Quartered at Dawn (Viergeteilt im Morgengrauen)

Posted in , ,

Written/Directed by Norbert Keil; Produced by Roland Lippoldmüller

“I heard something,” he says and tries to peek through the foggy windows of his car. But she will not have any of this nonsense, and takes his face and guides it towards her open blouse, giggling with anticipation.

It is winter, the snowy landscape tranquil. But Marc and Sarah are not cold, their cheeks are flushed, their breath is heated.  And so they do not notice the car crashing nearby. The driver is hurt badly; she barely makes it out of the wreck.

“I’m positive I heard something,”‘ Marc says again, but Sarah once again directs his attention back to herself.

Another car arrives. The injured woman gets nervous, looks for her gun, tries to shoot – but too late: the axe rips the gun from her hand.

“You didn’t hear anything, no matter how sure you are.” Sarah moans.

And while they continue their little outing in the back of the car, they’re unaware that there was something after all… and it might be coming for them as well.

D-I-M, Deus in Machina

Posted in , , ,

Writers/Producers: Axel and Henning Ricke; Director: Axel Ricke

At the end of the twenty-first century society has given up on the illusion of happiness for everyone. Another ideal has taken its place: your usefulness for society has become the measure of all things. Based on its own rating of the citizens, a dehumanized system distributes goods and services to the inhabitants of it’s world.
Lutz is not cut out for this. He is a romantic aficionado of nostalgic 2D-films of the twenties century. Instead of paying his dues to society, he prefers to sit in front of his antique DVD player and immerses himself in a world where there is still freedom, adventure and heroism. Soon his romantic inclination gets him kicked out of university and loses him his prestigious enrollment at the institute for neuro-informatics. Without perspective or status he finds himself in a situation with no way out.

But Lutz has a plan, and with a little help from his one true friend Jannik, he’s ready to defy the system and win a future.

The small world of Rosfeld is turning upside down, when unexpectedly an alien spaceship materializes over the rooftops of the village. Now mayor Berger sees his chance to eternal glory. He will make the first interstellar contact! And this time NOBODY will question Rosfeld’s right to a place in the history books!
