HEIMAT IS A SPACE IN TIME awarded by German Film Critics

Monday, 24. February 2020

HEIMAT IST EIN RAUM AUS ZEIT was awarded the German Film Critics’ Prize for Best Documentary Film! We are over the moon and celebrate with our director Thomas Heise.

The jury’s statement:
“Am Anfang stehen ein paar in die Jahre gekommenen Figuren in einem Märchenwald und der Verweis auf eine Legende. Auch das, was folgt, war einmal, aber anders als die Legenden gehört es in den Raum gelebter – und auch erlittener – Geschichte. Diese Geschichte ist die Familiengeschichte des Filmemachers Thomas Heise. Anhand von Dokumenten aus seinem persönlichen Archiv folgt er über vier Generationen ihren Spuren zwischen Wien, Dresden und (Ost-) Berlin. Er selbst nennt es so: aus Scherben ein Bild machen. Der Film lässt uns in dieses so momenthafte wie gewaltige Bild eintreten und es mit und durch die Figuren als etwas sehr Gegenwärtiges erleben. „Man kann sich die Geschichte länglich denken, Sie ist aber ein Haufen“, heißt es in einem anderen Erinnerungsfilm von Heise. Der Gedanke setzt sich fort. „Heimat ist ein Raum aus Zeit“ macht Geschichte als Bewegung, Riss, Schichtung und zerklüftete Landschaft erfahrbar – und als einen Raum, der sich zwischen Stimmen, Bildern, Tönen, zwischen Schreiben, Lesen, Denken, Hören und Sehen aufspannt. “

The Cave

Thursday, 28. November 2019

Documentary / Syria / Denmark / Germany / USA / Qatar / 2019 / 95′

Oscar nominee Feras Fayyad („Last Men in Aleppo”) delivers an unflinching story of the Syrian war with his powerful new documentary. For besieged civilians, hope and safety lie underground inside the subterranean hospital known as the cave, where pediatrician and managing physician Dr. Amani Ballour and her colleagues Samaher and Dr. Alaa have claimed their right to work as equals alongside their male counterparts, doing their jobs in a way that would be unthinkable in the oppressively patriarchal culture that exists above. Following the women as they contend with daily bombardments, chronic supply shortages and the ever-present threat of chemical attacks, THE CAVE paint a stirring portrait of courage, resilience and female solidarity.

A documentary by Feras Fayyad. A production of Danish Documentary, in co-production with Filmproduktions GmbH. In association with National Geographic, TV 2 and SWR. Supported by DOHA, Sun Yat-Sen Cultural Foundation, International Media Support, The Danish Film Institute Development, Docs Up Fund, Normandie for Peace
