how often the relationships between

Women and men in this year's

Films are thematized - and the

female look.

We are very happy that we are with Emma

mackie knife -

brecht's threepenny film

opens that

36th Munich Film Festival

Director and work united: Joachim A. Lang and his Brechtian characters


OPENING

On Thursday, June 28th at 7 p.m., the Mathäser

Filmpalast the 36th Munich Film Festival with Joachim A. Langs Mackie

Messer - Brecht's three-penny film opens. Become a world premiere

next to director Joachim A. Lang also Lars Eidinger, Tobias Moretti,

Hannah Herzsprung, Joachim Król, Claudia Michelsen, Britta Hammelstein,

Robert Stadlober, Peri Baumeister, Godehard Giese and others

Team members expected. In addition to the opening (by invitation only) there

there are more opportunities to see the film: it runs regularly on Friday,

June 29th, 8:30 pm, and Saturday, July 7th, 5:30 pm, both times at Rio 1 in the

"New German Cinema" series. On Friday, June 29th, are directors

Joachim A. Lang and stars of the film at 6 p.m. at filmmakers live

to experience in the black box.

At a single, decisive one

Place of mackie knife - brechts

threepenny film turns

Bertolt Brecht directly via camera

to the viewer: “Who the plot

does not understand ”, says Lars Eidinger in

its embodiment of the idealistic

Author, “doesn't need to think about it

to break - it is incomprehensible. "

This direct approach tries to

a theatrical trick by Brecht directly

to translate into the cinematic medium:

activating the audience too

awake recipients.

Bertolt Brecht was a visionary

Theater man - and recognized as such

the incredible potential of the

new medium film: the birth of a

'Epic cinemas', so to speak from the

Spirit of his epic theater. The

emerging film industry continued

on the other hand on the commercial potential

the plays of light. And so invested

Nero-Film AG 1928, immediately

after the incredible success of the

Threepenny Opera, in a film adaptation

this whole new kind of opera to which

Kurt Weill the sounds between popular hits

and had delivered avant-garde.

The director should be Georg Wilhelm Pabst

lead, Brecht should be the script giver

act. This dialectic of the artistic

Idealism and economic

Constraints harbored enormous potential for conflict.

Nothing less than the future

of the cinema it worked: as a medium of

Entertainment or encouragement to

Think, even act. Soon accused

the film society the idealistic

Author, the film a “pronounced

political tendency ”admit

want. Brecht closed Nero AG

from the production, which then

civil litigation for a performance ban

aspired to. It is save

no accident that he is also a playwright

court scenes as a theatrical stylistic device

loved giving the audience a

Demand your own opinion. In the real

The lawsuit was dismissed,

and so Pabsts celebrated the threepenny opera

on February 19, 1931 in Berlin

their premiere - in a version in which

Bertolt Brecht's ideas

largely disregarded.

With mackie knife - brechts

dreigroschenfilm helps Joachim A.

Lang agrees with the author's intentions

their expression: in a movie about

the movie. A stylistic device like Bertolt

Brecht would always like the

wanted. This also applies to Langs

Playing with the famous "V-Effect":

if he is about at the behest of the author

two moons over the Landwehr Canal

lets rise where Brecht and the

Film producer Seymour minor figure

(Godehard Giese) from a bridge the

Love scene between gangster Mackie

(Tobias Moretti) and his girlfriend

Watching Polly (Hannah Herzsprung)

which the author at this moment of the

Films imagined about the film and

thus a second level of observation

Order occupied: “A simple copy

reality is not enough. "

On the Brechtian tricks

addressing the audience directly is also a part of it

Lars Eidingers, who exclusively

in o-tones and quotes Bertolt

Brechts has his say and continues to this day

relevant cultural criticism exercises: “The film

needs art "he lectures with nickel glasses,

in black leather coat and

with the eternal cigar in hand

or between the lips: “It works

not about the habits of the

To satisfy the audience - but them

to change. ”Because:“ How should art

move people when they don't

is moved by people? "

Joachim A. Lang's film lives off

Brecht's beliefs about that

To translate the essence of art into film.

To his understanding of the medium

Film as a socially relevant art form

also include the reflections on that

early cinema and its commercialization,

the political claim

the arts on the eve of totalitarianism

as well as the problem of artistic

Autonomy in times of capitalism.

The director solves the

Contradiction between art and commerce

and politics on by being in his

Film about Brecht's threepenny film

theoretical reflection and wonderful

Picture ideas so united that its mackie

The crème de la also makes sure of that

which are the famous characters of the

Longing, in the sense of the romantic

Desire is one

widespread, often disappointed,

liked to celebrate and

sometimes overrated emotion.

She has earned her

Relationship with the

Addictions more than just

etymological. The great Duden dictionary

gives for longing

the meaning "intimate,

painful longing for

someone or something ”.

Ashes are pure white

goes the young Qiao for her

Gangster friend five years into the

Jail. Freedom again

she grabs the desire directly,

in search of the beloved

to go. Sure that with that

the real story

and go.

Romantic and also sexual

Desires of her youth

Jennifer Fox in hers

first, autobiographically colored

Feature film the tale. In this

she dedicates herself to a story

which they themselves as

13-year-old wrote down. First

as an adult recognizes Jennifer

(Laura Dern) the experiences

her youth as an abuse experience.

Now she wants against it

Action.

She comes from sickness

Plague, addiction, longing.

You can almost get sick

will be in front of desire for

something like the title character zama

Lucrecia Martel. Nice

the longings that are in

the hopelessness of a

Three-way constellation result.

The philosopher Immanuel

Kant defines: “The unattainable

Desire the time between

to be able is longing ”.

With this period of time

should be very familiar to Terry Gilliam

be that after 20 years

with the man who killed don

he started more than 15 years ago,

to shoot the film - and

freshly occupied and ready for it

curious audience.

As a spectator, you wait

every year longingly for certain

Movies. Might be the time

but pass faster until

for example a new film

by Paul Schrader - this time

with Ethan Hawke and Amanda
