White Darkness / Ballet
»Nacho Duato composed the one-act ballet, White Darkness, as a requiem for the untimely loss of a sister. The result is a masterpiece which, according to critics, has “reached impossible heights” in the landscape of modern art.
The ballet’s heroine, having lost faith in love, seeks oblivion; but the path she has chosen brings her not joy but feverish agitation, followed by disappointment, alienation and self-imposed isolation.«

Soul Chain / Documentary
»A uniformly seeming mass with eccentric movements, constantly halfway point dancing to hard techno beats: this only describes the high-performance dance of „Soul Chain“ to some extend. It’s a piece that the renowned choreographer Sharon Eyal created especially for the dance ensemble „tanzmainz“ of the Staatstheater Mainz. „Soul Chain“ displays the contrast between the individual and the group. Breathless, the Soul Chain lies around the dancers and their movements. The documentary approaches the piece, as well as the dancers of the ensemble and the internationally successful choreographer Sharon Eyal from Tel Aviv.«

Lighter Than Orange / Documentary
»It smelled sweet, one woman remembered, like ripe guavas. Others remember it hanging in the air like a thick fog. Some say when aircrafts sprayed, it looked like stripes of powder decorating the sky.
Vietnam war, 1950 – 1975. US president John F. Kennedy personally ordered the use of us-researched herbicides. It was meant to defoliate trees under which Vietnamese soldiers took cover. Between 1961 and 1971, the U.S. Air Force sprayed more than 80 million liters of dioxin-based herbicides, including Agent Orange, Agent Blue and Agent Purple, over Vietnamese forests, jungles and agricultural fields. These dioxin-based defoliants altered the soldiers’ DNA, leading to cancer, neurological disorders, skin diseases, organ and limb damage, and/or total loss of voice, hearing and sight. This cellular breakdown and the resulting maladies were genetically passed on to their offspring.
In Lighter Than Orange North Vietnamese veterans tell about their memories of the war and Agent Orange as well as the struggles they have faced as a consequence of both.«

Requiem – Dedication to Freedom / music video
»This clip, which was shot on the Maidan in Kiev, the site of November 2013’s uprising, is of a piece by Georgian/Ukrainian composer Igor Loboda entitled “Requiem – Dedication to Freedom.” It is dedicated to the people who lost their lives in the pursuit of freedom and democracy – in Ukraine and elsewhere«
Piotr Anderszewski and the piano / Documentary
»Piotr Anderszewski is a perfectionist. He is ready to turn every single tone of a work upside down and balance it out – his audience appreciates it. It is not without reason that Anderszewski is considered one of the best pianists of our time. In this film, Anderszewski gives an intimate insight into the everyday life of a pianist, talks about problems with instruments and concert halls, and visits the production facility of Steinway & Sons. The viewer gets a lasting impression of the sometimes complicated relationship of an artist with his instrument, which can go along with years of frustration.«
