KØPIkino Peliculoso - Programm
"Lost Highway" USA 1997, 129 min, R.: David Lynch, D.: Giovanni Ribisi, Jack Nance, Bill PullmanMordes an seiner Frau verurteilt, nimmt aber im Gefängnis die Gestalt eines anderen an. Schwer zu enträtselnder Psycho-Thriller-Alptraum, in dem David Lynch Motive früherer Filme konsequent weiterführt.
"Dodes'ka-den" JPN 1970, 140 min, R.: Akira KurosawaBy turns tragic and transcendent, Akira Kurosawa’s film follows the daily lives of a group of people barely scraping by in a slum on the outskirts of Tokyo. Yet as desperate as their circumstances are, each of them—the homeless father and son envisioning their dream house; the young woman abused by her uncle; the boy who imagines himself a trolley conductor—finds reasons to carry on. The unforgettable Dodes’ka-den was made at a tumultuous moment in Kurosawa’s life. And all of his hopes, fears, and artistic passion are on fervent display in this, his gloriously shot first color film.
"Dogville" DNK 2003, 170 min, R.: Lars von Trier, D.: Nicole Kidman, Udo Kier, Philip Baker Hall
Eine Frau auf der Flucht gerät in einer Kleinstadt in Colorado in eine ganz besondere Situation. Außergewöhnliches, in einer Bühnen-Deko artifiziell gestaltetes Drama
POLYLAND gives a voice to three strong female characters from different minorities in Poland and explores the nuances of how it feels to be black, Muslim or LGBTQ+ in the most homogenous country in an ever more right -leaning Europe. POLYLAND's three women were all born in Poland and currently are citizens of Wroclaw, the biggest city in Western Poland. Ania, Miriam and Elmelda seek to be seen, not as “the other”, but as a part of Polish society.
Their efforts involve creating self-help groups, organizing protests and appearances on local TV and… Everything appears to be going towards the right direction, the women believe that a liberal society is within reach until the dramatic shift in Polish politics in 2015 shatters their hopes and confidence.
Their wish for belonging reflects many other stories across the world and seems increasingly difficult to achieve in the current political climate of Brexit, Donald Trump and the upsurge of right-wing movement across Europe.
"The Lost Weekend" USA 1945, 96 min, R.: Billy Wilder, D.: Ray Milland, Howard da Silva, Frank FaylenDas entscheidende Wochenende eines alkoholkranken Schriftstellers. Eindrucksvolles, atmosphärisches Film-Noir-Drama. Teilweise an authentischen Schauplätzen in den Straßen New Yorks gedreht, was damals eher ungewöhnlich war.
