BERLINALE - FEBRUARY 10 – 20, 2022
RIMINI
BY ULRICH SEIDL
Richie Bravo, once upon a time a successful pop star, chases after his faded fame in wintry Rimini. Trapped between permanent intoxication and concerts for busloads of tourists, his world starts to collapse when his adult daughter breaks into his life. She demands money from him that he doesn’t have.

A LITTLE LOVE PACKAGE
by Gastón Solnicki
Vienna, 2019 – the end of an era. The smoking ban in public places means that a part of Kaffeehaus culture has disappeared. Angeliki chooses to buy an apartment with help from her interior designer friend, Carmen but she seems to have something against all of them. A Journey from Vienna to Malaga, via salt flats overcast by mysterious shadows. A homage to the Austrian capital and the bygone splendour in ordinary things.

MUTZENBACHER
by Ruth Beckermann
With an ad in a newspaper, Ruth Beckermann announces a casting call for a film based on a well-known pornographic text. The film, MUTZENBACHER, sees a hundred men confronted with excerpts from the novel, “Josefine Mutzenbacher or The Story of a Viennese Whore”, in an age when sex is more ubiquitous than ever, and yet at same time is met with a highly charged moral environment.

SONNE
By Kurdwin Ayub
Three teenage girls from Vienna twerk in hijab and sing a pop song. A YouTube video of it makes them famous overnight, especially among Kurdish Muslims. Yesmin, the only one of the friends who is Kurdish herself, begins to distance herself more and more from her culture. Nati and Bella, on the other hand, seem fascinated by a world that is strange to them. When the girls meet two young Kurdish patriots, the situation threatens to escalate. A film about young people caught between social media and self-discovery, a story of rebellious young women.

FOR THE MANY - THE VIENNA CHAMBER OF LABOUR
by Constantin Wulff
In Austria, the Chambers of Labour (AK), as the official legal representative for employees, are the daily point of contact for people who are fighting for their rights within the workplace. In direct cinema, the documentary For The Many - The Vienna Chamber of Labour shows this unique institution at a key moment - the preparations for their 100 year anniversary. The various insights highlight the daily actions of the AK team and how the tasks of the Chambers of Labour have changed over time due to digitalization and globalization. A portrait of an institution caught between a rich past and an uncertain future due to the mutations of our economy.
