The fear of death can only be conquered if people believe in a superior savior – otherwise eternal damnation in hell awaits them. The documentary found footage collage shows that the dualistic view and way of life of believers dangerously fuels the climate change-induced hell on earth.

Germany 2022, color, 16 min, OV, Engl. sub
Director: Ani Mrelashvili
Production: Christoph Mohr
Maka runs a small Georgian parcel shop in Berlin. It is a place that does not exist on Google Maps and can only be found if you know where to look for it. The store is an anchor point for Georgians who send parcels to their loved ones in their faraway homeland. Each package comes with its own story. What emerges is a small Georgia to soothe nostalgia.

Director: Jan Soldat

Udo Kier dies his way through film history. He screams, falls, lies, is cut into pieces, shot or commits suicide. Again and again his empty gaze, again and again his rigid body. These representations of death merge into a montage of the most diverse shots, film formats, special effects and sound designs.
