und komplexen Verkörperungen der Geschwister Oskar und Lilli im Film Ein bisschen bleiben wir noch von Arash T. Riahi gehen zwei Diamanten an Rosa Zant und Leopold Palua."

Statement of Jury:
"There are two children this year who have been so good and who are so inseparable that both have to be awarded the Ex-Equo award. What do you look for in the best actresses? Of course, the special subtleties in acting, surprises that are perhaps not yet expected from young or very young actors, so what is special about the large number of good performances that we have seen in these 13 films that were up for selection this year. Pragmatic, clever and self-confident, rational, sometimes supra-rational for his age, Leopold Palua plays his Oscar in the film Where No One Knows Us. He knows how to make big emotional tensions credible with sometimes very small gestures. With his portrayal of the wise, calculating boy, he often creates a small smile in the audience, but on the other hand he also creates a sense of consternation for his character and its age-untypical serenity. One of the partners in the film, his sister Rosa Zant, on the other hand, makes her Lili tender and reserved. Observing, she looks at the events around her. Her facial expressions are capable of glances full of loss but also glances full of hope. On the other hand, and this is particularly impressive, she masters the great outburst of emotion without exaggeration and without false pathos and thus moves and grips the audience. But not only the play of Rosa and Leopold alone in their scenes, but also the interaction and interplay of the two in their joint scenes are the main characteristics of the film. For their touching and complex embodiments of the siblings Oskar and Lilli in the film Where No One Knows Us by Arash T. Riahi two diamonds go to Rosa Zant and Leopold Palua."

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?
