German version

From DEFA Film Library:

This story of the miller Florian, who gave all his money to the war against Napoleon, is loosely based on a true story. After the war, Florian's reimbursement is challenged, and he must also pay taxes on his destroyed mill. He resists the tax collectors and takes off to Vienna, where he intends to defend his rights. On the way, he rescues the Duchess of Guastalla from assault. She also wants to go to Vienna, as His Majesty Franz II is trying to contest an heir in her favor. With cunning, luck, and dagger, Florian fights his way through a slew of nobility and their secret police. In the end, he acquires multiple titles, and the Duchess acquires him.

40th anniversary screening

allmovie.com: Ken Annakin's large-canvas comedy "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines" is set in 1910. In order to boost circulation of his newspaper, Lord Rawnsley (Robert Morley) offers 10,000 pounds to the first person who can fly across the English Channel. A huge number of hopefuls enter the contest, including the scheming Sir Percy Ware-Armitage (Terry-Thomas), who, with the help of his henchman Courtney (Eric Sykes), attempts to sabotage the other entries. There is also a love triangle featuring Orvil Newton (Stuart Whitman) and Richard Mays (James Fox) competing for the heart of Patricia Rawnsley (Sarah Miles).

What is Todd-AO?

"TODD-AO 70mm film, plus the TODD-AO special camera, plus the TODD-AO newly developed 6 channel high fidelity magnetic sound, plus the TODD-AO "all purpose" 70mm projector and the great arched TODD-AO screen equal the most revolutionary of all screen inventions, with clarity of perspective, detail and color reproduction never before achieved. As a result, with TODD-AO, audience participation now has its fullest and truest expression. Todd-AO is the dream of Michael Todd, plus the technical skills of the American Optical Company whose research staff headed by Dr. Brian O'Brien, jointly succeeded in developing "a motion picture system that would photograph action in a very wide angle....with one camera....on one strip of film....to be projected from a single projector....on a very wide screen....with a quality so perfect that the audience would be part of the action, not just passive spectators.

DEFA 70 movies

By Ingolf Vonau, Berlin, Germany

Certainly the most important and artistic significant 70mm Feature Film Production of DEFA

Don Francisco de Goya Lucientes (1746 - 1828) is an artist to the court of Karl IV of Spain. He is well known and well-to-do, but feels himself becoming more and more remote from the daily life and suffering of the Spanish people. After meeting the singer Maria Rosario in a Madrid tavern, where she is singing revolutionary songs, he becomes even more reflective. Rosario is hauled before the Inquisition. Goya is invited to attend as a warning not to stray from the official path. But it doesn't stop him from increasingly leaving the castle to portray the desires and nightmares of simple people in his paintings. Soon the Inquisition is on his trail…

Based on Lion Feuchtwanger's novel "This is the hour – Goya", and starring the Lithuanian actor Donatas Banionis as main character, the director Konrad Wolf creates an unconventional adaptation with images of lasting impressions. Declared aim of that big DEFA co production with the Russian LENFILM was to portrait the character of the artist Goya and to show his painful process of enlightenment in realizing the true Spanish society. How closely can an artist align himself with the powers that be if he wants to be honest and creative?

A destiny of an artist as allegory to present. The film was supposed to be different to the western style of biographical illustrative screen adaptations in using the cinematographic tools. Director of Photography Werner Bergmann and his Russian Colleague Konstantin Ryshow were trying to bring to appear their special view on how to use wide-screen photography in filmmaking. According to their principle that only the task not the possibility demands the format. A point of view sometimes contrary to the western view of cinematography. At premier night the 2 part film had a length of 161 min. Some months later the director himself changed the montage and shortened the film to 134 min. It was his own decision to make the intention in portraying the painter Goya more understandable. This last version is the only available one.

"Baraka"

"Baraka" (1:36). Filmed in: 65mm 5 perforations, 24 frames per second. Principal photography in: Todd-AO 70mm. Presented: on the curved screen in Todd-AO with 6-track magnetic stereo. Aspect ratio: 2,21:1. Country of origin: USA. Production year: 1992. World Premiere: 30.08.1992, Montreal World Film Festival. Montreal, Canada. Czeck premiere: 15.4.1994. Kino Mir 70 premiere: 6.6.1995

Directed by Ron Fricke. Written by: Constantine Nicholas & Genevieve Nicholas. Produced by Mark Magidson & Alton Walpole. Music by Michael Stearns. Cinematography by Ron Fricke. Edited by David Aubrey, Ron Fricke, Mark Magidson

Ron Fricke's next film "Samsara" - a work in progress

allmovie.com: Named after a Sufi word that translates roughly as "breath of life" or "blessing," "Baraka" is Ron Fricke's impressive follow-up to Godfrey Reggio's non-verbal documentary film "Koyaanisqatsi". Fricke was cinematographer and collaborator on Reggio's film, and for "Baraka" he struck out on his own to polish and expand the photographic techniques used on "Koyaanisqatsi". The result is a tour-de-force in 70mm: a cinematic "guided meditation" (Fricke's own description) shot in 24 countries on six continents over a 14-month period that unites religious ritual, the phenomena of nature, and man's own destructive powers into a web of moving images. Fricke's camera ranges, in meditative slow motion or bewildering time-lapse, over the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, the Ryoan-Ji temple in Kyoto, Lake Natron in Tanzania, burning oil fields in Kuwait, the smoldering precipice of an active volcano, a busy subway terminal, tribal celebrations of the Masai in Kenya, chanting monks in the Dip Tse Chok Ling monastery...and on and on, through locales across the globe. To execute the film's time-lapse sequences, Fricke had a special camera built that combined time-lapse photography with perfectly controlled movements of the camera. In one evening sequence a desert sky turns black, and the stars roll by, as the camera moves slowly forward under the trees. The feeling is like that of viewing the universe through a powerful telescope: that we are indeed on a tiny orb hurtling through a star-filled void. The film is complemented by the hybrid world-music of Michael Stearns.

The setting is spring 1936; a working-class district in the north of Paris. This neighborhood probably had a name once but now everyone simply calls it the Faubourg. In early may, three residents of the Faubourg - Pigoil, Milou, and Jacky - still sulk over the closing of the Chansonia four months ago. Supported by the locals who live to the rhythm of monsieur Tsf’s radio, the three friends decide to take hold of their destiny by producing the “hit” musical the Chansonia has always needed. With the help of the town, and the arrival of a mysterious and beautiful young actress named Duce, Pigoil, Milou, and Jacky bring the magic of the stage back to the Chansonia.

10th Anniversary of Stanley Kubrick's passing

allmovie.com: A mind-bending sci-fi symphony, Stanley Kubrick's landmark 1968 epic pushed the limits of narrative and special effects toward a meditation on technology and humanity. Based on Arthur C. Clarke's story The Sentinel, Kubrick and Clarke's screenplay is structured in four movements. At the "Dawn of Man," a group of hominids encounters a mysterious black monolith alien to their surroundings. To the strains of Strauss's 1896 Also sprach Zarathustra, a hominid invents the first weapon, using a bone to kill prey. As the hominid tosses the bone in the air, Kubrick cuts to a 21st century spacecraft hovering over the Earth, skipping ahead millions of years in technological development. U.S. scientist Dr. Heywood Floyd (William Sylvester) travels to the moon to check out the discovery of a strange object on the moon's surface: a black monolith. As the sun's rays strike the stone, however, it emits a piercing, deafening sound that fills the investigators' headphones and stops them in their path.

Cutting ahead 18 months, impassive astronauts David Bowman (Keir Dullea) and Frank Poole (Gary Lockwood) head toward Jupiter on the spaceship Discovery, their only company three hibernating astronauts and the vocal, man-made HAL 9000 computer running the entire ship. When the all-too-human HAL malfunctions, however, he tries to murder the astronauts to cover his error, forcing Bowman to defend himself the only way he can. Free of HAL, and finally informed of the voyage's purpose by a recording from Floyd, Bowman journeys to "Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite," through the psychedelic slit-scan star-gate to an 18th century room, and the completion of the monolith's evolutionary mission.
 

Alien

“Alien” (1:57). Filmed in: 35mm, 24 frames per second. Principal photography in: Panavision. Presented: On the curved screen with 6-track Dolby Stereo, format 42. Aspect ratio: 2,21:1.

“Alien” 70mm openings

30th anniversary screening

allmovie.com: "In space, no one can hear you scream." A close encounter of the third kind becomes a Jaws-style nightmare when an alien invades a spacecraft in Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror classic. On the way home from a mission for the Company, the Nostromo's crew is woken up from hibernation by the ship's Mother computer to answer a distress signal from a nearby planet. Capt. Dallas' (Tom Skerritt) rescue team discovers a bizarre pod field, but things get even stranger when a face-hugging creature bursts out of a pod and attaches itself to Kane (John Hurt). Over the objections of Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), science officer Ash (Ian Holm) lets Kane back on the ship. The acid-blooded incubus detaches itself from an apparently recovered Kane, but an alien erupts from Kane's stomach and escapes. The alien starts stalking the humans, pitting Dallas and his crew (and cat) against a malevolent killing machine that also has a protector in the nefarious Company.
 

The Untouchables

“The Untouchables” (1:59). Filmed in: 35mm, 24 frames per second. Principal photography in: Panavision. Presented: On the curved screen with 6-track Dolby Stereo, format 43. Aspect ratio: 2,35;1. Country of origin: USA. Production year: 1987. World Premiere: 02.06.1987, USA. Czeck premiere: 6.3.1992. Czeck premiere: 1.7.1990. Kino Mir 70 premiere: 9.10.1990

allmovie.com: Like the TV series that shared the same title, "The Untouchables" was an account of the battle between gangster Al Capone and lawman Eliot Ness, this time in the form of a feature film boasting big stars, a big budget, and a script from respected playwright David Mamet. Kevin Costner stars as Ness, a federal agent who has come to Chicago during the Prohibition Era, when corruption in the local police department is rampant. His mission is to put crime lord Capone (Robert De Niro) out of business, but Capone is so powerful and popular that Ness is not taken seriously by the law or the press. One night, discouraged, he meets a veteran patrolman, Jimmy Malone (Sean Connery), and discovers that the acerbic Irishman is the one honest man he's been seeking. Malone has soon helped Ness recruit a gunslinger rookie, George Stone (Andy Garcia), and, joined by nebbish accountant Oscar Wallace (Charles Martin Smith), the men doggedly pursue Capone and his illegal interests. At first a laughingstock, Ness soon has Capone outraged over his and Malone's sometimes law-bending tactics, and the vain mobster strikes back in vicious style. Ultimately, it is the most unexpected and minor of crimes, tax evasion, which proves Capone's undoing. All of the credits for The Untouchables boasted big names, including music from Ennio Morricone and costumes by Giorgio Armani. Director Brian De Palma continued his tradition of including a homage to past masters of the cinema with a taut stairway shoot-out reminiscent of a similar sequence in Sergei Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin (1925).

At the end of the season, the army leaves to fight another battle, Vogel is asked to depart from the hidden valley, and the valley and its population continues on and endures.

“Terminato 2 - Judgement Day” (2:17). Filmed in: 35mm, 24 frames per second. Principal photography in: Panavision Super 35. Presented: On the curved screen with 6-track Dolby Stereo, format 43.

allmovie.com: A sequel to the low-budget sci-fi action thriller that made him and star Arnold Schwarzenegger A-list Hollywood names, writer/director James Cameron upped the ante with this follow-up by employing a more sweeping storyline and cutting-edge special effects. Linda Hamilton returns as Sarah Connor, now a single mother to rebellious teen John Connor (Edward Furlong), during the late nineties. Having been informed by a time-traveling soldier in the first film that John will one day grow up to become humanity's savior from a computer-controlled Armageddon, Sarah has responded by becoming a muscle-bound she-warrior bent on educating John in survival tactics and battle strategies. Her ranting about humankind's future has landed Sarah in an insane asylum and John in the foster care system. The rebellious John has responded to his situation by getting into scrapes with the law. When a new and improved Terminator android called the T-1000 (Robert Patrick) arrives from the future to eliminate John, an older model T-800 (Schwarzenegger) is sent to protect the boy. The T-1000, however, has the ability to morph itself into any shape it desires, allowing it chameleon-like powers and near indestructibility. The T-800 saves John's life and helps break Sarah out of the institution. Staying only one step ahead of the dogged T-1000, Sarah leads her son and the T-800 to the headquarters of Cyberdyne Systems, the company that will invent a robotic intelligence that will eventually take over the world. There, they attempt to convince inventor Miles Dyson (Joe Morton) to help them stop the future from ever occurring by destroying his work. Dyson sacrifices himself in an explosion to save the world, leading to a final showdown between the two Terminators at a steel foundry.
