The Berlinale Outdoors in the Summertime

By now it’s almost a tradition: for the seventh season in a row, the riedrichshain Open-Air Cinema, in cooperation with radio eins, will be showing some of the highlights of this year’s Berlin International Film Festival in the Summer Berlinale from July 16 to 19. The heads of the Berlinale sections Wieland Speck (Panorama), Christoph Terhechte (Forum), Maryanne Redpath and Florian Weghorn (Generation), as well as programme manager Thomas Hailer will present the selected films.

Happy and in love, Thomas and Hanna arrive in the country where they will be spending the summer together in their new house. But then Thomas’ brother Friedrich, whose wife and child just left him, unexpectedly shows up. Shortly thereafter, young Augustine arrives for a visit, and the couple finds first their love and loyalty and finally their respect tested to the limit.

The culture jammers from 2004 (The Yes Men) have embarked on a new adventure. Investigative journalism was never this entertaining! “Lawyers do battle before a court of law, trade unionists in the world of work, and we do what we do (…),” says director Andy Bichlbaum.

Crystal Bear at the 59th Berlinale.
Archie is a world-weary teenager with a well-equipped computer in his room and a penchant for making mindfuck films by editing together thousands of short clips. When Archie announces his intention to stage his own death in front of the camera, his classmates, teachers, psychologists and doctors literally pounce on him. Archie does not let any of it pass him by and films the entire hullabaloo as it rages around him.
