New @ MAGNETFILM: Nuclear Forever

Happy to announce the brand-new MAGNETFILM title NUCLEAR FOREVER by Carsten Rau which celebrated the world premiere as part of the German competition of DOK Leipzig.
Germany is turning away from nuclear power once and for all in 2022. Because the risk is too high, the technology unmanageable. Yet the nuclear nightmare goes on. With unique access, Rau takes an equally profound and alarming look at the hazardous process of the dismantling of power plants which will take decades and gobble up many billions of euros, with thousands of tonnes of radioactive waste whose storage isn’t the least bit clear.
Rau also looks into the French atomic industry that ridicules the German opt-out as “ludicrous” and wants even more power plants. In the process, what particularly sets this film apart is that it does not take sides in this debate which has been conducted for decades on a bitterly ideological plane. NUCLEAR FOREVER doesn’t leave any arguments out, even though they may be unpopular. In the end, the viewer can and must form their own impression of the mania called nuclear power. That has no end.

New @ MAGNETFILM: BREAKING BARRIERS

A very warm welcome to a new addition to the MAGNETFILM line-up: BREAKING BARRIERS - THE CASTELESS COLLECTIVE by Maja Meiners premiered at Sheffield Doc/Fest and portrays the 15 members strong The Casteless Collective band from Chennai in South India.
They play their protest music as an eclectic mix of folk music and Gaana art coming from North Chennai’s slum area, combined with modern musical styles of rap and rock.
Their lyrics covers all the social issues in Indian society that affect the band themselves: caste discrimination, the ‘untouchables’, and the oppression of women, LGBTQI+ people and those from underprivileged and marginalized backgrounds. The film shows the young band’s powerful attempt to break cultural stigmas, and joins their journey towards an Indian future of casteless mentality and reality.

Goodbye Rabbi Wolff

We are very sorry to hear about the passing of the great Rabbi Wolff this morning.
He was a very special person who touched the lives of many deeply.
It's fortunate that Britta Wauer was able to portray him in her wonderful documentary and capture his life and legacy for future generations and we feel privileged to have been working with the film. Our deepest condolences to all family and friends and all Jewish communities he worked with. He will be missed very much.

WE HOLD THE LINE wins @ CPH:DOX

WE HOLD THE LINE won the F:act Award competition at CPH:DOX in Copenhagen!
Congratulations to director Marc Wiese, producer Oliver Stoltz and the whole team and a great big thank you to the festival and the jury!

The festival had to move the whole program online. You can watch the wonderful Awards Show they put together here: vimeo.com/401401625

The F:act Award jury consisted of Israeli filmmaker Shosh Shlam, the Finnish film critic Marta Balaga and Danish director and journalist Nils Giversen.
The competition is dedicated to films in the field between documentary filmmaking, investigative journalism and activism and is presented in collaboration with the Danish Union of Journalists. The award is a cash prize of 5,000 euros.


The jury statement:

“The CPH:DOX F:act Award goes to the film depicting dark, troubling events in a skillful yet measured way, smartly focusing on just the right situations while employing a precise cinematic language. One that for all the portrayed hardships still manages to transform into a story about the unbreakable human spirit, providing the kind of narrative, and everyday heroes hell-bent on unearthing the truth, that we all desperately need right now. Making the voices of those fighting for the freedom of speech sound loud and clear, giving us hope for the future.”

The film will be available for Danish audiences to view at cphdox.dk/online until April 30.

Trailer for THE NEW BAUHAUS

Happy to announce the newly released trailer for THE NEW BAUHAUS - THE LIFE & LEGACY OF MOHOLY-NAGY by Alysa Nahmias.

As the production company Opendox write in their newsletter, László Moholy-Nagy can serve as inspiration in these trying times. He lived through two World Wars, the Great Depression and Nazi persecution, and he did it all with his signature relentless optimism intact.
He turned to his creativity when times were tough. While enlisted in the Hungarian army during World War I, he kept up his drawing skills by making hundreds of postcards that he sent to family and friends. During World War II he turned his School of Design in Chicago into design laboratory for the war effort. The students worked on everything from camouflage designs to wooden bed springs when steel was rationed. Even at the end of his short life, as his terminal leukemia went into remission, Moholy was incredibly productive creating some of his most enduring works.

The film has opened the Architecture Design Film Festival in New York City and has been traveling to Chicago FF and Palm Springs IFF and was scheduled for an EU premiere at the Copenhagen Architecture Film Festival in March which was now postponed unfortunately.
We'll keep you updated on any new screenings in the future.

Welcome to a new addition to the MAGNETFILM line-up: Iñaki Arteta's intimate portrait of the self-taught star chef Bittor Arginzoniz premiered at this year's San Sebastian International Film Festival (original title: Bittor Arginzoniz. Vivir en el silencio, produced by Leize producciones S.L.)
Bittor has revolutionized the way people roast meat, fish or vegetables. He has a remarkable ability to coax out explosive flavour from seemingly simple ingredients, most of which are gilled over his famous adjustable-height grills. The film offers viewers an exclusive look into Bittor’s way of working, from the obsessive search for the best product to preparation and cooking for his Asador Etxebarri reastuarant, ranked number 3 of the world best in 2019.

New @ MAGNETFILM: HIGHFLYERS

Welcome to a new addition to the MAGNETFILM line-up:
HIGHFLYERS, directd by Lena Leonhardt and and produced by Peter Kuczinski (OnScreen Media) portrays the lucrative business of pigeon racing. It premiered at DOK:fest Munich this year and is Leonie's follow up to her award-winning documentary DOG SOLDIERS (2016).
Several hundred thousand Euros for a pigeon: a price many super-rich in Dubai or China are willing to pay because especially in China betting on "the little man's race horse" has become a million-dollar business. The film adopts an unusual perspective on the story of winners and losers in a game ruled by the new powers of global economy and reflects on the meaning of material wealth in the lives of different people around the world.

Wins at DOK.fest München

The DOK.fest München kinokino Audience Award, sponsored by 3sat and BR, with 82% of the votes went to ANOTHER REALITY by Noël Dernesch, Olli Waldhauer (Germany/Switzerland 2019) - what a great world premiere!

ANOTHER REALITY is a character-driven documentary which provides a real insight into the life in criminal gangs in Germany, meeting the young protagonists and letting them show us their dreams, their present and their future.

Congratulations also to Tuki Jencquel for winning the VIKTOR DOK.horizonte Award for ESTÁ TODO BIEN at DOK.fest München!

From the jury statement:

"In his cleverly constructed documentary film Tuki Jencquel recounts how the people in Venezuela are suffering from a shortage of medicines and a real exodus of doctors who are migrating abroad. Patients for whom the lack of medicinal supplies amounts to a death sentence; young doctors who have decided to stay against the odds; and despairing pharmacists whose shops stand empty are used as examples by the director to reveal what is seldom shown in news coverage on the subject."
