Thu, 20 June, 21.30: Open Air Cinema: INNA DE YARD – THE SOUL OF JAMAICA

F 2018 • 99‘ • Original Version with German subtitles • DOK • R: Peter Webber

A house filled with old vinyl records, perched on the slopes above Kingston, Jamaica. In the yard, some of the legendary voices of Reggae can be heard. Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, and Cedric Myton, the famous lead of the Congos, to name but a few. They’ve sung with Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Jimmy Cliffin the back rooms of the ghettos. For the project of Inna de Yard, they’ve reunited to revisit the biggest hits of their repertoire and record a unique acoustic album. On this occasion, they’ll share the mic with younger singers, representatives of the new reggae stage.

MEX/D 2018 • 75‘ • Original Version with German Subtitles • DOK • R: José Pablo Estrada Torrescano

Guests: director José Pablo Estrada Torrescano & producer Arne Birkenstock

Mamacita is an extravagant Mexican beauty queen living in her own kingdom in company of her loyal servants: gardener, chauffeur, chef, housekeeper and nurses. The 95-year-old lady has turned her house into a castle, hiding the open wounds of a prominent Mexican upper class family behind its stonewalls. When José Pablo went abroad to study film, Mamacita made him promise to return to Mexico one day to make a film about her life. He conquers his granny’s empire like a Trojan horse, discovering the haunted spirits of his own past and the lack of love that his entire clan has suffered from for generations.
