Drowning (Berlin City Tours)

Steffen Ramlow | | 8 mins

Moments of everyday life, observations, inconspicuous situations, sounds, music – as ellipses, parallels, something abstract, concrete, interwoven – miniatures in black and white and colour.

The Ruins of the Palace of the Rebublik in Berlin and the waters of Venice. The last witnesses of the Palace as fragments of memory are drowning in the water of the sinking city. The coarse-grained Super 8 Material itself seems bygone and underlines the melancholic atmosphere of the images and the music.

The Russians

European Premiere
Christian Klinger | | 52 mins

THE RUSSIANS is a film about the photography of Oleg Videnin. It looks at the unknown world of so-called normal Russian life and the real people Oleg Videnin uses in his work.

The film accompanies Oleg Videnin as he photographs people on the streets of Bryansk, as well as in Russia’s empty villages and along Russia’s roads. He also provides a deep insight into his working methods in the darkroom and the methods he uses when photographing people. The film includes several sequences of Oleg Videnin’s outstanding and moving photography.

The documentary also includes interviews with Russian curators Evgeny Berezner (Head of the Department for Photography and Multimedia at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art), and Irina Tchmyreva (Art Historian and Curator, Moscow).
