Freely adapted from the novella by Henry James, The Beast in the Jungle tells the vertiginous story of a man and woman who, for twenty-five years, frequent a huge nightclub in anticipation of a mysterious event. From 1979 to 2004, from disco to techno, it is a love story and the tale of an obsession. When “it” finally comes to pass, it takes on a more tragic form than ever expected.

In turn-of-the-century Vienna, a visionary and pioneering Sigmund Freud develops psychoanalysis until he is forced into exile in London in 1938. An intimate portrait – also told from the perspective of his daughter Anna – based on Freud’s correspondences and texts, and a questioning of “home” and “Jewish identity.” Previously unpublished archive images present Freud not only as a brilliant thinker, but also as a private person in all his different facets.

Illegal logging is a global business worth billions. Alexander von Bismarck, descendant of the Iron Chancellor and head of the Environmental Investigation Agency in Washington D.C., successfully pursues the machinations of the timber mafia worldwide – with dyed hair, a concealed camera and sound recording equipment. His primary concern isn’t to expose a scandalous situation, but rather to promote a change in the consciousness of politics and civil society and to bring about a new code of conduct for the global economy and consumers. WOOD is an environmental thriller that draws its tension from sad everyday reality.

Details the catastrophic effects globalization has wrought on the ship, truck and train industries. We visit displaced farmers and villagers in Holland and Belgium, underpaid truck drivers in Los Angeles, seafarers aboard mega-ships shuttling between Asia and Europe, and factory workers in China, whose low wages are the fragile key to the whole puzzle. At a moment when collective bargaining rights are under attack in the United States, and China continues to bow to foreign pressures to prevent such rights from being granted at all, this film asks: Is capitalism the Trojan horse that turns on its inventors?

There is cramming and getting laid in Tirana. But all of a sudden the student Koli is caught up by an archaic world which claims that he is part of it. When his disabled father dies a blood feud is being revived and he is held liable for a murder committed by this grandfather 60 years earlier. At first he endeavours to bring his opponents to their senses. As this proves futile, he becomes increasingly paranoid and, unwillingly, starts to resemble his opponents. When he decides to arm himself and train, the notion of a modern present dissolves into melancholy. Koli is catapulted into an Albanian reality that is devoid of all romantic folklore. In a country where until recently Hoxherian despotism and a grisly mountaineers‘ mentality were ruling alongside, there is neither a right to a „modern“ every day life nor the possibility of escaping to such, while the insistence on tradition is leading directly into catastrophe as well. Thus, Artan Minarolli’s heroes shipwreck on their own great expectations.

PIANOMANIA is a film about love, perfection and a little bit of madness. „The tone isn’t breathing. “ – complains pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard, distraught. This is a typical sentence in Steinway & Sons’ chief technician and Master Tuner Stefan Knüpfer’s normal work day. Each piano has its own personality, each piece demands its own timbre, and every interpretation has a particular temperament. PIANOMANIA takes the viewer along on a humorous journey into the secret world of sounds, and accompanies Stefan Knüpfer at his unusual job with world famous pianists like Lang Lang, Alfred Brendel, Rudolf Buchbinder and Pierre-Laurent Aimand, among others. To find the right instrument with the necessary qualities, compatible with the vision of the virtuoso, to tune it to perfection and finally to get it on the stage, needs nerves of steel, boundless passion, and the extraordinary competence in translating words into sounds. This unusual film by Lilian Franck and Robert Cibis tells – with love and humor – of moments of absolute love of attention to detail and perfection. PIANOMANIA observes, from unique angles, the suspenseful search for the perfect tone.
