“Irmina” von Barbara Yelin

Die ehrgeizige Irmina reist Mitte der 1930er Jahre nach London, um eine Ausbildung zur Fremdsprachensekretärin zu beginnen. Dort lernt sie den dunkelhäutigen Howard kennen, dem sie sich im Streben nach einem selbstbestimmten Leben verbunden fühlt. Durch den klugen und zielstrebigen Oxfordstudenten beginnt Irmina ihren Blick auf die Welt zu öffnen. Doch findet ihre Beziehung ein jähes Ende, als Irmina, bedrängt durch die politische Situation, nach Berlin zurückkehrt. Im nationalsozialistischen Deutschland steht sie vor der Möglichkeit, den erstrebten Wohlstand endlich zu erlangen, wenn sie dafür die verbrecherische Ideologie des Regimes nicht infrage stellt. Und die politischen Ereignisse eskalieren weiter und weiter…

Mit “Irmina” legt Barbara Yelin ihr Glanzstück vor: ein packendes Drama um die Entscheidung zwischen persönlicher Freiheit und dem Drang nach gesellschaftlichem Aufstieg. Basierend auf einer wahren Geschichte, erzählt sie in atmosphärisch dichten Bildern einen Werdegang voller Brüche, der aber auch exemplarisch für die Mitschuld durch Wegsehen und Vorteilsnahme vieler im Nationalsozialismus stehen kann.

Mit einem Nachwort von Dr. Alexander Korb.

The Diatomist

“The Diatomist” is a short documentary about Klaus Kemp, master of the Victorian art of diatom arrangement.

Diatoms are single cell algae that create jewel-like glass shells around themselves. Microscopists of the Victorian era would arrange them into complex patterns, invisible to the naked eye but spectacular when viewed under magnification.The best of these arrangements are stunning technical feats that reveal the hidden grandeur of some of the smallest organisms on Earth. Klaus Kemp has devoted his entire life to understanding and perfecting diatom arrangement and he is now acknowledged as the last great practitioner of this beautiful combination of art and science. “The Diatomist” showcases his incredible work.

Soundtrack by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Bernard Herrmann & Cults Percussion Ensemble.

Matthew Killip is an English filmmaker living in New York. His documentaries have been broadcast on UK television and exhibited in festivals including Sundance and True/False.

Warrenites must prevent this. They climb to the highest point and light bonfires, dance, sing and celebrate. The flames reach up so high that they kiss the sun. The Sun sees the bonfires and people dancing and is happy. It then begins it’s decent back down to Earth so that winter can begin it’s approach.”
