    « Historical drama starring Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan. The film follows a young Allen Ginsberg (Radcliffe) while he is attending Columbia University in 1944 and shows how the relationship he formed with his charismatic fellow student Lucien Carr (DeHaan) would pave the way for the Beat Generation of the 1950s. Through his friendship with Carr, who is the unwilling love interest of the much older David Kammerer (Michael C. Hall), Ginsberg is introduced to other aspiring writers William Burroughs (Ben Foster) and Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) and the four young men take a hedonistic foray through New York seeking out inspiration while experimenting in all aspects of their lives. Unaware of the tumultuous path they have created for themselves, a difficult and unforeseen event will bring the group even closer together and mould them into the best minds of their generation. »

    „Wie zeigt man die Gedanken eines Philosophen im Film? Und zwar so, dass der Sinnlichkeit des Films entsprochen wird, ohne an Substanz zu verlieren? Isabella Gresser hat eine Möglichkeit gefunden, indem sie die abstrakten Gedanken von Byung-Chul Han aus seinem Bestseller "Müdigkeitsgesellschaft" mit Film- und Videokunst verbindet."

    « Ein Polizist (Janusz Gajos), mit verstorbener Frau und essgestörter erwachsener Tochter (Justyna Suwała) trifft jeden Tag auf brutal zugerichtete Tote: ein Selbstmord am Strick, ein auf der öffentlichen Toilette geborenes und zerstückeltes Baby. Den Körper der Tochter findet der Polizist abends nackt vor dem Klo, zwischen Erbrochenem und Pillen. Er selbst trinkt zu viel Alkohol, wofür ihn Ola, die Tochter, verabscheut. In der Klinik für Essstörungen, in die er sie fährt – das fünfte Mal – machen klapperdürre Mädchen Schrei-, Tanz-, und Körpertherapie. Der Körper – Body – taucht im Film also in verschiedensten Formen auf. Tot, lebendig, kaputt, schwach, stark und transzendent: letzteres in Form der Körpertherapeutin Ania (Maja Ostaszewska), die als Medium auch Tote wieder sprechen lässt. Jeder ist irgendwie stark und schwach zugleich, jeder kämpft. So ist in Body das Leben. Schwierig, schmutzig, traurig, zum Lachen oder: lustig. Ciało wurde auf der Berlinale mit dem Silbernen Bären für die beste Regie ausgezeichnet. »

    « De nombreux chercheurs – parmi lesquels le psychiatre Christophe André, ainsi que le moine bouddhiste et docteur en biologie cellulaire Matthieu Ricard, qui joue obligeamment les cobayes – témoignent et font partager leurs expériences les plus récentes, avec le renfort d'images en 3D et d'infographies. Après des millénaires d'évolution, les experts l'affirment: l'intelligence humaine serait sur le déclin. Le film dévoile aussi progressivement le fonctionnement de notre intelligence, le rôle des neurones, de la myéline, des astrocytes, un environnement bien plus sophistiqué et complexe que ce que mesure le QI. Comme l'explique le philosophe Josef Schovanec, la créativité, en particulier, transcende notre intelligence rationnelle, et ouvre de larges horizons. »

    « In der digitalen Gesellschaft werden wir zu gläsernen Menschen: Mit jedem Klick, mit jedem Telefonat, mit jedem im Internet bestellten Buch, jeder Kartenzahlung oder Videoload werden Menschen transparent und hinterlassen überall digitale Fingerabdrücke. Spätestens seit Edward Snowdens Enthüllungen ist klar, dass sich die Welt im Datenrausch befindet und die persönlichsten Informationen von uns allen zur Ressource geworden sind: Daten sind das Öl des 21. Jahrhunderts. Wer sie hat, hat das Geld und damit die Macht! Doch wer kontrolliert diesen Zugriff auf private Daten? Und was bedeutet das für die Gesellschaft? Regisseur David Bernet öffnet die Türen zu einer schier undurchdringlichen Welt. Zum ersten Mal in der Geschichte der EU konnte ein Filmteam so tief ins Innere der EU vordringen und die Entstehung eines Gesetzes filmisch begleiten. Bernet begleitet unter anderem in Brüssel, im Herzen der EU, die konservative EU-Kommissarin Viviane Reding und den jungen, ambitionierten Grünen-Abgeordneten Jan Philipp Albrecht (MdEP) bei ihrem Kampf um ein europäisches Datenschutzgesetz - ein Gesetz, das jede Form von Datentransfer schützen soll. Lobbyisten, Wirtschaftsjuristen und Aktivisten treten auf den Plan und versuchen Einfluss zu nehmen. Ein Ringen wie bei David gegen Goliath beginnt: Bürgerrechte versus Wirtschaftsinteressen. »

    «The indie movie’s title is Mexican slang for those with light skin, such as the middle-class protagonists featured. It's set in 1999, in Mexico City, when the students rebel against the university. It opens in the coastal city of Vera Cruz, as the light-skinned 13-year-old Tomás has dropped a water balloon from his rooftop onto the head of a passing stranger. His dark-skinned mom thereby sends the troubled kid to Mexico City to live with his more mature university student older brother Sombra. Sombra is a withdrawn scholar, who refuses to aid his fellow students in their demonstrations against the school administration. He lives in a filthy high-rise apartment with his roommate, Santos. Ana is the politically committed to the student cause radio DJ Tomás has a futile crush on, as he welcomes the protest movement with open arms to impress her. These three are all gueros and are curious about the legendary (fictional) Bob Dylan-like protest singer Epigmenio Cruz of the 1960s, who has mysteriously vanished. His music was soothing to Tomás as a child.The melodrama turns into a road movie, as during the student strike the foursome of Ana, the roommates and the brothers, drive aimlessly around at a leisurely pace hoping to track down the reclusive legend.»

    « Documentary about global warming and two regions united by a gloomily common destiny despite being 20,000km apart, isn’t the aggressive polemic you might have hoped for—but is, perhaps, all the better for it. Dividing his time equally between the inhabitants of Thule, Greenland, and those of Tuvalu in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, von Gunten accumulates two absorbing pictures of daily life, highlighting cultural similarities between the people residing in these appreciably contrasting paradises. »

    « A festival favourite with critics and audiences all over the world, A World Not Ours is an intimate, humorous portrait of three generations in exile in the refugee camp of Ein el-Helweh in southern Lebanon. Based on a wealth of personal recordings, family archives, and historical footage, the film is a sensitive and illuminating study of belonging, friendship and family. Filmed over more than 20 years by multiple generations of director Mahdi Fleifel’s family, A World Not Ours is more than just a family portrait; it is an attempt to record what is being forgotten, and mark what should not be erased from collective memory. »

    « Hockney is the definitive exploration of one of the most significant artists of his generation. For the first time, David Hockney has given access to his personal archive of photographs and film, resulting in an unparalleled visual diary of a long life. The film chronicles his vast career, from his early life in working-class Bradford--where his love for pictures was developed through his admiration for cinema--to his relocation to Hollywood, where his lifelong struggle to escape labels (‘queer’, ‘working class’, ‘figurative artist’) was fully realised. Paradoxically, this escape to live the American Dream did not break the ties to the childhood that formed him. We see his upbringing and life experiences give him the willpower to survive relationship problems, and later the AIDS epidemic, and also allow him to create some of the most renowned works of the past century. »

    « Für seinen letzten Dokumentarfilm reiste der 2014 verstorbene Filmemacher Bernd Schaarmann auf drei Kontinente, um dort Riten und Traditionen im Umgang mit Verstorbenen zu studieren. In der argentinischen Bergwelt, der brodelnden philippinischen Großstadt Manila, der ägyptischen Metropole Kairo und dem indonesischen Inselparadies Sulawesi lernte er einen positiven Umgang der Menschen mit Tod, Sterben und Trauer kennen, der sich teils radikal von den Traditionen der westlichen Welt unterscheidet. »

    “At least since the Islamic revolution of 1979 in Iran, political Islam or Islamism has been the focus of attention among scholars, policymakers, and the general public. Much has been said about Islamism as a political and moral/ethical trend, but scant attention is paid to its ongoing development. There is now a growing acknowledgment within the scholarly and policy communities that Islamism is in the throes of transformation, but little is known about the nature and direction of these changes. The essays of Post-Islamism bring together young and established scholars and activists from different parts of the Muslim World and the West to discuss their research on the changing discourses and practices of Islamist movements and Islamic states largely in the Muslim majority countries. The changes in these movements can be termed 'post-Islamism,' defined both as a condition and a project characterized by the fusion of religiosity and rights, faith and freedom, Islam and liberty. Post-Islamism emphasizes rights rather than merely obligation, plurality instead of singular authoritative voice, historicity rather than fixed scriptures, and the future instead of the past.”

    “In this brilliant exploration of our cosmic environment, the renowned particle physicist and New York Times bestselling author of Warped Passages and Knocking on Heaven’s Door uses her research into dark matter to illuminate the startling connections between the furthest reaches of space and life here on Earth. Sixty-six million years ago, an object the size of a city descended from space to crash into Earth, creating a devastating cataclysm that killed off the dinosaurs, along with three-quarters of the other species on the planet. What was its origin? In Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, Lisa Randall proposes it was a comet that was dislodged from its orbit as the Solar System passed through a disk of dark matter embedded in the Milky Way. In a sense, it might have been dark matter that killed the dinosaurs. Working through the background and consequences of this proposal, Randall shares with us the latest findings—established and speculative—regarding the nature and role of dark matter and the origin of the Universe, our galaxy, our Solar System, and life, along with the process by which scientists explore new concepts. In Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, Randall tells a breathtaking story that weaves together the cosmos’ history and our own, illuminating the deep relationships that are critical to our world and the astonishing beauty inherent in the most familiar things.”

    “The book is an introduction to the science and possible applications of Graphene, the first one-atom-thick crystalline form of matter. Discovered in 2004 by now Nobelists Geim and Novoselov, the single layer of graphite, a hexagonal network of carbon atoms, has astonishing electrical and mechanical properties. It supports the highest electrical current density of any material, far exceeding metals copper and silver. Its absolute minimum thickness, 0.34 nanometers, provides an inherent advantage in possible forms of digital electronics past the era of Moore's Law. The book describes the unusual physics of the material, that it offers linear rather than parabolic energy bands. The Dirac-like electron energy bands lead to high constant carrier speed, similar to light photons. The lattice symmetry further implies a two-component wave-function, which has a practical effect of cancelling direct backscattering of carriers. The resulting high carrier mobility allows observation of the Quantum Hall Effect at room temperature, unique to Graphene. The material is two-dimensional, but in sizes micrometers nearly to meters displays great tensile strength but vanishing resistance to bending. The book reviews theoretical predictions of excessive atomic vibrational motion, tied to the dimensionality. As explained, these predictions seem not of practical consequence, and such effects are unobservable in samples up to nearly one meter size. The disintegration temperature of this refractory material is estimated as 4900K, certainly higher than the measured sublimation temperature of graphite, 3900K. As explained, applications of Graphene come in classes that range from additives to composite materials to field effect transistor elements capable of extremely high frequency operation. The classes of applications correlate with differing methods of fabrication, from inexpensive chemical exfoliations of graphite, to chemical vapour deposition on catalytic substrates as Cu and Ni, at temperatures around 1300K. The book reviews potential applications within existing electronics, to include interconnect wires, flash-memory elements, and high frequency field effect transistors. The chance to supplant the dominant CMOS family of silicon logic devices is assessed.”

    « À travers dix chapitres essentiellement thématiques, à l’exception des deux premiers qui s’inscrivent dans une dimension à proprement parler historique, ces Regards sur l’Amérique retracent les grandes trajectoires et les dynamiques caractéristiques qui sous-tendent l’identité des États-Unis. Au croisement de l’histoire, de la civilisation et de la littérature, ces Regards se déploient à travers une sélection variée de documents qui s’efforcent de présenter l’Amérique sous un jour un peu moins familier que celui sous lequel elle apparaît le plus souvent. Les sources premières sélectionnées prennent la forme d’extraits de textes de loi, de discours, de lettres et de témoignages ou d’articles, ou encore d’extraits littéraires, de poèmes, chansons et documents iconographiques, etc., qui évoquent dans la langue d’origine les temps forts de plus de quatre siècles d’une histoire en constante mutation. Nécessairement subjectifs, ces Regards mettent ainsi sous les feux de la rampe des individus qui par leurs écrits, leurs œuvres ou leur rôle et leur implication politiques, ont chacun contribué à façonner une Américanité kaléidoscopique, contrastée et titanesque.
