IC 02: In search of solid ground


— DEU–

Auf dem schmalen Grat zwischen Wut und Verzweiflung: Manchmal ist der Bogen überspannt, wir brechen aus und folgen dem Impuls unserer Emotionen. Eine rasante Autofahrt, eine Flucht aus familiären Zwängen oder der Schmerz in allen Sinnen. In urbaner Dichte und seelischer Befreiung erzählen diese Filme nicht nur von beengten Situationen, sondern auch von Stärke und Kraft, um sich diversen Schieflagen zu widersetzen.



Tracing the thin line between anger and desperation: sometimes we get wound up too tight, till we explode and follow the impulses generated by our emotions. A drive at breakneck speed, an escape from the confines of family, or pain pushing in through all five senses. Characterised by urban density and spiritual liberation, these films tell of more than just constricting circumstances – they also feature tales of strength and resilience in overcoming diverse types of adversity.


Program: 7 films
