Feature

country

Hungary

01:10:33

1536 – Europe is in flames. The Roman Catholic Church and the followers of Reformation started by Luther are fighting with each other: the Roman Catholic Church, which has descended to unprecedented ethical and moral depths and the new type of messages of the Reformation. The pyres are on fire: the high priests of the Roman Catholic Church are burning the followers of the Reformation, and the monarchs who have converted to the Reformed faith are craving for revenge, and are persecuting the Catholics. This is the athmosphere in which the young Calvin appears, trying to solidify the new teachings in the capital of Reformation, Geneva, and trying to convert the whole of Switzerland. In the churches debates about regilion are taking place – the film is about one of the most famous such debates. While Calvin is trying to convert the town of Lausanne, he is faced with a worthy opponent: Ignatius of Loyola, later the founder of the Jesuit order and receiving the title of Saint. But now he is only a wandering priest on his way to Rome, who wants to renew the Roman Catholic Church from inside. He is Calvin's opponent in the debate about religion. A religious reformer wanting to destroy everything to build a completely new Europe – and another reformer who wishes to reform his church based on the ancient Christian doctrines. During the debate we get to know the two men's lives and the road leading up to the debate itself. The film depicts love, treason, we see burnt masters, faith and faithlessness and also the ultimate question: is the renewal of contemporary Europe only possible through destruction, dead bodies and horror, wars and killing? We can also draw conclusions for the present.
The film was produced in the 500th jubilee year of the Reformation.
Screening form by DCP.
With english and france subtitles.

La Lixeira - the invisibles' dignity

Documentary

country

Italy

duration

00:12:00

Maputo, the capital city of Mozabimque, has one or may be two million inhabitants. A few neighborhoods have houses or more precisely brick shacks, some paved roads, mostly a wide range of huts without basic sanitation services, where day by day men, women and children scrape food together in slow and quiet despair-the only chance they have to survive.
In Maputo, not exactly in the city centre or even on the outskirts, there is an area called the dump district, La Lixeira. The dump is a metaphysical scenario, metaphor of our world, so aseptically modern, a kind of reversed utopia of our fate.

Woiwode - Of Hope and Pain: The Memories of a Survivor

Documentary

country

Germany

duration

00:46:11

The documentary "Woiwode: Of Pain and Hope – The Memories of a Survivor" recounts the war years 1941-1945 from Gerhard Woiwode's perspective - a citizen from Weimar. Gerhard Woiwode, a man from a simple background, always remained true to his principles. The film sheds light on his experiences, which are marked by encounters with famous names such as Stauffenberg, the racing driver Manfred von Brauchitsch or the horrors of Auschwitz. These experiences add up to a moving story of hope for peace.

One situation is particularly noteworthy: when Gerhard Woiwode saved the life of a wounded American soldier. This happened in France in 1944, when he kept the soldier from imprisonment and impending death. A significant act of humanity in the midst of
the war.
