Striking Matches

24. July 17:00h until 19:00h at Kino 1

Where are our roots? And do we share this place with our parents? In two personal documentaries, the directors observe their own sense of longing for home together with that of their parents, discussing what of these they brought with them from childhood and building bridges from Germany to Brazil and Vietnam.

Saudade

‘Saudade’ describes the emotion between longing, loss and joy. When her father’s health worsens, Brazilian filmmaker Denize Galiao embarks on a beautifully painful journey between two continents – searching for her roots and the feeling of belonging.
