PARADISE(S) LOST… AND FOUND
First up tonight, Medienwerkstatt Berlin introduces their smorgasbord of possibilities. If you’re looking for better ways to get your creative juices out of the glass and into a presentable, produced form, don’t look further… be there at 18:00 (6:00 pm). Then festival director Levent Arslan and our compatriots from the International Short Film Festival Detmold (ISFF) show why this film fe(a)st draws such crowds, with the cream of their crop on the screen at 19:30 (7:30 pm). Dalia Huerta Cano (Mexico) then asks the cinematic question “¿Olvida Usted Algo?” in European Premiere… objects shift space and meaning in this short film at 21:00 (9:00 pm). Following the voyage, DL Selection IV brings another sackful of World Premieres: Mihai Grecu and Thibault Gleize (Romania), Pablo Chavarría Gutiérrez (Mexico), Oded Arad in attendance (Israel) and Karl F. Stewart (US/Germany) all give [DL9] the honour of screening their new films here first, alongside further European and German Premieres tonight at 21:30 (9:30 pm). Last up, putting a manic, dysfunctional family where they belong (on the screen), “Paradise East” by Nick Taylor (USA, in attendance) takes over as DL Night Movie. Here, you’ll meet an unhinged dad and his even more unhinged sons, crazy ladies and a minister you’ll not likely forget. Valentine’s Day with a twist (and the twisted). Compare notes and feel better about your own family with this pitch black comedy starting at 23:00 (11:00 pm). The best way to spend an evening “at home”!
