Berlin

Symphonie einer Großstadt, Walter Ruttmann, Documentary, 65 min, Germany, 1927, Silent Film, Subtitled in English & Arabic

A train speeds through the country on its way to Berlin, then gradually slows down as it pulls into the station. It is very early in the morning, about 5:00 AM, and the city is mostly quiet. But before long, there are some signs of activity, and a few early risers are to be seen on the streets. Soon the new day is well underway - it's just a typical day in Berlin, but a day full of life and energy.

Anders Helgeson and Karin af Klintberg, Documentary, 100 min, Sweden, 2015, Swedish, Somali and English, Subtitled in English and Arabic

A group of young men who fled the war in Somalia end up in a rural town in Sweden. Integration there is tough and something needs to be done! Local entrepreneur Patrik Andersson has an idea, why not use sport as a bridge to get people closer to each other?  And so guys who have never known temperatures below 20 degrees become the first ever Somali national team for Bandy ice hockey and make it to the World Championship in Siberia. Bravely doing something that hasn't been done before, they are determined to make it all the way to Siberia. The road there will be bumpy, but knowing that they will be standing on the ice, singing along to their national anthem, playing for their country, gives them the strength to carry on. A story on racism and fear, but also on overcoming them sometimes with a smile, an extra punch and a lot of training.

The film has won the Audience Award at Budapest International Documentary Festival and the Audience Award at Hamburg Film Festival. It was also nominated for the Audience Award at Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival.
