焦點導演、⼤師經典、最新德語佳作共冶一爐

拍板有限公司將於11月6日至16日期間,第五度與香港歌德學院合作,舉行備受影迷愛戴的「KINO 德國電影節(澳門站) 」。自2016年由拍板引入澳門的德國電影節一直受觀眾歡迎,入場⼈數踴躍。今年受疫情影響,全球影展皆⾯對重重困難,是屆⾹港的德國電影節改為部分以網上舉⾏,⽽澳⾨站則按實際條件繼續以實體形式舉⾏,共放映⼗⼆部多元且精彩的德國電影,其中六部為德國新作品,題材多元;有亮麗視覺去說城市的故事,有⽿⽬⼀新的德語⾳樂劇電影,有意義深遠的兒童電影,當然不會缺乏側重社會和歷史議題的作品。是次影展繼續設有重磅的「焦點導演」單元,重點介紹德國新電影時期另一位非常重要且唯一的女導演 — 瑪格麗特·馮·卓塔,選放她三部不同創作時期的重要作品。是次澳門站「雲溫德斯75特別放映」選放了兩部電影,包括為慶祝雲溫達斯75歲誕辰攝製的紀錄片《雲溫達斯的狂野之途》及榮獲1993年「康城影展」評審團大獎《咫尺天涯》,並會舉行多場影展講座及映後分享會。

開幕電影  法斯賓達自傳式電影  亞洲首映   

今屆「KINO 德國電影節(澳門站) 」奇妙地集合了德國新電影時期的三大巨匠 ,除瑪格麗特·馮·卓塔及雲溫達斯外,開幕片特別選了由Oskar Roehler執導的《壞孩子法斯賓達》,以法斯賓達十餘年的電影生涯為題材,從1969年草創時期的《愛比死更冷》講到1982年俗艷風格的新高峰《水手奎萊爾》,最後結束於他37歲時的猝逝。這位說出「我不放炸彈;我拍電影。」的電影奇才,37年匆匆的⼈⽣,13年的創作⽣涯,有44部作品,當中只有3部是短⽚,長⽚還包括⼀套5集的電視電影和14集的鉅著《柏林·亞歷山⼤廣場》; 不論是否已在2018年KINO澳門站的焦點導演精選看過他的作品,今次必可從另一角度認識這位絕對會刺激思緒的電影奇才。是次放映為康城影展全球首映後的亞洲首映,絕對是澳門觀眾之福。

“Rise Up!  Women!” 焦點導演:瑪格麗特·馮·卓塔

德國新電影受法國新浪潮影響,在1960年代至1980年代的二十多年間,湧現一批影史垂名的導演們,瑪格麗特·馮·卓塔(Margarethe von Trotta)便是其中最為突出的女性導演。馮卓塔自1970年代開始獨立創作,到如今78歲高齡,自編自導十多部電影,不算多產,但《德國姐妹》(Marianne and Juliane, 1981)、《羅莎·盧森堡》(Rosa Luxemburg, 1986),以及千禧後的《玫瑰圍牆》(Rosenstrasse, 2003)、《漢娜·鄂蘭:真理無懼》(Hannah Arendt, 2012)等,都在德國電影史上擲地有聲,每一部都有她鮮明的作者印記。她作品內的每一個女性形象都很美,完全打破了性別陳見,呈現精神上的美,知識份子的美,敢於獨立發聲的美。是屆影展主視覺設計的創作靈感正正來自馮卓塔的作品《羅莎·盧森堡》,縱在高牆困難下,仍是朵不會失去追求自由意志的鏗鏘玫瑰。無獨有飾,是屆多部影片都是從女性角度出發看世界,由兒童至銀髮族,由古至今,個個都是揚眉女子-堅毅、知性、獨特。

多場影展延伸活動  增加闊度與溫度

是屆影展除了在永樂戲院放映外,並會在環境優美的澳門紐曼樞機藝文館放映四場重要作品。包括《蘿莉破壞王》、《羅莎·盧森堡》、《德國姊妹》及《咫尺天涯》,並設映後分享會,分別邀請了本地影評人鄧志堅、香港影評人喬奕思及電影學者林瀚光博士主講;此外,更特別策劃了四場不同主題的講座,分別有哲學分享會—「我們都有「平庸之惡」嗎? —漢娜·鄂蘭的哲學」、「劇場與法斯賓達」、「文學與溫德斯— Peter Handke 與Wim Wenders」以及「Judith Kerr的繪本世界」,讓澳門觀眾從不同藝術面向參與是次影展。

今次「KINO 德國電影節(澳門站) 」是拍板完成電影館營運服務後首個影展活動,非常感恩香港歌德學院的持續支持,讓影展得以再來與澳門觀眾見面。雖然在缺乏場地、資金及贊助下籌辦影展實困難重重,幸得一班孜孜不倦的熱血份子並肩作戰,繼續盡力做到最好的精神,繼續難關難過關關過。路不是一天走出來,可能會跌跌碰碰,只要有觀眾欣賞,相信有天我們的世界會開滿繁花。

KINO Macao 見!Viel Spaß!

German Film Festival — KINO Macao Returns in November

Featuring Director-in-Focus Session, Film Classics and Latest German Works

CUT Co. Ltd. partners with Goethe-Institut Hong Kong for the fifth time to present the popular German Film Festival — KINO Macao between November 6 and 16. Since the introduction to Macao by CUT in 2016, the German Film Festival has gained popularity over the years and attracted a large turnout. In light of COVID-19, all film festivals around the world have met different types of challenges this year, for example, part of the programme of the German Film Festival in Hong Kong had to be held online. KINO Macao, on the other hand, could continue to take place in physical form based on the situation of the city, featuring a total of 12 outstanding German films, six of which are the newest works covering a variety of topics. From an urban tale with stunning visuals to a refreshing German musical to a purposeful and powerful children’s film, the films this year also pay attention to social and historical issues. The programme of KINO Macao 2020 continues to comprise the Director-in-Focus session, which presents three major films of Margarethe von Trotta in different eras, one of the significant directors and the only female auteur during the New German Cinema. There is also Wim Wenders 75 – Special Screening session this year, presenting the documentary Desperado for the 75th birthday of the director and Wenders’ Faraway, So Close!, which won the Grand Prix du Jury at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival. Talks and post-screening sharing sessions are also highlights of KINO Macao 2020.

Opening Film: Asia Premiere of Biography Work About Rainer Werner Fassbinder

The German Film Festival — KINO Macao 2020 highlights the works of three film masters in the New German Cinema, including Margarethe von Trotta, Wim Wenders and Rainer Werner Fassbinder. The opening film of the festival is Enfant Terrible directed by Oskar Roehler, which focuses on the career of Fassbinder, from his debut feature film Lover Is Colder Than Death in 1969 to the powerful, vulgar-style Querelle in 1982 to his death at the age of 37. This movie legend once said, “I don’t throw bombs, I make films.” In a life span of 37 years and a film career spanning over 13 years, the number of Fassbinder’s works totalled 44, including three short films, a television series of five episodes and the 14-part Berlin Alexanderplatz. Whether the audiences watched his works at the Director-in-Focus session in KINO Macao 2018, they could still know more about this inspiring film talent from another perspective this time. What is also thrilling is the screening of Enfant Terrible in Macao marks the Asia premiere of the film after its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. 

“Rise Up! Women!” Director-in-Focus Session: Margarethe von Trotta

Influenced by the French New Wave, the New German Cinema, during the period between the 1960’s and 1980’s, saw the emergence of numerous acclaimed directors. The most exceptional female director from this batch is Margarethe von Trotta, who has started  independent productions since the 1970’s. Aged 78 now, she has written and directed over 10 films, including Marianne and Juliane (1981), Rosa Luxemburg (1986), Rosenstrasse (2003) and Hannah Arendt (2012), which are all highlights of the German cinema and showcase her distinctive auteur style. The images of each female character in her works do not only break conventional gender stereotypes but are also exquisitely crafted to showcase the female aesthetics in the spiritual, intellectual and independent aspects. The main visual design of KINO Macao 2020 is inspired by her masterpiece Rosa Luxemburg, depicting the title character as a rose in pursuit of free will and freedom albeit hardship. Coincidentally, many movies in KINO Macao 2020 are based on a female perspective, from kids to the elderly, from the past to the present, each illustrating visionary and power women — perseverant, intellectual and unique.

Wide Array of Outreach Activities to Enhance Depth and Scope

Apart from Cinema Alegria, KINO Macao 2020 also takes place at Macao Cardinal Newman Center for Culture and Performing Arts, which boasts a serene environment for the screening of four major films — including System CrasherRosa LuxemburgMarianne and Juliane and Faraway, So Close! — followed by post-screening sharing sessions hosted by Macao film critic Quinton Tang, Hong Kong film critic Joyce Yang, and film scholar Dr. Derek Lam. Besides, there are also four talks on different topics this year: Philosophy Workshop: “Do We All Have the Banality of Evil? — Hannah Arendt’s Philosophy”, “Theatre and Rainer Werner Fassbinder”, “Literature — Peter Handke and Wim Wenders”, and “Judith Kerr’s World of Picture Books”. These talks allow the local audiences to engage with the film festival through artistic perspectives. 

The German Film Festival — KINO Macao 2020 is the first film festival presented by CUT after the end of its operation of Cinematheque‧Passion. We are grateful for the continuous support from Goethe-Institut Hong Kong so that KINO Macao could be held once again. It is a challenging task to organize a film festival in the absence of venues, funding and sponsorships, but it’s fortunate that there is a group of vigorous and diligent film enthusiasts, who work side by side to strive for the best results and to overcome any challenges. Rome wasn’t built in a day. There might be ups and downs along the path, but as long as the audiences appreciate our efforts, it is believed that our world will see the blooms of flowers one day. 

See you all in KINO Macao! Viel Spaß!
