Kino travels to rural northern Germany this month, to the world's biggest heavy metal festival. We also present THE romance film of this summer. And we visit three directors in Iceland, which may be a small country, but is also is a creative one, and we ask why the film scene there is so successful.
Kino heads to the Munich Film festival, whose line-up bridges new German cinema and US independent film. We take a look at German gangster movies and, courtesy of Luxx Studios in Stuttgart, we dive into the virtual world of special effects.
Kino looks back at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and asks what role German productions play at the world’s biggest film festival. In addition, we talk to young German filmmakers about their short films, and observe the revival of the Western genre.
It’s LOLA time again. The German film prize is awarded in May. Kino will tell you all about the winners and about Helmut Dietl, who’s getting a lifetime achievement award. We’ll also present a documentary about a legendary East Berlin football club and take a look at the work of recently deceased director Michael Glawogger.
The favorites in the run-up to the 2014 German Film Awards; why video games and the cinema industry are becoming increasingly similar; how a Jewish boy escaped the Holocaust; and the similarities and contrasts between the many German men named Thomas Müller. All that and more on the next edition of Kino.
Powerful stories. New faces.
