 01_Kills on Wheels2

Zoli and Barba met in a rehabilitation clinic. Both tied to a wheelchair since their births, the two men are united by a deep bond of friendship. One day, Rupaszov, a former firefighter, who is paralysed from the waist down, is admitted to the clinic and disturbs the quiet life of the two. However, Zoli and Barba turn out to be quick-witted accomplices when Rupaszov, working as a hitman after a stay in prison, receives fresh and usually lethal mission orders. Not entirely amused by the two hinchmen on wheels, Rupaszov’s client soon turns out to be a force to be reckoned with, a force that the team would rather avoid.

Screening on the 26th of May at 8:30 pm

at Collegium Hungaricum Berlin (Dorotheenstraße 12, 10117 Berlin)

The film presents the lives of the citizens of Sarajevo, who showed civil courage under the toughest conditions during the 1425 days of the siege of their city and provided an impressive resistance to various threats, with the aim of preserving the traditional spirit of multicultural coexistence in the city.

 15_Home sweet home_2

Agron was considered dead by friends and family; indeed, there are eyewitnesses who saw him die on the battlefield during the conflict in Kosovo. So it comes as a big surprise when he suddenly turns up at the door of the house where his loved ones have finally learned to live without him. Although the welcome home is heartfelt, it is short, and emotions quickly give way to the consideration of practical problems. In terms of making a living, it would be better for the family if he remained a war victim, and so Agron is forced through the compassionate pressure of his family to suppress his existence to the point of invisibility. Home Sweet Home skillfully captures the atmosphere of postwar society without leaving, even for a moment, the cramped house where we bear witness to the drama of a man who has landed himself in an absurdly inescapable situation.


Lowdown (Original title: Ispod mosta, medju stijenama / Director: Pavle Simonovic, Montenegro)

Screening on the 27th of May at 1:30 pm

at Babylon Kino – Kleiner Saal (Rosa-Luxemburg-Str. 30, 10178 Berlin)


In the center of Podgorica, under the bridge on river Moraca, the corpse is found. Quickly we learned that it is well known member of a criminal organization. In a very difficult day for him, Salo, police detective, has to investigate the crime. Anger outbursts and problems with the media are his everyday routine, lately. As it is not already enough, in this particular day he has to deal with the microcredit company which charges him for not paying his due, his relationship with the girlfriend is falling apart and he is not able to be at the ballet training of her daughter from ruined marriage. Suddenly, one call changes the game and its rules. Everything changes. The old saying that states that during the investigation, detective finds himself gets the new, twisted meaning.
