Tagline: A director’s undertaking of producing and filming a television remake of Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s The Bitter Tears of Preta von Kant is thwarted by various casting challenges, including finding the perfect actress to play the lead role.

Synopsis: For her first television film – a remake of Fassbinder’s The Bitter Tears of Preta von Kant (Diebitteren Tränen der Petra von Kant) – director Vera wants the perfect cast. But the first day of shooting is fast approaching and the numerous casting sessions have yet to find a suitable actress to play the leading role. Although the producer and crew are getting ever more exasperated with Vera, Gerwin is happy about the extra work, as he earns his money as an audition reader, delivering the lines of dialogue to the starry candidates at the various castings. When the male lead suddenly has to back out, Gerwin thinks that this might just be his chance.

Academy Award-winner Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) brings his highly anticipated next feature to the screen, an adaptation of James Baldwin’s stunning novel, If Beale Street Could Talk. In early 1970’s Harlem, Tish, a nineteen-year old girl, is in love with a young sculptor, Fonny, the father of her unborn child. When Fonny is falsely accused of rape and imprisoned, Tish and their families race to clear his name before the baby is born. A story about love persisting in the face of racial oppression and injustice, Jenkins brings together a talented young cast which includes Stephan James (Selma, Race) as Fonny and newcomer Kiki Layne as Tish.

Tagline: An apprentice to a sorcerer rebels against his master after discovering his evil plans.

Synopsis: Set within a world of sorcery and wizardry like an 18th Century Harry Potter, the film tells the story of Krabat, a 14-year old beggar boy lured to a mysterious mill by a series of frightening dreams and apparitions. He becomes an apprentice to the master of a watermill where he joins the eleven other young journeymen who work there. Much to his surprise, Krabat soon discovers that the mill is actually a school of black magic and he is expected to learn much more than just a normal millers trade. Krabat studies hard and becomes the master's star pupil, but when he falls for a local village girl, the depth of the master's evil and the darker secrets of the mill begin to reveal themselves. One by one, his fellow classmates perish from mysterious, unexplained accidents and Krabat realises he must use all of the dark magic skills he has learned to secure his escape. Starring David Kross (The Reader) and Daniel Brühl (Good Bye Lenin), Krabat is based on the celebrated children's novel of the same name by Otfried Preußler. The book has been translated into 26 languages, sold millions of copies worldwide and it is now available as a feature film for the very first time.

Awards: Bavarian Film Award 2008 in the category “Best Young People’s Film”.

ROMA

A vivid portrayal of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil, ROMA follows a young domestic worker Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio) from Mixteco heritage descent and her co-worker Adela (Nancy García), also Mixteca, who work for a small family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma. Mother of four, Sofia (Marina de Tavira), copes with the extended absence of her husband, Cleo faces her own devastating news that threatens to distract her from caring for Sofia’s children, whom she loves as her own. While trying to construct a new sense of love and solidarity in a context of a social hierarchy where class and race are perversely intertwined, Cleo and Sofia quietly wrestle with changes infiltrating the family home in a country facing confrontation between a government-backed militia and student demonstrators. Filmed in luminous black and white, ROMA is an intimate, gut-wrenching and ultimately life-affirming portrait of the ways, small and large, one family maintains its balance in a time of personal, social and political strife.
