Milltown, Montana
Time inscribes itself into Rainer Komers' meticulously composed images and impressive sound collages of MILLTOWN, MONTANA. Each picture tells a story of a place that once belonged to the largest mining area in the United States that was contaminated by toxic substances and heavy metals. But the film does not only show the devastated landscape. Without dialogue, it sensitively portraits the people living and working there: cowboys branding their calves, Blackfeet Indians laying down the foundation stone for a new educational center, trappers and golfers, workers in a silicium plant, old miners, and young scholars competing in a mining contest.MILLTOWN, MONTANA is visibly scarred by man and trapped in a postindustrial phase of standstill. By alluding to its former wealth but showing the area's actual lack ofprospects, the film dramatically undermines the image of the American Dream.

Time's Up
Being confronted with the finiteness of life in a car accident while having theirunborn baby inside, the filmmakers Marie-Catherine Theiler and Jan Peters suddenlyrealize that their lives have become way too hectic. They spend too much precioustime rushing from one appointment to another, hunting deadline after deadline. Theydecide to change their lives and slow down. But how? During a humorous odysseyfrom one time-expert to the next, Marie-Catherine and Jan ask the questions most of us would like to know the answers to… Within the timeframe of Marie-Catherine's pregnancy, the directors of TIME'S UP leave no stone unturned, examiningwith wit and irony how today's society – and above all they themselves – deal with the subject of 'time'.

Psychedelic Revolution '67
1967: A creative interaction between the arts, music and drug experiments culminate in the "Summer of Love" - a dramatic point of change for youth culture and society. The Filmmaker travelled the centres of the "Psychedelic Revolution" to find out from some of the survivors what happened to their attitudes and utopian ambitions. The film presents rare archive footage.

One Day Today Will be Once
In a small church in Halberstadt, in the former East Germany, a pipe organ plays avant-garde composer John Cage's „Organ2/ASLSP" (Organ squared/As SLow aS Possible) a single note at a time - and will do so without interruption until the year 2640, resulting in a 639-year long concert. In a humorous but also thoughtful way the film shows different sides of this mind-boggling project: on one hand the long and overly intellectual wrestles among the initiators, on the other the volunteering staff members' direct and practical way of dealing with all the work that surrounds such a project. These two perspectives make ONE DAY TODAY WILL BE ONCE a film bursting with moving as well as humorous moments - attuned to the question of humanity's perception of time.

The Other Chelsea – A Story from Donetsk
Donetsk is the coal-mining area of Ukraine. Here most people work for low wages in the run down mines, while others make a lot of money. No matter which side of the social divide you are on, coming from Donetsk you will almost certainly be an opponent of the Orange Revolution and a fan of the local football team, Shakhtar Donetsk. Billionaire Akhmetov invests heavily in the club, which is becoming a major European force during the season followed by the film. Yet this sporting success funded by an Oligarch fortune only seems to highlight the wider social and political stagnation of the region. Off the pitch, the outlook appears bleak...
