KOHLHAAS OR THE PORPORTIONALITY OF MEANS, DIRECTED BY ARON LEHMANN AND PRODUCED BY MIRIAM KLEIN - TRAILER

1013090_343703019094679_480510993_n

Here is the trailer for Aron Lehmann's KOHLHAAS OR THE PROPORTIONALITY OF MEANS, now out in cinemas in Germany. KOHLHASS, was produced by my good friend here in Berlin Miriam Klein, who I was introduced to though our mutual dear friend in Paris, Ottavia Palomba. The film has been playing many festival and doing quite well (find links below for more info) and is described is a very modern interpretation of Kleist's "Michael Kohlhaas", a classic in German literature.

"What happened here we shall record, though we must allow those who wish to question it the freedom to do so." -- Heinrich von Kleist

Deep in the Bavarian countryside Kleist's historical drama "Michael Kohlhaas" is being shot. But instead of shooting a huge epic with impressive costumes and extraordinary props, grown-up men in blue overalls and suits run through the woods and fight with imaginary weapons. What has happened?"

 

 

KOHLHASS is playing here in Berlin at http://bit.ly/HierImKino and here is a review on the film in English on twitchfilm.com, by Ben Umstead.   

On Sept 9th Miriam informed me that there will be a special screening in Lichtblick Kino (with engl. subs) here in Berlin, in presence of Aron Lehmann, presented by EX BERLINER.

Today happens to be Miriam's birthday as well, so I am sending out a special digital HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISH TO YOU. Congratulations on the success of the film!

LA DANZA DE LA REALIDAD (DANCE OF REALITY) TRAILER - DIRECTED BY ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY

Realidad-thumb-630xauto-38686

Was happy to find the trailer for Jodorowsky's new film, LA DANZA DE LA REALIDAD (DANCE OF REALITY), which debuted at Cannes last May. My dear friend in Mexico City Alisarine Ducolomb did the production design on the film, which she has been telling me about for sometime. I am look forward to seeing LA DANZA DE LA REALIDAD, which is described as "a magic-realist memoir" of Jodorowsky's youth.

 

Here is an interview with Jodorowsky from Xan Brooks at The Guardian.
