the time in history where we could do it, we fail it's failing, but it's still needs a lot of energy to go forward. to to become really who we are as a people, we need this freedom, we need to face and we need to be able to play. and i feel like our culture is cinema. is that space for us to play, to try to understand who we are and to show it to ourselves. we 1st met how she was coca in 2016. he was living in the middle of a was own in the new mountains and south saddam. he participated in the bell and the talents program after making the award winning documentary beat of the anti, the film about music i to get what
you learn about the war using music. so within that, i can see, you know, music and culture on daily life and concentrate on people will actually move to the new mountains in 2012. as a war raged between the government and ethnic groups fighting for independence and the right to that own cultural identity. it was a war for resources, self determination, and over the role of religion. you scared like you naturally scared everybody around you scared. everybody is running into foxholes. there's a moment when you come out that you want to make sure everybody's ok. there's that moment of fear, but as soon as you notice everybody's ok, then there's that moment of extreme happen over the
huge coca one, the dance talk commentary audience award at the 2014 toronto film festival before moving to the new mountains. he had lived in new york, but he gave up his secure existence to support his people. living in brooklyn, there had my little 60 bike that i love. and it's an easy life is these fun is very creative. but my work there doesn't matter. wow, the simple thing of being in her words, i'm just my presence makes a difference. her jewish cook, i walk as a wall chronicler, organized theater workshops, and set up an artist collective in 2018. he made his 1st fiction film, an anti war comedy. akasha is about up none a soldier and his girlfriend, lena, after they spend the night together, at man gets into trouble when lena becomes jealous with somebody referred to foreclosure. you know,
but then the sharpening from then on jimmy not the dish. and the funny little, you know, the last year the director shot the phone with a small team area without running electricity. it premiered at the 2018 finished film festival. when we 1st started making the film with the film that we were making for ourselves, we felt we need, we, we had that need for coming together and celebrating. and this is where it's covered from my 1st documentary. be said that enough. so with a case, shall we wanted to create a film that had the backdrop of war, but still had enough humour and life, and whatnot and questioning of revolution and what it means that it means a lot to us. and it was amazing that the film actually also ended up in huge festivals and went around the math,
constantine voc and christopher own when they participated in the 2019 nala thomas program that worked together on the international co production. kappa. now konstantin ball kinds editor and christ of own as cinematographer cafe. now put the spotlight on people fighting for their survival for children in the slums that they route like 12 year old zane's. that was the moment when you realize that the fiction that we're doing that the reality of surpassing the fiction that we're doing and that made everyone realize how important this fictionalized version that we're creating here is and that these topics do need to be talked about children without childhood do you see those goods on the streets? everywhere you'd see families also between lanes and like on the highway, you're just just ignore them. you just treat them like animals or like ghosts that
that don't exist, but they're everywhere. non professional lankton were plucked from the streets and much of the film was shot from them. perspective. it was not so much the story, but the ra, direct and truthful way of telling the story that made the film so exceptional. in 2018 at one, the jury prized at the cannes film festival and in 2019 it was nominated for an oscar. it's easy to blame people, but it's much harder to understand why they act the way that they act. what is wrong with the system that makes them act this way? how were they brought up? ah, we caught up with him again this year, but not together. kevin now may not have one the best foreign film oscar 2 years ago, but the nomination propelled the careers forward and christ of our own one the germans,
cinematography award. constantine bulk is currently in a route conducting research, while kristof own is on the flight of tour. they were both invited to join the academy of motion, picture arts and sciences after the oscar nomination. the whole experience in a lead for us with a door open or even beyond the academy, what it meant. first and foremost. and this is very important to us there to get to put in the doors that we signed with an amazing agency there. and they set up a lot of meetings and they really encouraged us to, to take that step. and especially for you, chris, i get kids from, from, from across the world at the moment to choose from which, which is what i would have been looking for. last summer, he was the cinematographer for the international co production, the man who sold his skin janisa submitted it as its entry for the best foreign film oscar. and it made
a short list of 15 films. my love story begins in syria. some ali is in love with a b was when henry and henry was always towns on the revolution will be his own doing. the police will hunt him down, crossing him to the level. no one stays behind. mary's diplomats and moved to belgium. will some ever see her again? an artist office upon the thing solution. and sam becomes a living canvas. my soul. i want to go
open sugar. my daughter started to feel is because she was china. listen, don don, i like the idea of turning about into this over there was a means to that person to become abused and that come to just blew me away. with my latest work, i'm exploring real biting satire and traveling around the world is going to be looking at all this work about as a signature. we had that idea of having each scene look like if they thing and have the be like a gallery or a museum, you're, you're, you're walking onto and looking at those different pieces of art. so the, so the idea was to have of the different
there was so we created those in the data from each other, but also all of them connected. and i was scared. now my biggest thing, this movie was that at the end it turns out like a music video because it's all not because i've seen looking that different, deceitful otwell stage in a visually lash fashion. the critically acclaimed film celebrated its premier at the venice film festival. it also stars, monica bellucci and cynical gallery. oh, now here's me this part of the explanation. the real what is inside. i almost feel like you guys were sort of like subconsciously inspired by the artist that did this in real life in the he had to the real guy. the work is called tin.
he, he turned the human being into a piece of art which inspires color to write the script. and i feel like, yeah, that twisted in this is, is still in how you guys translated that with your visual beauty and the wickedness of the crib. while christopher own was busy shooting a co production in the summer of 2020 konstantin bark was in bay route. on august the 4th 2020 the same day that 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate exploded in the port. he witnessed a nightmare up close and then the mushroom appeared out of nowhere and then took a few seconds before the shock wave it out. but you know, i think the scariest thing was not knowing what was going on as to what does this mean, this war,
someone attacking or what was happening were just so foolish and didn't realize what was going on. ah ah man, it's john carr who is to blame for this, arrested catastrophe, but many blame the politicians and lost faith in the state. the federal for k for 2 minutes. the quick lane loans than men during the young people in particular the future and they route or 11 or any more constant in bulk edits. a video has musician, friends. i think that the fraction really go beyond the physical destruction and
really destroy something in people in, in our friends or family in their hearts and souls. and that destruction is much, much harder to fix if it's even possible than the physical destruction of constantine bulk. once to process the imaging interrupted research on a project and together with a nice woman, is developing the script for botox, a root, a dark satire that takes aim at the widespread corruption in the country. it's a film from the fashioned scene that tries to highlight the corruption and methodism behind the beautiful veneer. financial support for the development of the screen play has already been approved in germany. constantine bulk plans to shooting a root into. if we want to help in any way, it's by telling stories from here. and it's also by making
a film here and employing our friends in the, in the film industry and like, you know, bringing, there's so much talent here. so the best thing we can do is make something here and shoot. ah ah ah, it's nice to get in there. so young and they are carrying bag economy made in bangladesh, town for story of shima seems to be working in a factory. an accident occurs a colleague dies, and shima realizes how defenseless the work is on my system.
but i'm going to talk about this other guy only the women can help themselves, you know, quite a piece of furniture. and it does seem that he said, going to act must be finish on this thought provoking statements by the activist. think, same and a fuse shamans anger. she decides to form a union. it's based on a true story that has teamsters dahlia, director, ruby at hussein met her while researching the textile industry. when i met her, she immediately expressed interest. and i also feel that her life story was also very dramatic. that leaving home when you're 12 and coming to the city already
said something about this young woman. if she wanted to feed it, you know, she will fight. and that's what i think really attracted me to her. that i was like, wow, you know, she had that sir. there's something special about her when i was writing, never talked to her a lot. and of course the script we shared with her. she lives in the rehearsal with our actors. she talked to how to operate this doing the theme. so we became, office became friends, you know, the actors and dana. and so we are wanting to tell the story to get back with the film dahlia convinced one, because to form a union, if we don't want to do it again, we don't know this is diana avoid is that what we're doing is i'm a lot of local so i, we're not working with
you know, what, i think when the teams got disciplined people started losing their job. so the boss finding out that when most danielle said that her friends turn to her enemies because then they're like, no, i don't wanna lose my job because i can feed my family to feed my children. it's really important that i have shopped up. i think these women, these young women are very much aware of their right. but maybe a lot of them do not have it in them to fight to the end. you know, takes a real leader to do that. oh, i was saying spent 2 years researching before filming, and bangladesh. she likes working with women, both in front of the camera and behind it. the director also spends time in the us,
but her works focuses on her home country. she wants with n g 's needs workshops for women and trains female directors. she's also creating an initiative to prevent domestic violence group. i anticipate film premier that the toronto film festival and was shown in la cano. one of those are not going to thanks to a young woman's courage. the 1st garment workers union was founded and registered against the odds. so i think it's happening about women. right. so what happened is i think all of these things have happened because of the activism of workers. fact director actually coca his comedy akasha has fun with cliches for them. so the,
all of the wanted to make sure is to show that the idea of war and how little this was a souvenir driven it soon. and i don't know if i'm good. let me know, did i lead mentally? she 5, no, not eliminate the as a. so i was going to get the allowed to the look on august and i wanted to make sure that we don't just keep having this heroic idea of worn words. it's amazing thing and to become a man and to become a hero and to go to war. so if i wanted to destroy that, but at the same time i wanted to make sure that the causes veal so. so that balance of b bar fighting for real rights and all that at the same time fighting the really dumb, crazy thing that hopefully wars will stop. so i wanted all that to be played with shoots during the rainy season. when the fighting stops in the loop. of mountain
villages in the film, in the lena, and i think they do a level mileage unless you read about i look on the list, there's a happy ending at 9 remorsefully returns to lena, but he has to learn at women a much stronger than he thought i'm set up most of what a nice cinematographer, christopher own enjoying working with women on films like the satirical drama, the man who saw his skin. it was a big success for him. thanks to an intensive collaboration with the writer director counter then from to new z as in 2021. the film will net christopher another nomination for the german cinematography prize.
