  • Kopfjäger von Borneo / Head Hunters of Borneo. 1936.
     DE. Baron von Plessen ("Insel der Dämonen") erzählt die Geschichte zweier verfeindeter Dörfer, in denen ungeachtet dieser Feindschaft eine Liebesbeziehung entsteht - Romeo und Julia im tropischen Regenwald.
    Die Urwald-Idylle im Dorf Pelben am Mittellauf des Kayan trügt. Ein Stück weiter an dem Urwaldfluss leben noch andere Jäger und es sind auch schon Köpfe gerollt zwischen den verfeindeten Stämmen. Trotzdem existiert ein Band der Liebe zwischen zwei jungen Menschen aus den beiden unterschiedlichen Lagern - Romeo und Julia im tropischen Regenwald...
    Die Handlung dieses Films beruht auf einer Sage, die im Stamm der Dayaks von Generation zu Generation überliefert wird. Baron Victor von Plessen, der bereits einen erfolgreichen Film über Bali gedreht hatte, erzählt sie in schwarz-weiß-Bildern. Dazu musste der Regisseur dramaturgisch in die Geschichte eingreifen. Trotzdem ist ein einzigartiges ethnographisches Zeitdokument der Kenyah-Dayak-Kultur entstanden. Denn die Spielhandlung ist vollständig in die Originalorte eines Dorfes und seiner Umgebung eingebettet und bezieht ihre wesentliche Dynamik aus der Integration der authentischen, uns oft bizarr anmutenden Mythen und Rituale.
    EN. Kopfjäger von Borneo (Head Hunters of Borneo) is an ethnographic featurefilm shot in the 1930s in Indonesia. The story is based on an old local legend, enacted by natives, a concept somwhat similar to Murnau’s “Tabu”
    Director: Baron Victor von Plessen.

  • La blonde aux seins nus / The Blonde with Bare Breasts. 2010.
    The Blonde with Bare Breasts (French: La blonde aux seins nus) is a 2010 French film written and directed by Manuel Pradal.
    Julien (Nicolas Duvauchelle), 25 years old, and Louis (Steve le Roi), 12 years old, are brothers. Their father had often beaten Julien, who defended Louis from also being beaten. He is terminally ill now. Although the brothers do not care much for it, they try to obtain ownership of his river transport ship.
    A gang offers money for stealing the Édouard Manet painting La blonde aux seins nus (The Blonde with Bare Breasts) from the museum. The brothers agree to steal the painting. Louis steals the painting, while the young guard Rosalie (Vahina Giocante) is distracted. Rosalie comes after him, but Louis manages to lock her up. She is later freed to move around on the ship. Although she is sometimes treated rudely, she likes the adventure. The police suspect her of being involved in the theft. She helps by hiding the painting and herself, when the ship is searched.
    Julien and Rosalie have sex. Louis is jealous and pretends to have hanged himself by hanging up a life-size doll dressed in his clothes. Julien plans to kill Rosalie, because she knows they stole the painting. Louis tries to protect her by advising her to escape. She returns the painting to her father, who arranges its restoration. In an act of revenge, the gang that wanted to buy it beats up Julien. Rosalie reunites with the brothers on the ship. Following the death of the brother's father, Louis gets the ship. He apparently is their father's only real son.
    Director: Manuel Pradal.
    Cast: Vahina Giocante, Nicolas Duvauchelle, Steve Le Roi, Paul Schmidt, Brendan Backmann, Christian Bouillette, Mireille Franchino, Jo Prestia, Caroline Raynaud, Sacha Bourdo, Tomasz Kowalski.

  • Vil du se min smukke navle? / Wanna See My Beautiful Navel? 1978.
     DK. Vil du se min smukke navle? er en dansk spillefilm fra 1978, instrueret af Søren Kragh-Jacobsen. Birger Larsen og Lise-Lotte Rao spiller hovedrollerne som de unge mennesker, mens de voksnes hovedroller er besat af Henning Palner og Gertrud Mollerup. Oprindelig skrevet af den danske forfatter Hans Hansen.
    I sin famlen efter løsningen på pubertetens svære kærlighedskvaler bliver 16-årige Claus og klassekammeraten Lene hvirvlet ud på følelsernes dybe hav under et lejrskoleophold i Sverige. En skøn film om lykke, sorg, kærlighed og jalousi. Problemer enhver generation skal igennem. Problemer der aldrig går "af mode" - heldigvis.
    Søren Kragh-Jacobsen debuterede som instruktør med denne filmatisering af Hans Hansens bog for unge. Man bemærkede straks hans evne for at tale teenagernes sprog og for at få de unge skuespillere til at agere naturligt. Filmen fik i det hele taget fine anmeldelser og et stort publikum i den aldersgruppe, den henvendte sig til.
    EN. Amidst a bunch of kids from a 9th grade class from Denmark which goes on a school trip to Sweden having a lot of experiences , the story surrounds Claus and Lene, which meet the first real feelings of love.
    This film being the debut of Søren Kragh-Jacobsen all centered around a class of pupils on a tour to Sweden. The theme was close to hand, for after his education on the Prague film school he spent a number of years in the children and youth department of the national Danish broadcasting system. He also issued a record with songs capturing the mood among young people of the day. In retrospect, it is evident that the director accomplished his best achievements when focusing on children and youngsters mirroring society. The film came to be the definition of authentic looking youth films and had of course the universal theme of boys and girls with growing sexual awareness meeting for the first time. The execution of the film made with enlightening vigor and humor meant the debut for young actor Birger Larsen, who twelve years later chose to continue his career as a director with another children's film, 'Lad isbjørnene danse'.
    Director: Søren Kragh-Jacobsen.
    Cast: Helle Borup, Jesper Christensen, Benny Dahl, Lise Lotte Henriksen, Walther Jensen, Hannah Johansen, Birger Larsen, Gertrud Mollerup, Henning Palner, Carsten Thomsen.

  • Uloupené dětství / Stolen childhood. 1987.
     Prakticky celý svět zná osudy židovských dětí z terezínského ghetta, tragédii dětí z Lidic, ale málokdo ví o tragickém údělu několika tisíc dětí ze smíšených česko-německých manželství v okupovaném pohraničí. Skutečný příběh malého chlapce, který popsal ve své knize Děti za mřížemi spisovatel Joža Mikula, zaujal i filmaře. Pod výstižným názvem "Uloupené dětství" zachycuje život Mirka v německém Kinderheimu, kam se dostal po smrti své české matky. Rozhodnutím soudu je na žádost otce chlapec odebrán z péče babičky a jeho výchova svěřena německým úřadům. Výchovou se rozumí poněmčování. Metody, které zde byly používány, ani vzdáleně nepřipomínaly svůj vznešený název. Nelidské zacházení a psychické i fyzické strádání poznamenalo i Mirka.

  • Rosso come il cielo / Red Like the Sky. 2006.
    IT. Rosso come il cielo è un film del 2005, diretto dal regista Cristiano Bortone.
    Presentato come Evento speciale UNICEF nella sezione per ragazzi "Alice nella città" della Festa del Cinema di Roma 2006, è uscito nelle sale italiane il 9 marzo 2007.
    Nel cast ci sono gli attori Paolo Sassanelli e Marco Cocci e gruppo di ragazzini di dieci anni di cui alcuni realmente ciechi.
    1971. Mirco, un bambino toscano di dieci anni in seguito ad un incidente col fucile del padre perde la vista. I genitori sono costretti a fargli frequentare un istituto per non vedenti a Genova. Lì, non riuscendo ad usare il braille, trova un vecchio registratore e riesce a inventare delle favole fatte solo di rumori e narrazione. Nel frattempo conosce Francesca, la figlia della portinaia della casa accanto alla loro, nonostante non potessero incontrarsi. Mirco coinvolgerà sempre di più tutti gli altri bambini ciechi facendo capire a loro quanto valgono e quanto siano simili a tutti gli altri ragazzini. Alla fine il maestro, organizza una recita creata dai ragazzini, e tutti i genitori ne rimangono colpiti.I genitori di Mirco alla fine decidono di riportarlo a casa per le vacanze estive.
    In apertura si dice che il film è tratto da una storia vera, e prima dei titoli di coda si legge: "Mirco è uscito dal collegio a 16 anni. Nonostante non abbia più recuperato la vista, oggi è uno dei più riconosciuti montatori del suono del cinema italiano". Il riferimento è a Mirco Mencacci.
    EN. Red Like the Sky (Italian: Rosso come il cielo) is a 2005 Italian coming-of-age drama film written and directed by Cristiano Bortone and starring Luca Capriotti and Paolo Sassanelli. It is based on the childhood experiences of sound editor Mirco Mencacci.
    The film won the Audience Awards at the São Paulo International Film Festival and at the Sydney Film Festival. It also won the David di Donatello of the Youth.
    The film is inspired by the true story of Mirco Mencacci, one of the most gifted Italian sound editors working today, who happens to be blind. A small village in Tuscany, 1971. Mirco is a bright, lively 10-year-old, crazy about the movies - especially Westerns and adventure films. His father, an incurable idealist, is a truck driver. One day, while Mirco is playing with an old rifle, the gun accidentally goes off; the boy is shot in the head. He survives, but loses his sight. At that time, Italian law considered blind people hopelessly handicapped, and did not permit them to attend public school. Hence, young Mirco's parents are forced to shut their son up in a "special school for the blind": the David Chiossone Institute in Genoa. In the beginning Mirco does not accept his new condition...
    Director: Cristiano Bortone.
    Cast: Francesco Campobasso, Luca Capriotti, Marco Cocci, Simone Colombari , Alessandro Fiori, Rosanna Gentili, Simone Gullì, Patrizia La Fonte, Francesca Maturanza, Paolo Sassanelli.

  • 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.
    Cast: Janek Lesniak, Søren Hindborg, Lars Frøhling, Susanne Storm, Charlotte Mortensen, Pierre Lindstedt, Bent Warburg, Ove Sprogøe, Ingolf David, Birgitte von Halling-Koch, Jeanette Hultberg, Ove Verner Hansen.

  • 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.
    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.

    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.
     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.
    Director: Gerhard Bott.
    Cast: Gerhard Bott, Kristin Kiefer, Monika Seifert, Doris von Freyberg, Barbara Wolff, Reinhart Wolff.

  • 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.
    Directors: Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie.
    Cast: Ronald Bronstein, Alex Greenblatt, Sage Ranaldo, Frey Ranaldo, Victor Puccio, Lance 'Batman' Chamberlain, Baker Suitson, Peter Cramer, Eleonore Hendricks, Sean Price Williams, Dakota O'Hara.
    USA, France, 2009.
