Krigernes børn / Children of the Warriors. 1979.

Krigernes børn / Children of the Warriors. 1979.
 DK. Krigernes børn er en dansk ungdomsfilm, som havde premiere den 27 august 1979, instrueret af Ernst Johansen efter Hans Ovesens roman Krigerdrengen Nelo. Den har en spilletid på 89 minutter.
Den handler om at fem unge fra et brutalt og utrygt krigersamfund, som de flygter fra. De kommer til en ø, der virker mere civiliseret, men erfarer, at der også her findes vold og undertrykkelse under den idylliske overflade.
EN. In the 70's, a lot of Danish intellectuals and film-makers had socialist ideas. There were a lot of films, telling about the inhumanity of capitalism. This one is about a group of children fleeing from a cruel stoneage society with violence, exploitation and sexual abuse. The title: Krigernes børn = Children of the warriors. The children make a timetravel and end up in a modern capitalistic society. Which soon turns out to be just as unfair and violent as the stoneage society. It comes to a sort of confrontation, I guess nobody quite understands, whats really happening in this bizarre movie. But the real world turned out even more bizarre than the movie. It could be viewed as irrelevant - but just after the films release, one of the actors, a 15-year old girl, committed suicide, jumping in front of a Copenhagen commuter train. Leaving a note, telling that she was forced to have sex with the director during the film sessions! The director admitted, was jailed and made no more films. And everybody has been trying to forget this film ever since!
Director: Ernst Johansen.

Christa / Swedish Fly Girls. 1971.

Christa / Swedish Fly Girls. 1971.
 Swedish Fly Girls is a 1971 drama film, also known as Christa. The English title is misleading, since the lead character is Danish.
Christa is a 23-year old Danish single mother, who as a stewardess meets many men. While she enjoys her promiscuity and carefree, urban single lifestyle, Christa seeks marriage with a man who will accept both her and her son Rolf, who lives with her parents.
As Christa forms temporary relationships with an Italian businessman (who does not want to be a stepfather), an American artist (who wants an open marriage), and a French conductor (who tells her that he is too dedicated to music to give her what she wants), a private detective follows her. Torben, wealthy and reckless heir to a family fortune and Rolf's father, tried to force Christa to abort their son. He insists to her that she will return to him and secretly builds a library of dossiers on her lovers, while his business empire collapses from overaggressive expansion.
London lawyer Derek is Christa's most serious relationship; she accepts his proposal, and plans to move to Australia with him. Torben threatens to use the dossiers and his greater financial resources to gain custody of Rolf, forcing her to end the engagement. After his last hope for saving his company fails, however, Torben commits suicide in front of Christa. The film ends with Derek, Christa, and Rolf reuniting.
Director: Jack O'Connell.
Cast: Birte Tove, Baard Owe, Clinton Greyn, Daniel Gélin, Paul Rossilli, Cyrus Elias, Inger Stender, Kjeld Jacobsen, Bjørn Puggaard-Müller, Mogens Skot-Hansen.

Torzók / Abandoned. 2001.

Torzók / Abandoned. 2001.
HU. Soproni Áron kilenc éves. Szülei fél éve váltak el, a bíróság a fiút az apjának ítélte, aki pár hónap küszködés után a gyermeket intézetbe adja. 1960-ban vagyunk, pár évvel a forradalom után. Áron megérkezik a nevelőotthonba. Az intézetben vasfegyelem van: az ötvenkét gyereket három nevelő és az igazgató tartja kordában, nem éppen humánus eszközökkel.
A Torzók elsősorban lélekrajz és lelkiismeret tanulmány. Elembertelenedett világot ábrázol. Egyfajta evilági pokol-víziót. Képeit a németalföldi festményeket megidéző túlvilági időtlenség, szomorú szépség, hideg, szürkés kék éjszakai fények visszafogottsága hatja át. Volker Schlöndorff első filmje, Az ifjú Törless vagy Szász János Wittman fiúkja tárt fel hasonlóan kegyetlen világot, melyben gyermek főhőseiknek az erőszak élvezete és gyűlölete között kellett választania.
EN. Abandoned (Hungarian: Torzók) is a 2001 Hungarian film directed by Arpád Sopsits. It was Hungary's submission to the 74th Academy Awards for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, but was not accepted as a nominee.
Áron is a happy child in his family. But at some point things take a different turn, and his mother starts to lose her health rapidly. As this happens, the man in charge decides what's best for Áron without consulting the young boy's opinion, and the boy finds himself thrown out of his warm home into an orphanage in the woods. He's utterly displeased by what's happening, without knowing he has yet to face much worse. After a hard time getting over the harrassment of his classmates and being accepted as one of them, another obstacle on the way to his peace of mind faces him: His obnoxious teachers. He has no intention of being bad, but it's beyond his ability to blend into the revolting place he's in. The nasty treatment of the teaching crew gets the better of him, and he's not all that calm and passive anymore. But that leads into unpleasant events which Áron himself wouldn't want.
Director: Árpád Sopsits.
Cast: Tamás Mészáros, Szabolcs Csizmadia, Attila Zsilák, Péter Müller, Imre Thúri, Krisztián Tóth, Zoltán Nádházi, Pál Mácsai, László Gálffi, László Szabó, Krisztina Somogyi.

Ninfetas do Sexo Selvagem. 1983.

Ninfetas do Sexo Selvagem. 1983.
 1. In this one, a couple is watching their two young daughters play on a beach from their yacht when suddenly the thing explodes. The girls grow into youthful nymphs on the seemingly deserted island (there's a pre-industrial village elsewhere in this place that's terrorized by a hairy brute with a penchant for rape). One day an astronaut washes ashore and befriends the two ladies and falls for one of them. Then shit turns sour. Completely unexpected ending and animal violence included. Lame XXX sex scenes and language barrier aside, this is a strangely engrossing film.
2. Young family on a yacht floating on the waves of the tropical seas, moored to some islets which seemed initially, and while their two daughters playing on the beach, unreasonable parents managed to blow up the boat with him. Children left alone on the island, they managed to survive, and now they have grown up, and the island was not so uninhabited.

7. Growing Up: A New Approach to Sex Education, No. 1. 1971.
 Growing Up is a sex education film for schools, 23 minutes in length, first shown in April 1971, which was made by Dr Martin Cole. It is now available as part of The Joy of Sex Education DVD and was described by one critic as "the most famous and controversial inclusion", and by Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian as the "undoubted masterpiece of this double-DVD set".
At the time of its release it was said to be "the most explicit and frank film ever made for use in schools", and attracted condemnation by Mary Whitehouse, Lord Longford, Margaret Thatcher and members of the Women's Liberation Movement who all, excepting Thatcher, attended the first public screening. Made two years before its earliest public showing, Cole though soon regretted a traditionalist description of gender roles in the film's opening commentary. The function of women was described as "giving birth to children", while it claimed men were "better at giving birth to ideas", a sequence which the Women's Liberation Movement objected to. There was a version of the film shown to Aston University students earlier for feedback prior to the final version being released. It features scenes rather than drawings of naked people, which included intercourse and masturbation. Teachers and pupils gave it positive feedback, but the absence of a discussion of venereal disease (VD) was noted by sympathetic reviewers.
The film triggered a national controversy;"Educationally speaking, it is a rotten film", Whitehouse said after viewing the film, "which makes children no more than animals." Margaret Thatcher, then secretary of state for education who had sent an advisor to view the film, told the House of Commons on 21 April that she was "very perturbed" at the thought of the film being shown in schools and suggested local education authorities consider it "with extreme caution".
After insisting on a screening, the education authority in Birmingham, where Cole lived, banned the film from being shown in the city's schools. There is no record of the film being shown to school children anywhere by the end of 1971, although it was shown to students at Oxford University.
Director: Arnold L. Miller.
Writer: Martin Cole.
Cast: Martin Cole (Narrator).

Erziehung zum Ungehorsam / L'éducation à la désobéissance. 1969.

Erziehung zum Ungehorsam / L'éducation à la désobéissance. 1969.
 Dokumentarfilm über das gleichnamige Sachbuch, in welchem sich Gerhard Bott mit Kinderläden, einer alternative zum Kindergarten, beschäftigt.
In einem im Dezember 1969 ausgestrahlten Fernsehfilm von Gerhard Bott mit dem Titel "Erziehung zum Ungehorsam" wurde die Erziehung in den Kinderläden einer breiteren Öffentlichkeit vorgestellt. Der Film löste eine heftige Diskussion aus. Er kontrastierte die traditionelle Erziehung in den Kindergärten mit der neuen "zwangsfreien" in den Kinderläden. Ein besonderer Akzent lag dabei auf der Sexualerziehung. Während die Kindergärtnerin im Film die Kinder beim Mittagsschlaf streng ermahnt, ihre Hände über der Decke zu halten, dürfen die Kinder in den Kinderläden nackt herumlaufen und sich auch gegenseitig – im Rahmen von Sexualaufklärung – an ihren Geschlechtsteilen berühren.
Eine Diskussion über die heutige Bedutung der "antiauthoritären Erziehung" ist auf jeden Fall möglich und erwünscht.
Die Dokumentation ›Erziehung zum Ungehorsam‹ von Gerhard Bott wurde im Dezember 1969 im ARD-Fernsehen ausgestrahlt. Damit wurde eine breite Öffentlichkeit zum ersten Mal mit den Erziehungszielen und -methoden der antiautoritären Kinderläden konfrontiert. Nach der Sendung riefen etwa 200 Menschen beim Sender an und 646 positive oder empörte Zuschriften gingen bei der ARD ein.
In dem Buch dokumentiert Gerhard Bott die Arbeit von Elternkollektiven aus Westberlin, Frankfurt a. M. und Stuttgart und stellt ihre Erfahrungsberichte aus mehrjähriger Praxis vor. Botts Buch erlebte zahlreiche Auflagen und gehört neben der ›Sexfront‹ von Günter Amendt zu den meistbeachteten Büchern über Sexualerziehung und antiautoritäre Erziehung im März Verlag.

Daddy Longlegs / Go Get Some Rosemary. 2009.
 After months of being alone, sad, busy, sidetracked, free, lofty, late and away from his kids, Lenny, 34 with graying frazzled hair, picks his kids up from school. Every year he spends a couple of weeks with his sons Sage, 9, and Frey, 7. Lenny juggles his kids and everything else all within a midtown studio apartment in New York City. He ultimately faces the choice of being their father or their friend all with the idea that these two weeks must last 6 months. In these two weeks, a trip upstate, visitors from strange lands, a mother, a girlfriend, "magic" blankets, and complete lawlessness seem to take over their lives. The film is a swan song to excuses and responsibilities; to fatherhood and self-created experiences, and to what it's like to be truly torn between being a child and being an adult.

Left to their own devices, the two children learn to cope with hunger, the cold, and the everyday cruelty in a devastated country.

Wir sind doch keine lahmen Enten. 1988.
Nun sind endlich die Sommerferien herangekommen. Marco (Tobias Blume) und Tobi (René Hahn) haben vorab viele Pläne geschmiedet, die aus ihrer Sicht geeignet sind, die gesamten acht Wochen Ferien entsprechend abwechslungsreich und unter Jungs zu gestalten. Dann aber kommt die “schlechte” Nachricht: Marco soll für eine Zeit in ein Ferienlager ins Erzgebirge fahren. Was ist nun mit den schönen Vorhaben der beiden?
Um in dieser Hinsicht nicht alles über Bord werfen zu müssen und gemeinsame Abenteuer erleben zu können, überredet Marco seinen Freund, ihn mit Pferd und Wagen von zu Hause bis zum Ferienlager zu begleiten - das Ganze natürlich auf Umwegen, versteht sich! Und in der Weise beginnen die beiden Jungen dann eine interessante, abenteuerliche Expedition. Alles verläuft dann aber nicht ganz ohne kleine “Wehehchen” , so dass sie ziemlich lädiert im Ferienlager eintreffen. Als sie sehen, wie vielfältig das Lagerleben ist, ärgern sie sich, nicht schon früher eingetroffen zu sein.

Chiedo asilo / Seeking Asylum. 1979.

Chiedo asilo / Seeking Asylum. 1979.
 IT. Chiedo asilo è un film del 1979 diretto da Marco Ferreri, vincitore dell'Orso d'argento, gran premio della giuria al Festival di Berlino del 1980.
Per la prima volta in una scuola materna di Corticella (Bologna) prende servizio un maestro di sesso maschile. Roberto, questo il suo nome, è un eccellente educatore, che stabilisce subito un ottimo rapporto con i bambini (che fra l'altro apprezzano moltissimo l'insolita presenza non "materna" nel corpo insegnante), e con le colleghe; tuttavia i suoi metodi educativi, piuttosto anticonvenzionali e ispirati ad una grande libertà, lo porteranno ad avere alcuni problemi con i tutori dell'ordine. Roberto instaura una relazione con Isabella, madre nubile della sua alunna Michela, e la donna si ritrova un'altra volta incinta; inoltre si lega di particolare amicizia con Gianluigi, un bambino affetto da disturbi comportamentali, che non parla e si alimenta pochissimo e in considerazione di questo viene allontanato dall'asilo per essere ospitato in una casa di cura. Nell'estate successiva Isabella, prossima al parto, manifesta l'intenzione di trasferirsi in Sardegna dove possiede un cinema dismesso. Roberto, pur non espressamente invitato a seguirla, la accompagna insieme a un gruppo di bambini fra cui Gianluigi. Proprio nei giorni in cui Isabella dà alla luce il suo secondo bambino Gianluigi dà segni di guarigione.
EN. Roberto has a new job as the teacher at a nursery school. The first child he meets is Gianluigi, who's mute. Roberto is spirited, bringing a TV into class, then a donkey. He takes children on an unscheduled field trip to their fathers' plant. He dates Isabella, the mother of one of his students, and soon she's pregnant. He's moody about it, so Isabella leaves for her family's abandoned movie theater in Sardinia, but not before Roberto is briefly arrested and questioned about past radical activity. He takes ten children, including Gianluigi, to Sardinia for the baby's birth, and there, surrounded by the sea, the mother of us all, he and Gianluigi play out their surprising bond.

Dead Birds. 1963.

Dead Birds. 1963.
 Dead Birds is a 1963 documentary film by Robert Gardner about the Dani people of New Guinea. It was produced as part of the Harvard-Peabody Expedition to study the highlands of New Guinea, at that time one of the few remaining areas in the world uncolonized by Europeans.
The premiere of Dead Birds took place at the Loeb Drama Center at Harvard University in October 1963. In 1998, this film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
DEAD BIRDS is a film about the Dani, a people dwelling in the Grand Valley of the Baliem high in the mountains of West Irian. When I shot the film in 1961, the Dani had an almost classic Neolithic culture. They were exceptional in the way they focussed their energies and based their values on an elaborate system of intertribal warfare and revenge. Neighboring groups of Dani clans, separated by uncultivated strips of no man's land, engaged in frequent formal battles. When a warrior was killed in battle or died from a wound and even when a woman or a child lost their life in an enemy raid, the victors celebrated and the victims mourned. Because each death had to be avenged, the balance was continually being adjusted with the spirits of the aggrieved lifted and the ghosts of slain comrades satisfied as soon as a compensating enemy life was taken. There was no thought in the Dani world of wars ever ending, unless it rained or became dark. Without war there would be no way to satisfy the ghosts. Wars were also the best way they knew to keep a terrible harmony in a life which would be, without the strife they invented, mostly hard and dull. DEAD BIRDS has a meaning which is both immediate and allegorical. In the Dani language it refers to the weapons and ornaments recovered in battle. Its other more poetic meaning comes from the Dani belief that people, because they are like birds, must die. In making DEAD BIRDS certain kinds of behavior were followed, never directed. It was an attempt to see people from within and to wonder, when the selected fragments of that life were assembled, if they might speak not only of the Dani but also of ourselves. - Robert Gardner.

Meine Kindheit an der See. 2010.

Meine Kindheit an der See. 2010.
 Eine nostalgische Zeitreise ins Norddeutschland der 50er, 60er und 70er Jahre.
Eine Kindheit an der See ist verbunden mit dem Geruch von Schlick, Schiffsdiesel und Fisch. Ob in Rostock, Cuxhaven, am Greifswalder Bodden oder auf der Hallig - Seekinder wachsen mit einem Gefühl von Freiheit auf. "Wir waren den ganzen Tag draußen", erzählt Johann Petersen, der auf der Hallig Langeneß aufgewachsen ist. Aus Seegras und Holz haben er und seine Freunde Hütten am Strand gebaut. "Einmal haben wir da drin Feuer gemacht und aus Versehen die ganze Hütte abgefackelt."
Boy Andresen hat das Leben auf den Halligen noch ohne Strom und fließendes Wasser erlebt. Wenn bei Hochwasser Land unter war, hat er sich gefreut, weil es schulfrei gab und er endlich Zeit hatte, Bücher von Karl May zu lesen. In den Prielen ist Boy mit selbst gebauten Booten rumgeschippert - nur schwimmen hat er nie gelernt. "Hühner und Hallig-Lüt", sagt er in seinem charmanten nordfriesischen Platt, "können nicht schwimmen. Das war schon immer so, Hochwasser hin oder her."...
Director: Claudia Wallbrecht.
Gast: Ludger Abeln (NDR-Moderator), Peter Döbler (Langstreckenschwimmer), Cornelia Linse (ehemalige Weltmeisterin im Rudern und Zweite bei den Olympischen Spielen 1980 in Moskau), Karen Marin (sie erlebte in Eckernförde den Zweiten Weltkrieg), Heidrun Reshöft (Tochter eines Campingplatzbesitzers direkt am Ostseestrand), Claudia Rusch (Journalistin und Schriftstellerin), Saskia Valencia (Schauspielerin).

ป่า / The Forest. 2016.
TH. เป็นหนังผีที่แหวกขนบหนังผีแบบไทยๆ หลายแง่มุม ซึ่งเล่าผ่านมุมมองของผู้กำกับชาวอังกฤษ พอล สเปอร์เรียร์ (Paul Spurrier) ที่อยู่ในไทยมากว่า 10 ปี โดยหนังได้ติดตามชายหนุ่มที่เพิ่งออกจากร่มกาสาวพัสตร์มาเป็นครูยังภาคอีสาน ดินแดนที่มีเรื่องเล่าถึงผีและวิญญาณมากมาย ซึ่งหนึ่งในลูกศิษย์เป็นเด็กหญิงที่ไม่ยอมพูดกับใคร และมักถูกเพื่อนร่วมชั้นรังแก จนทำให้ครูมือใหม่ต้องยื่นมือเข้าช่วย
หนังเล่าถึงขั้วที่แตกต่างโดยใช้ครูหนุ่มและเด็กหญิงเป็นตัวเปรียบเทียบ แม้ว่าทั้งคู่ต้องเผชิญเรื่องราวร้ายๆ ที่มาพิสูจน์ความอดทนเช่นกัน แต่ครูหนุ่มก็พยายามปรับตัวเข้าหาโลกความเป็นจริงหลังจากที่ใช้ชีวิตในโลกอุดมคติมานาน ในขณะที่เด็กหญิงพยายามหลีกหนีจากความจริงอันโหดร้ายเข้าสู่โลกแห่งจินตนาการในป่า โดยมีเด็กหนุ่มลึกลับเป็นเพื่อน
ประเด็นน่าสนใจสะท้อนผ่านหนังเรื่องนี้ ทั้งการปะทะกันของความจริงกับจินตนาการ การต่อสู้เพื่ออุดมการณ์กับการใช้อำนาจอย่างไร้เหตุผล บทบาทหน้าที่ซึ่งสังคมกำหนดกับความต้องการที่แท้จริงของแต่ละคน ความอัปลักษณ์ของภูติผีกับจิตใจที่ดำทมิฬของมนุษย์ การอยู่รอดของคนชายขอบ ความรัก ความตาย ความเศร้า และการยึดติด แต่ทั้งหมดนี้อยู่รวมกันอย่างปนเปและบางครั้งไม่มีการสานต่อ จนทำให้บางประเด็นสื่อสารได้ไม่คมเท่าที่ควร

Stein. 1991. HD.

Stein. 1991. HD.
 DE. Stein ist ein deutsches Filmdrama der DEFA von Egon Günther aus dem Jahr 1991.
DDR-Bühnenstar Ernst Stein bricht am 21. August 1968 aus Protest gegen den Einmarsch der Sowjet- und DDR-Truppen in die CSSR mitten in einer Aufführung ab, verlässt die Bühne für immer, zieht sich in seine alte Villa in Berlin-Wilhelmsruh zurück und verbringt dort ein Leben zwischen Traum und Wahnsinn. Er öffnet keine Briefe mehr, führt stundenlange Telefonate mit einer imaginierten Geliebten in Italien, erhält nur Besuch von Jugendlichen und Kindern, die den Alten behüten und denen seine Villa ein Refugium der freien Entfaltung bietet, woraus schließlich die Opposition gegen den Obrigkeitsstaat entsteht, die zum Ende der DDR führt. Doch als die Mauer fällt, stirbt Stein. – Die Rückkehr des ehemaligen DDR-Regisseurs Egon Günther in die DEFA-Studios.
EN. Actor Ernst Stein, having abdicated from the stage in 1968 in protest of the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, has long since retreated from the world around him.

Young people, tramps and characters of all sorts take refuge with Stein for a short span, carrying the turmoil of the times into his house.
