The perpetrator was never found. That true crime forms the basis for a grim horror film. More than 55 years after the original murders, schoolmates Elias and Atte persuade two girls to go camping at exactly the spot where the crime took place.

Yet it bothers her immensely that he will now have nothing to do with her.
Hanna is the only one who knows that Sven has an informant named Inez, so she makes a quick decision to take over the contact. Hanna soon realises how broad the investigation is.

Peter Madsen und Kristian von Bengtson wollen es mit bescheidenen finanziellen Mitteln, ein paar freiwilligen Helfern und Material aus dem Baumarkt schaffen. Doch die permanenten Spannungen und Kompetenzstreitigkeiten zwischen den beiden ungleichen Partnern und vor allem der zunehmend unberechenbare Madsen drohen, das Projekt zum Scheitern zu bringen. Two Danes want to send a rocket into space.
The project is sheer madness, and as it happens, the technical problems are the most manageable obstacles. When NASA sends a rocket into space, they have a budget of umpteen million dollars. Peter Madsen and Kristian von Bengtson plan to do it with a modest amount of money, a few volunteer helpers, and materials bought at the DIY store.
Madsen has already built several submarines and Bengtson worked in the space industry for years. So the two sometimes fanatic eccentrics, and the more prudent project benefactor persevere in the face of setbacks and a shortage of funds. They even manage to launch a rocket. But constant tension and arguments between the two unequal partners, and above all the increasingly erratic behaviour of the volatile Madsen, threaten to scuttle the project altogether.

All the year-old girl can do is wait. Rokshar is popular in school and plays football at the local club. After her brother was killed by the Taliban, her parents fled to Denmark with their remaining children.
But their application for asylum has been denied several times. In a calm, concentrated rhythm, the film shows the responsibility that rests on her shoulders, and what it means to live in uncertainty. It puts a face to the devastating impact of European refugee policies. Deutsche Premiere Sa So 4.
Two young parents have one desire — to be a completely normal family. A sensitive and haunting portrait. At the ultrasound appointment, they are as excited as most expectant parents. Xenia and Mathias are both 23 and expecting a baby boy. But their pasts catch up with that desire for normality. How do you become a real adult when you were never allowed to simply be a child? This cinematic observation does not sugar coat the huge challenges of life for a young family. Their son Linus is premature, they barely keep up with the cleaning and shopping, and old routines threaten to encroach on their efforts.
Ein junges Elternpaar will vor allem eins: eine ganz normale Familie sein. Seine Vergangenheit macht ihm das nicht leicht. Beim Ultraschalltermin sind sie so aufgeregt wie die meisten werdenden Eltern. Xenia und Mathias sind beide 23 Jahre alt und erwarten einen kleinen Sohn. Wie wird man ein richtiger Erwachsener, wenn man nie einfach Kind sein konnte? Ein Mann, eine Frau — ein Blutgerinnsel. Mette tut alles, damit er aus der Reha schnell wieder nach Hause kommen kann. A man, a woman — a blood clot. Kristian and Mette met twelve years ago; they have a house and children.
That all changes in a single stroke. The film opens with the audio of a call to emergency services. We are immediately drawn into the intimate space that the film creates between the audience and its subjects. The year-old man has to re-learn even the simplest things — walking, setting the table.
Mette does everything she can to get him out of the rehab clinic and back home as quickly as possible. But he has changed. Sine Skibsholt and her crew followed the couple and their children for a year.

She studied education, theatre, and psychology before working as an assistant director, director, and producer for Estonian television. Over the years, she has made dance her specialty. The Tallinn Ballet School is home to fledgling dancers, young talents with ambition, and ballet divas. The film is a cross-generational look at an institution. Since its founding in , the Tallinn Ballet School has launched many dance careers. Director and dance expert Ruti Murusalu draws a portrait of the renowned training institute as a place where different generations of dancers cross paths. It starts with the very little ones, who receive stringent instruction in the basics at the barre.
Then there are the young adults, close to graduation, and the former ballet stars, who teach, judge, and counsel the up-and-coming youngsters. The film follows the dancers closely, especially her. From the harsh practice regime that takes everything out of her, both physically and mentally, we also accompany her to international competitions and performances. The film makes it crystal clear how much work and stamina, as well as how many tears, go into fulfilling the dream of becoming a ballerina. Estland , 53 Min.

Rivo sei ein Psychopath, diagnostiziert ein Arzt im Krankenhaus. Bald darauf nimmt sich der Mann, mit dem sie das Leben geteilt hat, das Leben. Rivo was a soldier in the Afghan war. After Hanna left him, he took his own life. The film deals with the topic of post-traumatic stress disorder.
But as a person, he was also very fragile. But his return to a life without military equipment, uniforms, and a chain of command results in a breakdown. He constantly struggles with himself and his environment; his days consist of confusion, arguments, and tears. A hospital doctor labels him a psychopath. After four years, Hanna gives up, leaves him, and moves to Australia. And soon thereafter, Rivo, with whom she has shared her life, takes his own. Director Keedus documents these events in the past tense, combining footage from army camps in the Helmand province of Afghanistan with interviews with Hanna, while entries from her blog are read in voice-over.

A small community of Estonian origin lives in this glorious and peaceful corner of the world — until , when Russia decides to hold the Winter Olympics in Sochi.
Now a section of the village has to give way to a ski jump. Instead, they must stand idly by while business people and the government ruthlessly develop the surroundings. Natural features are indiscriminately destroyed. The courses of streams are changed; highways and train lines are built; hotels and housing are erected.

Finnland, SE , 90 Min. Humans have been fascinated by fire, water, earth, and air since antiquity. For the ancient Greeks, the four elements were the basis of all existence — for each of the protagonists of this film, one of those elements is the basis of everything they do. There is an Austrian base jumper, who not only experiences an adrenaline rush during freefall, but also a sense of the sublime.
A Finnish free diver, who feels free in the complete solitude under the ice. The Spanish fire-fighter, who battles fires with all his strength, yet still harbours a fascination with the flames. And finally, the Austrian cave explorer, who forgets time on his days-long expeditions deep into the rocks. The filmmaker spent four years with these four, all of whom push the envelope. With impressive imagery, she shows each of them in their element, allows them to talk about their thoughts and feelings as they face it.

It combines home video footage that the now year-old Miikka has been making since he was a child, with interviews, creating an unbiased portrait.
At the same time, the film shows us a young man growing up — Miikka used his camera to document not just the world of insects, but also himself getting older.

The mood is tense in Finland — the flood of refugees, combined with cuts to social welfare programmes has pitted people against each other. The search took her to racist rallies, soup kitchens, the local pub, and refugee centres.

The purpose-built town of Visaginas was meant to be the future. But 40 years after its founding, prospects are uncertain for the former Soviet showcase project. In aerial view, Visaginas was supposed to look like a butterfly, with four wings, one for each nuclear reactor. It was built from the ground up in northeastern Lithuania in to house workers at the Ignalia nuclear power plant. But now its future is uncertain; the Soviet Union is a thing of the past, the atomic piles long since shut down.
What remains is the largest pocket of the Russian-speaking minority in Lithuania. She met people who refuse to be beaten down despite the gloomy outlook, who continue to cultivate their traditions and culture, and see Visaginas as their home. They have not given up on the dream of a community, but because of their presumed loyalty to Russia, they face increasing hostility.

Dora ist arbeitslos und in finanziellen Schwierigkeiten. Sie nimmt das Angebot an. Wir sehen Menschen bei der Arbeit zu, und wir sehen die Entbehrungen, die diese Arbeit mit sich bringt.

She accepts the offer. Then, because the job was her last resort, off she went. This film shows life at sea, its unadorned images underscored by gentle guitar sounds. We watch people at work, and we see the hardships this kind of work entails.
Dora has been at sea many times before, but never as a cook. Dora shoulders a great deal, including not least of all, the recurring weeks of separation from her loved ones. Island , 52 Min.

Deutsche Premiere So Fr 3. A film about the curious and tragic life of the super-strongman. He bent handcuffs as if they were paper clips and tore iron chains in two. Back then, everybody in Iceland knew about the man who everyone called simply Reynir the Strong.
That includes Baldvin Z, who says this film was a labour of love, who was fascinated even as a child by the strongman and escape artist. Using archive footage, and interviews with friends and family, he draws a picture of an energetic, yet oddly hidden man. He grew up in care homes and was dismissed by many as a simpleton, but his unusual strength afforded the truck driver a modicum of fame. He even drew some attention as an inventor. But paranoia, alcohol, and violence also played a role in his life, which ended in an early death.
This cinematic portrait often leaves you speechless. Island , 87 Min. Und erfunden hat hier anscheinend jeder schon mal etwas. A place where golden hands, a talent for improvisation, and inventiveness still have value — the garage co-op as a retreat for the post-industrial proletariat. The Soviets once erected entire villages of garages on the outskirts of their cities. These days, Latvian men indulge their individuality at garage co-ops — with no interference from wife and children. In these sheds, amidst the junk parts and motor oil, these outwardly normal men create entire worlds. They weld, hammer, fiddle about, and barbecue.
One might be building animals from scrap metal; another is researching a rather ominous electrotherapy. One is tending birds; the other is forging his first coat of chain mail. And it seems everybody here has discovered something at least once. The film gives us an entertaining look inside a microcosm for men. And both men and women seem to agree it helps keep a marriage healthy. Lettland , 37 Min. Ihre Arbeiten werden europaweit in Ausstellungen gezeigt.

When she was 72, she killed herself; her life remained a mystery to later generations of the family.

Lean singt ein Lied, spielt mit ihrem Onkel, teilt sich mit ihrer Schwester einen Lolli. A young girl travels with her family from Syria to Sweden. The war in Syria began six years ago. The film follows events entirely through the eyes of one of those children, allowing us to see it from the point of view of a very young refugee. Three-year-old Lean is on her way to join her grandfather, who lives in Uppsala in Sweden.
There is no narrative to accompany her journey; nor are there any explanatory interviews. Lean sings a song, plays with her uncle, and shares a lollipop with her sister. Those everyday moments in a situation that is almost beyond endurance become a symbol of a rigorous humanism. Norwegen , 70 Min. Seit arbeitet er als Kameramann und Regisseur.

In , the Oslo suburb of Haugenstua was the focus of the Norwegian press. It was there that 19 young men, most of them teenagers, threatened and robbed young people of their own age. Jon Haukeland takes that attack as the starting point to tell the story of Noah. He was peripherally involved in one of the cases, but at trial he gets off lightly. In still, pleasant images, the film gives amateur and professional actors a lot of space, and makes it clear how difficult it is to adapt to a new life.
