sleep furiously.

sleep furiously. (2011)

Starring:

Sleep Furiously is set in a small farming community in mid Wales, about 50 miles north of Dylan Thomas' fictional village of Llareggub - and there is a sense in which this is a film 'for' Dylan Thomas, if not a contemporary translation of 'Under Milk Wood'. This is a place where Koppel's parents - both refugees - found a home. It is a landscape and population that is changing rapidly as small scale agriculture is disappearing and the generation who inhabited a pre-mechanised world is dying out. Much influenced by his conversations with the writer Peter Handke, the film maker leads us on a poetic and profound journey into a world of endings and beginnings; a world of stuffed owls, sheep and fire. Allied to a soundtrack by the revered electronic musician Aphex Twin sleep furiously is lyrical film making at its best. -- (C) Official Site

Nuremberg

Nuremberg (2010)

Starring:

Commissioned by Pare Lorentz, head of Film, Theatre & Music at the U.S. War Department's Civil Affairs Division, NUREMBERG was written and directed by Stuart Schulberg, a veteran of John Ford's Office of Strategic Services (OSS) Field Photographic Branch/War Crimes Unitthat was charged in 1945 with locating Nazi film evidence to be shown in the courtroom at Nuremberg. This monumental film documents the first historic Nuremberg trial* and shows how international prosecutors built their case against the top Nazi war criminals using the Nazis' own films and records. The trial established the "Nuremberg Principles," laying the foundation for all subsequent trials for war crimes and crimes against peace and humanity - which continue to unfold in the news today. For complex political reasons, NUREMBERG was never released to U.S. theaters, although it was widely shown throughout Germany in 1948 and 1949 as part of the Allies' de-Nazification campaign. Pare Lorentz's efforts to purchase the film from the U.S. government in order to release it himself were rebuffed in a controversial decision by Truman administration officials that came to light in 1949. A Washington Poststory headlined "Army Reluctant To Clarify Inaction On Nuernberg Film" (Sept 19, 1949), interpreted the Pentagon's opposition as follows: "...there are those in authority in the United States who feel that Americans are so simple that they can hate only one enemy at a time. Forget the Nazis, they advise, and concentrate on the Reds." Opposition to the film's release also arose from Hollywood. The restoration team found a letter from the head of public relations for Universal Pictures, who wrote: "I personally feel that [the picture] certainly has no place at this, or any other time, in general theatre distribution for the entertainment seeking public...The subject matter and the way it is treated is altogether too gruesome to stomach - and I mean that literally." And so, the movie was shelved, and over the years the original picture negative and sound elements were lost or destroyed. In 2003, Stuart Schulberg's children discovered numerous documents about the making of NUREMBERG and the controversy surrounding it in their mother's apartment, along with a print of the film. A year later, daughter Sandra Schulberg began to inventory the documents and invited two Holocaust scholars, Ronny Loewy and Raye Farr, to examine them. It became clear they were extremely important and previously unknown. She began a five-year effort to assemble a team and raise the necessary funds to restore the 78-minute 35mm film. Schulberg's older brother Budd, a senior officer on the same OSS team and also a protege of John Ford, supervised the compilation of evidentiary footage into two films for the U.S. prosecution team to use. The first film was The Nazi Plan,which consists of the German Reich's own films and photographs of genocide and military aggression. The second film was Nazi Concentration Camps, which used footage shot by Allied forces in the spring of 1945 when they liberated the Nazi concentration camps. Stuart Schulberg's NUREMBERG interweaves the courtroom proceedings with excerpts from these two films to reconstruct the basis for the four counts of the indictment. Sandra Schulberg and Josh Waletzky created a new 35mm negative (made from the best existing print at the German National Film Archive) and re-constructed the soundtrack using original sound from the trial. The Schulberg/Waletzky restoration allows audiences to hear Justice Robert H. Jackson's famous opening and closing statements to the Tribunal, and the testimony of German defendants and their defense attorneys - all in their own voices - as well as bits from the English, Russian and French prosecutors. Now, more than 60 years later, the newly-restored film can be seen and properly heard for the first time. The film ends with Justice Jackson's stirring words: "Let Nuremberg stand as a warning to all who plan and wage aggressive war." -- (C) Film Forum

Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen

Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen (2011)

Starring: Donnie Yen, Qi Shu, Anthony Wong

Legendary Kung Fu hero Chen Zhen is an iconic cultural mainstay in China and Hong Kong, having spawned both record-breaking feature films and a TV series. Over the years, martial arts legends such as Bruce Lee (FIST OF FURY) and Jet Li (FIST OF LEGEND) have played the popular hero. In LEGEND OF THE FIST: THE RETURN OF CHEN ZHEN, Donnie Yen continues this rich historical legacy, but with a brand new take on the urban legend. In 1920s China, the nation is divided by infighting. Japan has become the most powerful force in Asia, taking over Northern Shanghai. With the city torn in half by international conflict, the popular nightclub "Casablanca" has become a hotbed of spies, mobsters, English officials and the Japanese military- all looking to gain control of the country, with little regard for what happens to its citizens. Into this den of intrigue enters Chen Zhen (Donnie Yen), who has returned to China after fighting alongside the Allied forces in Europe, bringing some dark secrets from his past along with him. During the day, he's known as "Ku", and appears to be just another wealthy playboy. But at night, he takes to the street as a masked warrior, determined to subvert the Japanese invasion while becoming entangled with the sultry Kiki (Played by Shu Qi), who has a dangerous secret of her own. When his past catches up to him, Zhen is faced with near impossible odds- but his skills are formidable, and he's up to the challenge. Combining the best of today's martial arts and superhero action with the classic spy thrillers of the past (and a healthy dollop of film noir on top), LEGEND OF THE FIST is the rare action film that truly gives the audience something they've never seen before. --(c) Variance

Last Letters From Monte Rosa

Last Letters From Monte Rosa (2010)

Starring: Thomas Pohn,Fabio Sartor,Dirk Schmidt,Nicola Tranquillino,Sergio Leone

Based on letters found 50 years after the end of World War II, LAST LETTERS FROM MONTE ROSA is the story of the final days of a doomed German army platoon waiting out the end of the war in Northern Italy. It's 1944 and Lieutenant Bruchner (Thomas Pohn) leads a German reserve defensive unit hemmed in by guerrilla attacks from Italian partisans and desperate for food supplies and reinforcements from Mussolini's remaining loyalists. Hungry, filthy, and demoralized, the Germans suffer constant threat from the local partisans and allied bombings almost daily. Yet when the Italian reinforcements of Lieutenant Gianini (Fabio Sartor) arrive, they are reluctant to fight against fellow Italians in a war that many of them already see as a lost cause. A sobering look at at the final days of those who fought on the wrong side of history, LAST LETTERS FROM MONTE ROSA explores the differences in the values, morals, and patriotism of a very different era. -- (C) Indie Screen

Zwischen Welten (Inbetween Worlds)

Zwischen Welten (Inbetween Worlds) (2014)

Starring:

Jesper is a soldier in the German army. Although his brother was killed whilst serving in Afghanistan, he nevertheless reports for a new tour of duty in this war zone. He and his unit are to protect a remote village from the Taliban. One of the people accompanying Jesper is a young interpreter, Tarik, whose job includes mediating between soldiers and villagers.

Jesper must gain the trust of both villagers and the allied Arbaki militia and his nerves are soon on edge. He finds himself increasingly morally conflicted as a result of his superiors' orders. His association with the Germans means Tarik's life is constantly under threat, but when Tarik begins to fear for his sister's safety, Jesper has to make a decision. Feo Aladag uses this portrait of an ISAF soldier in Afghanistan to explore questions of affinity and otherness, trust and failure. How humane can your actions be if you are bound by the workings of a strict military bureaucracy? What remains of the ideals of human dignity when you are caught up in a daily struggle for survival?

Elusive Justice: The Search for Nazi War Criminals

Elusive Justice: The Search for Nazi War Criminals (2011)

Starring: Candice Bergen

At the end of WWII the Allies declared the Nazi party a criminal organization, and pledged to prosecute and punish the architects and triggermen of genocide. It was an ambitious pledge: several hundred thousand Gestapo, SS, and Wehrmacht forces had engaged in war crimes and atrocities against civilians. But only a few thousand Nazi criminals and collaborators were convicted at the Nuremberg trials. This paled with the legions who evaded prosecution by concealing their war records, assuming false identities, fleeing Europe, or serving Allied governments as spies or scientists. In the absence of an international manhunt and centralized prosecution, the task of bringing Nazi criminals to justice was undertaken by a handful of individuals-acting without official status or government support. These so-called Nazi hunters collectively identified and brought to justice thousands of Nazi criminals. In the process, the Nazi hunters gave a measure of dignity to the dead and reminded the international community that enemies of humanity must be punished--if humanity is to survive. Narrated by Candice Bergen, this is an unprecedented examination of the six-decade global hunt for the 20th century's greatest criminals. Featuring intimate portraits of the Nazi hunters, the film also examines the nations and institutions that helped bring war criminals to justice-or, in too many cases, helped them to escape.
