12/15 HOW TO WIN ENEMIES

Wow! Our Argentinian title HOW TO WIN ENEMIES by Gabriel Lichtmann has won the Schoumann Award for Jewish Cinema at this year‘s edition of the Jerusalem Jewish FF 2015! Congrats, Gabriel and team!!

The Jury‘s statement: „Contemporary Jewish Argentinean life is presented through a rare genre in Jewish cinema: comedy thriller. The film is notable for its captivating plot, excellent acting and the combination of suspense and an accurate dosage of comic elements. In addition, the world of cinema meets new media in a reflexive statement on the cinematic art in the cellular age of YouTube and Facebook. The film presents with wonderful nuance and with the human dramas of love, passion, trust and deceit. The plot is centered on two brothers, both lawyers, who represent the world of law. The boundary between personal and collective law, the world of truth and trust versus the world of lies and betrayal, is presented through the brothers' conflict, in a modern perspective on the biblical story of Cain and Abel.“

Two of our titles - HOME CARE by Slávek Horák and PARADISE TRIPS by Raf Reyntjens - just celebrated their German Premiere at the Mannheim-Heidelberg IFF 2015, where both of them received a Recommendation by the Jury of Cinema Owners! Congratulations, Raf and Slávek!!

For PARADISE TRIPS the Jury argued: "Paradise Trips" literally puts the audience on a bus and not only allows it to immerse itself into the Goatrance scene, but with understanding and in a colourful and agreeable fashion, also tells the story of a father and a son's reconciliation after years of silence.

And for HOME CARE the motivation goes as follows: The Czech nurse Vlasta unexpectedly finds her joy of life again after being diagnosed with cancer. "Home Care" counters the dominating logic of science with a fantastic story of emancipation employing magical images.
