And tomorrow the entire world

A film by Julia von Heinz

2020 - Germany - Drama - 2.39

When Luisa leaves her wealthy parents to study law, her best friend introduces her to a rag-tag collective of Antifa activists drawn together by their will to fight for the cause and a disdain of conventions. In their mission to halt the continued rise of neo-Nazis across Germany, the group quickly comes to a crossroad: Does combatting hate justify violence? As Luisa struggles to understand whether her actions are motivated by personal allegiances or political convictions, she and the group must decide what to do when the ideological fight against fascism becomes concrete.

No More Fear

A film by Mourad Ben Cheikh

2011 - Tunisia - Documentary - 1.85 DCP - 74 min.

After the self-immolation of a street seller, the people of Tunisia started a revolution that would give an end to 24 years of dictatorship of President Ben Ali and gave birth to the Arab Spring Revolutions. It was not a Jasmine revolution as Jasmine does not result in death - rather the cry of despair rising from a generation of graduates. We shall never again have any fear for this new Tunisia. This film is a testimony and a tribute to the people of Tunisia.

On the French Polynesian island of Tahiti, the High Commissioner of the Republic and French government official DE ROLLER is a calculating man with flawless manners. His somewhat broad perception of his role brings him to navigate the high end ’establishment’ as well as shady venues where he mingles with the locals. Especially since a persistent rumor has been going around: the sighting of a submarine whose ghostly presence could herald the return of French nuclear testing.
