On the eve of his 90th birthday, life hangs by a thread for Antoine as he anticipates the visit of his daughter gone on a journey to South America, while his wife for 65 years, Viviane, also suffering from the aches of old age, endures an excruciating double sentencing: dealing with her daughter’s tragic death, and, concealing this unbearable truth from her husband - truth that would inevitably end the last beats of his fragile heart.

"Dream Away”

 

by Marouan Omara & Johanna Domke

 

Feature Documentary | Germany, Egypt | 86 Mins | 2018

 

Recent terror attacks have brought tourism in Sharm El Sheikh to a halt. We follow a group of young workers in a luxury hotel compound, holding onto the town despite the lack of tourists. Returning home is not an option, as they have absorbed the liberal life-style and experience the difficulty of fitting back into their own culture. Sharm El Sheikh has been for a long time a dream destination for young Egyptians, representing a place of freedom and easy money.

"The Best Thing You Can Do With Your Life”

 

by Zita Erffa

 

Feature Documentary | Germany, Mexico | 93 Mins | 2018

 

'The Best Thing You Can Do with Your Life' is a film about two people who love each other, but haven't been in contact for a long time. Eight years ago my brother surprisingly joined the order of the Legionaries of Christ to become a priest. As kids we were sent to the summer camps of the Legionaries. It was the best time of the year, but at the same time the order was kind of strange. Almost like a sect. We knew: they would never get us!
