Trogen, Appenzell, Schweiz, 23. Maerz 2016 - Die goettliche Ordnung, Standbild Film Szene 73.Directed by Petra Volpe
In 1971, a quaint Swiss village, seemingly untouched by the cultural and social upheavals of the 1960s, anticipates the vote for women’s suffrage. When a shy and well-liked housewife becomes the unexpected beacon of her village’s suffragette movement, a determined group of women cast off the stubborn ways of the village and fight for independence. Directing with a keen eye for sincerity and humor, Petra Volpe captures the inspiring journey of harnessing your voice to both speak truth to power and tell your husband he can do his own laundry. Switzerland’s official submission for the Oscar® for Best Foreign Film.

Muhi 650Films of Conflict & Resolution
Directed by Rina Castelnuovo & Tamir Elterman
Jerusalem-based journalists present an enchanting portrait of a sweet boy from Gaza who finds himself trapped between two conflicting nations. After an immune disorder threatens to take his life as an infant, Muhi is rushed to an Israeli hospital for emergency surgery and into the care of those considered to be his people’s enemy. Unable to leave due to the severity of his condition, the endlessly cheery Muhi and his doting grandfather remain in bureaucratic limbo for seven years—their moving story illustrating the far-reaching impact these paradoxical circumstances hold over the individuals caught in the crosshairs.

Directed by Boris Khlebnikov
This explosive portrait of a fractured marriage follows the young, gifted paramedic Oleg and his wife Katya, who works as a nurse in the hospital’s ER. Headstrong, impulsive, and willing to bend the rules when necessary, Oleg frequently runs afoul of the new management’s new rules that prioritize bureaucracy over the patients’ well-being. As their professional and personal lives collide, Oleg and Katya must deconstruct their familiar spaces in order to rebuild their marriage in this intriguing commentary on the anatomy of a relationship.
