Filme von Derek Jarman

Sorry, this ent­ry is only avail­ab­le in German.

80 Jahre alt wäre der Maler, Autor, Regisseur und poli­ti­sche Aktivist Derek Jarman am 31.1.22 gewor­den. Er starb 1986 an den Folgen sei­ner AIDS-Erkrankung, die er auch in sei­nen Filmen zur Sprache brach­te. BLUE, sein letz­ter und for­mal wohl extrems­ter Film, wur­de von der Krankheit, durch die er erblin­de­te, bestimmt. Die Ton- Musik- und Sprechcollage vor mono­chrom blau­er Leinwand ist poli­tisch und per­sön­lich, poe­tisch und dis­kur­siv zugleich.

Jarmans Filme gel­ten als radi­kal, zor­nig und enga­giert. Er führ­te einen ste­ti­gen Kampf gegen die Thatcher-Regierung und zeig­te sich hier­bei als Queer- und AIDS-Aktivist, aber sein Thema war vor allem auch die Liebe, beson­ders die ver­hin­der­te, und körperliche.

Wir zei­gen sechs sei­ner Werke, die neu restau­riert und digi­ta­li­siert wur­den. Dazu gibt eine Doku über ihn, von Regisseur Julien Isaac und Tilda Swinton, die ohne Jarman nicht zu den­ken wäre (und umge­kehrt), und in allen sechs Filme mitwirkt:

Caravaggio (1986, 93‘), der bio­gra­fi­sche Ausschnitt vom ita­lie­ni­schen Maler ist wohl sein bekann­tes­tes Werk. (21.1. 17:45) [Tickets]

The Garden (1990, 95‘) ist eine sinn­li­che, sub­jek­ti­ve, schwu­le Passionsgeschichte mit Garten-nahem Atomkraftwerk.(22.1. 17:45) [Tickets]

Edward II (1991, 90‘) hat bei Jarman einen etwas ande­ren Stand als bei Mel Gibson seinerzeit.(23.1. 17:45) [Tickets]

Wittgenstein (1993, 75‘) – „hei­te­re, dia­log­si­che­re, her­vor­ra­gend gespiel­te Gesamtschau auf das Leben eines phi­lo­so­phi­schen Außenseiters“ (Lexikon des intern. Films) (24.1. 17:45) [Tickets]

War Requiem (1989, 92‘) ist die fil­mi­sche Umsetzung Benjamins Brittons Musikstücks, mit Laurence Olivier in sei­ner letz­ten Rolle. (25.1. 17:45) [Tickets]

a film by Sabrina Sarabi. Starts January 20th at the fsk. In German with English subtitles.

[Credits] [Tickets & Termine] [Trailer]

It‘s high sum­mer in the midd­le of nowhe­re, Mecklenburg, Germany. Five houses, one bus stop, cows, and not­hing but fiel­ds. Twenty-four-year-old Christin (Saskia Rosendahl) lives on the farm of her long-term boy­friend Jan, twen­ty-five (Rick Okon). The exci­ting post-reuni­fi­ca­ti­on years that defi­ned her child­hood are long gone.
Her rela­ti­ons­hip is lov­eless. Her father drinks. Christin, too, keeps the cher­ry liqueur under her car seat. In the shim­me­ring heat of sum­mer, time seems to stand still – until for­ty-six-year-old wind ener­gy engi­neer Klaus (Godehard Giese) arri­ves from Hamburg and sets the world spin­ning again.

Drive my car

a film by Ryûsuke Hamaguchi. In Japanese with German subtitles.

[Credits] [Tickets & Termine] [Trailer]

2021 has been an annus mira­bi­lis for Ryusuke Hamaguchi, who has pre­mie­red two fea­ture films, both very dif­fe­rent, both equal­ly mas­ter­ly. After the the­ma­ti­cal­ly con­nec­ted tri­ptych of WHEEL OF FORTUNE AND FANTASY, Hamaguchi del­ves into more expan­si­ve­ly nove­listic ter­ri­to­ry, alt­hough the source is a short sto­ry by Haruki Murakami.
An exten­ded pre­face intro­du­ces us to a Tokyo cou­p­le, actor and direc­tor Yusuke and screen­wri­ter Oto, who­se pen­chant for ero­tic sto­ry­tel­ling hints at pos­si­bi­li­ties that will con­ti­nue to trou­ble Yusuke. Two years later, he arri­ves in Hiroshima to direct Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya at a theat­re fes­ti­val and is assi­gned a young woman named Misaki as his dri­ver. After a trou­bled rehe­ar­sal pro­cess and Yusuke’s pro­blems with a trou­ble­so­me young actor, Yusuke and the initi­al­ly reser­ved Misaki begin to com­mu­ni­ca­te.
A three-hour run­ning time allows Hamaguchi to unspool a sub­t­ly, den­se­ly pat­ter­ned nar­ra­ti­ve to maxi­mum effect, with Chekhov’s dra­ma sub­li­mi­nal­ly reso­na­ting as a back­ground sub­text. Quietly moving, intel­lec­tual­ly invol­ving, DRIVE MY CAR is argu­ab­ly the most matu­re and most ele­gant dra­ma of 2021. (Jonathan Romney)

First Cow

A Film by Kelly Reichardt. In English with German subtitles.

[Credits] [Tickets & Termine] [Trailer]

The waters of a river flow pla­cid­ly by. On its banks, time rewinds, brin­ging buried sto­ries to light. At the begin­ning of the 19th cen­tu­ry, fur trap­pers are not the only ones to ven­ture into the wilds of Oregon; there’s also a taci­turn cook, a loner who finds an able entre­pre­neur and friend in a Chinese immi­grant. The two start a small tra­de in “oily cakes”, which turns out to be a gre­at suc­cess in the rough West. The only catch: the raw mate­ri­al they use is acqui­red ille­gal­ly. Director Kelly Reichardt co-wro­te the screen­play with Jonathan Raymond, aut­hor of the novel upon which the film is based. First Cow con­firms her talent for tel­ling sto­ries of an America fil­led with pro­mi­se, far from the big cities. Like a Western, the film pays tri­bu­te to cha­rac­ters on the mar­gins of socie­ty who must take desti­ny into their own hands – only here, ins­tead of guns, there’s a spoon­ful of honey and a pail of milk. Thus, the­se out­laws pre­sent the fron­tier, that screen onto which America pro­jects its natio­nal dreams, not as a place of eco­no­mic or mate­ri­al con­quest, but as a mee­ting place. A sple­ndid alter­na­ti­ve sce­n­a­rio, which today acqui­res par­ti­cu­lar civil and poli­ti­cal significance.
