Of course there’s a Newsletter be aware, it’s in German… 😉 Kurz&Gut Newsletter and no worries, it does come not on a regular basis and only from time to time!
Stadtbibliotheksvortragssaal. The word is so adorable long that its length alone should be a good reason to go and watch a movie there tonight. There, in the Stadtbibliotheksvortragssaal @Gasteig, Rosenheimerplatz, Munich.
Walaa! is screening there. Walaa! is a documentary film about an Israeli-Arab women-football player. She lives in the Palestinian territories occupied by Israel, she plays in Israel in the professional’s league, she used to be in the Israeli National Team and is now in the Palestinian National Team. She’s got an Israeli passport, is born and bred in Israel, never lived elsewhere but in Israel, has all her family there and will move there again after she finishes her studies in Jenin.
Checkpoints and borders dominate her life. But the real obstacles to overcome, are deep within the traditions of the Arab world.
Walaa! – Directed by: Noemi Schneider. Cinematography: Sanne Kurz.
@DOK.fest Munich one more time on
Munich central station, platform 11. Starbucks is luring at the corner, but help and advice for travelers and those in need can be found much rather next door. The train station mission Munich, the Bahnhofsmission München, has open doors 24/7.
I was lucky enough to do a wonderful project for the Bayerische Bahnhofsmissionen two years back with the Australian-German director Vanessa van Houten. – Now the Munich based artist Christiane Huber has been invited to do a photography project with the guests of the Bahnhofsmission München.
An open space, many excited guests of the mission, a truly wonderful support from the staff and the many different stories, that flooded together with the people straight in to our studio, made this project a great success for all people involved.
The exhibition can be seen on the National Day of the Train Station Missions, Saturday, 20th of April 2013, Munich Central Station, Platform 11.
