Open Sky

With the arrival of summer, we are excited to announce our new series of ‘Open Sky’ film screenings at outdoor locations across Berlin. This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors whilst watching fascinating and important films on topics ranging from the environment to human rights. Earlier in the year, we honored some of the most vital cinematic works at our annual Cinema for Peace Gala ceremony. Many of the films featured will be shown as part of the ‘Open Sky’ film screening series, which will include 3 different locations and over 10 different movies. These will be followed by stimulating panel discussions, with both experts and film-makers volunteering their thoughts on the themes explored within these films. We look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be a unique and thought-provoking summer screening series.

Ethopia Rising by Mark Dodd

in cooperation with the UNCCD

Ethiopia Rising is the story of the phenomenal environmental transformation of a nation told through the experience of one man, Aba Hawi, who mobilizes an entire community to regenerate the surrounding hillsides, and in doing so saved his village from certain extinction.For a generation brought up on Live-Aid with its images of a desperate nation, little has emerged in the mainstream media to correct this. Ethiopia Rising goes a long way to challenge these out-of-date perceptions.

Hawar – Der Genocide by Düzen Tekkal

in cooperation with Genocide Aler

HÁWAR erzählt von der Reise der Yezidin Düzen Tekkal und ihrem Vater Seyhmus zurück zu ihren Wurzeln. Die Journalistin, die mit ihrer Familie ein glückliches Leben in Deutschland führt, reist zum zum ersten Mal zum Ursprung ihres Glaubens, in die yezidischen Siedlungsgebiete in den Nordirak. Dorthin, wo die Terrormiliz des islamischen Staats unfassbare Gräueltaten verübt.

Es sind Schicksale von Vätern, Müttern und Kindern, die Schreckliches erlebt haben und immer noch erleben. Sie haben die Hoffnung auf Rettung aufgegeben. Ihrem Glauben bleiben sie treu, denn das ist alles was sie noch haben – bis zu ihrem Tod. HÁWAR beweist, dass Völkermorde auch 70 Jahre nach dem Holocaust grausame Realität sind, während die Welt beinahe tatenlos zuschaut. Seit jeher bedeutet HÁWAR in der kurdischen Sprache „Hilferuf“. Heute ist dieses Wort ein Synonym für „Völkermord“.
