A BLACK JESUS

Luca Lucchesi DE, 2020
92 min., OmdU
Das sizilianische Dorf Siculiana leidet unter den üblichen Problemen ländlicher Orte: die Jungen gehen, die Alten bleiben zurück. Ihre Einwohner sind äußerst katholisch, predigen christliche Werte und verehren eine schwarze Jesusfigur. Im selben Ort, jedoch in einer scheinbar parallelen Welt, wartet eine Gruppe von Geflüchteten aus Ghana auf ihre Asylbescheide. Der Alltag im Dorf wird zu einer Kulisse für eine moderne Parabel, in der sich die Ironie dieser Situation zu einer subtilen Kritik an europäischer Heuchelei entfaltet.

So sehr wir Tarantino und seine filmischen Diebstähle auch schätzen, im Rahmen der Sunday Classics zeigen wir im Oktober den originalen DJANGO von 1966, mit Franco Nero in der Hauptrolle. Dieser wird diesen Herbst übrigens stolze 80 Jahre alt, was natürlich nur ein Grund mehr ist, seine ikonischste Filmrolle nochmal hochleben zu lassen.

ASK DR. RUTH

Ryan White US, 2019
100 min., OmeU
Let's talk about sex? Sure!

And who's better at it than Ruth Westheimer, a small but vivacious lady with a strong German accent! “Dr. Ruth”, as she was called on American radio and television, was not afraid to speak up in the 1980s and became a pop icon for her frank advice on sex. Without a trace of shame, she shared her expertise with empathy, charm, humor, and infectious openness. But “Dr. Ruth” even had a lot to tell beyond her public persona - about her childhood in an Orthodox Jewish Family in Germany, about being an orphan in Switzerland, about her years in Palestine or her three marriages.

In cooperation with Jüdisches Film Festival Wien.

JONATHAN AGASSI SAVED MY LIFE

Tomer Heymann DE, IL, 2018
106 min., OmeU
Director Tomer Haymann followed Jonathan Agassi, one of the world’s most successful gay porn stars, for several years through different stations of the sex industry. The film captures the birth and genesis of the carefully curated, larger-than-life porn persona Agassi and his fame that is substantially based on breaking taboos. It is a film about sexual fantasies, the world of porn between Israel and Germany, but also about a loving and encouraging mother-son-relationship that challenges common family concepts. “Jonathan Agassi saved my life” not only focuses on Agassi’s stardom and his revolutionary impact on the porn industry, but also on the backstage experience of a destructive lifestyle.

Heleni Smuha Clara Ràfols Pérez ES, 2020
64 min., OmeU
Seven women and one non-binary person of different ages and sexualities embark on a journey towards a deeper understanding of their relationship with masturbation. The protagonists narrate their personal experiences in spoken interviews and through writing, allowing them to delve into their memories, emotions, and personal transformations concerning a subject that for almost everyone, at some point in their lives, has been taboo. Talking about different techniques, sex toys or how masturbation had affected their relationships, the protagonists create a sphere for normalization of female self-pleasure and provide inspiration to continue these conversations.

DIE TRAURIGEN MÄDCHEN AUS DEN BERGEN with pre-film FUDLIAKS! ZERFETZT DIE GESCHLECHTER!

Candy Flip Theo Meow DE, 2019
82 min., OmeU
Four depressive teenage girls withdraw from patriarchal society to start a new life in a mountain hideout. Isolated from society, they transform their misery and melancholia into pornography for their web project "The Sad Girls of The Mountains" and use the money they earn to fund their survival and to support Kurdish militia groups. The girls see their sadness as an act of countercultural resistance and want to weaponize the so-called male gaze. The arrival of two reporters intending to make a documentary about them changes the dynamics in their feminist micro-utopia.

A mockumentary stuffed with witty social criticism!

I AM THE TIGRESS

Philipp Fussenegger Dino Osmanovic AT/DE/US, 2020
80 min., OmeU
Tisch “The Tigress” Thomas was born to be on stage. The 47-year-old mother and grandmother had toughened up her body - as much as her mind - during her transformation into a bodybuilder and stage goddess. “I Am The Tigress” captures her most spectacular stage performances as well as her most fragile moments behind the scenes.

The documentary shows “The Tigress” moving from her work as a dominatrix to the intimate circle of her family and friends. It portrays a woman that seems to be the incarnation of body positivity, and at the same time is a vulnerable person fighting against self-doubt and social discrimination.

ALFABETO SEXUAL

André Medeiros Martins BR, 2020
80 min., OV
After avant-garde experiments like “Penis Poetry” and “Alfredo doesn’t like goodbyes”, director André Medeiros Martins is back with a new project called “Sexual Alphabet”. The film portrays Andrés' current love affair with his boyfriend Hudson de Carvalho from a set of pornographic and psychedelic experiments that forge both the couple and their doubts regarding the very condition of the romance they are experiencing.

Torn between the non-monogamous porn sceneries that he creates in his films and his personal desire for conventional relationship concepts, director Andrés Medeiros Martins offers a collage-like cinematic reflection about his sexual life.
