When a Farm Goes Aflame, the Flakes Fly Home to Bear the Tale by Jide Tom Akinleminu (Berlinale Talents 2018)
When the Danish-Nigerian filmmaker sets out to make a documentary about his allegedly lonely father in Nigeria, he discovers that his father has been leading a double life.
The family secret can be traced far back into the past – it begins with Nigeria’s struggle for independence – and spans three continents: Africa, Europe, and America.
We are looking forward to seeing this moving, multi-layered film
Blutsauger by Julian Radlmaier (Perspektive Deutsches Kino 2017).
Under the guise of a vampire film, Julian Radlmaier’s Blutsauger is an elegant German comedy that provides a both amusing and biting commentary on the global rise of nationalism.
As embodiment of the perspective of German cinema, the Kompagnon-Fellowship wants to support Julian Radlmaier in his efforts to get his unmistakable signature style out into the world.
