PURE CHARCOAL

German Film #3

Pure Charcoal (93min, rating exempt) Wearing heavy rubber boots, Fränz Röösli climbs atop his charcoal pile and starts poking holes into what he calls the “Grind” – the dome of the pile, which reaches four meters above ground. White smoke rises from the holes, curling around the charcoal burner to the whims of the wind before it is carried off into the dark of night. In calm, stunning images, the documentary draws the viewer into the archaic world of charcoal burning.

MAGICAL MYSTERY

German Film #4

Magical Mystery (111min, M) Following a breakdown and a stay in a psychiatric ward, Charly Schmidt lives in assisted accommodation in Hamburg. He’s kicked his alcohol and drug habit when he meets old friends from Berlin, who now earn a lot of money as music producers. Instead of his prescribed holiday in the Lüneburg Heath, Charly takes a job with them: he’ll drive their tour bus through Germany and take responsibility for running their rave tour.
