The footage of this film was taken in Beijing between 2001 to 2005. It shows several snippets of trivial ordinary and accidental things that happen every day outside in the streets. By seing bits of daily life in the film, perhaps we can see our real life, its commonness, its unexpected and so on...

My Journey To Iraq

• Usama Alshaibi US/IQ Nice Bombs 92 min, DV, 2006

Nice Bombs shows filmmaker Usama Alshaibi as he returns to Baghdad to reunite with his family after nearly 24 years. This documentary navigates through his unique relationship to an Iraq that is much different than the country of his childhood.
Usama captures the conflicting reactions to the conditions of life in Baghdad.
Through a wide range of opinions and experiences he provides a broad panorama of voices long neglected under Saddam’s regime.
His cousin Tareef enters the room upon hearing an explosion. “It’s a bomb. A Nice Bomb,” he explains. The phrase is indicative of his family’s nonchalance about their situation. As one young boy put it, “We’re Iraqis. It’s normal.” With humor and resilience Nice Bombs explores Usama’s dual role as both Iraqi and American. more

• 22 h • 10 pmDiavortrag Ein Remake-Experiment von Cosima Reif

Junge Wiener

13 1/2 Jahre nach Falco's JUNGE RÖMER ist es an der Zeit, auch mal junge
Wiener zu loben. Natürlich auch zu tadeln. Sowohl Präpotenz (welch schönes
wienierisches Wort) als auch Genialität, die jungen Wienern aus den Augen
blitzen könnte, wird natürlich von den alten Wienern beargwöhnt, deshalb
besser versteckt. Man muß also die Zeichen, die junge Wiener aussenden, zu
interpretieren wissen. Das ist, worum es geht.

13 1/2 years after Falco's JUNGE RÖMER (Young Romans) it is about time to flatter the young Viennese. Prepotenz (such a charming Viennese term)
as well as ingenuity, that may sparkle in the eyes of the young Viennese lads,
is suspected by the elderly and therefor hidden. Thus making it necessary to construe the subliminal signs of the Vienna boys. That´s what it´s all about.
