14 MAY 2018 – ‘FUCKING BERLIN’ INTRODUCED TO FESTIVAL PROGRAMME
For our 2018 festival progranne, we oicked the drama ‘Fucking Berlin’ by director Florian Gottschick.
Under the alias Sonia Rossi, the still anonymous author published her book „Fucking Berlin: Studentin und Teilzeit-Hure“ in 2008. It it, the Italian autobiographically wrote down her experiences in the capital during her studies. The book became a best-seller and the basis for Florian Gottschicks film.
„Lead actress Svenja Jung proves to be a real hit. By her emotional as well as physically relaxed and revealing performance, she bestows an extreme believability and approachability to the demanding character, which naturally helps to tell the story. Mateusz Dopieralski is equally convincing as the sympathetic but lazy Ladja with a very natural performance. Christoph Letkowski (‚Mängelexemplar‘) seemlessly gets in line as the married barkeeper who has a crush on Svenja.“ (leinwandreporter.com)

27 JANUARY 2018 – RUGGERO DEODATO TO BE GUEST AT 7th CINEWAYS
We are thrilled to announce that Italian director Ruggero Deodato will be among the guests at this year’s festival.
Born in Potenza, southern Italy, in 1939, Deodato learned the art of filmmaking from a young age alongside directors such as Roberto Rossellini, Sergio Corbucci, Riccardo Freda and Antonio Margheriti. For Corbucci he was responsible, for example, for the shooting of the DJANGO final.
His best-known films include the police thriller UOMINI SI NASCE POLIZIOTTI SI MUORE (1976), THE LAST CANNIBALS (1977), CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980) and CUT AND RUN (1985) which are attributed to the genre of cannibal film as well as THE BARBARIANS (1987), produced by Cannon. Above all, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST is regarded as a masterpiece of film history, which, through its style of staging, can be seen as a pointed development of the flow of neo-realism. Deodato is still active as a filmmaker.
