ARTE RE:

16 x 30' (GER, ENG subs)
Close, authentic, genuine and with focus on people and their stories.

RE: stands for RElevance, REsponsiveness, REality, REport, REsponsibility. In 30 minutes, Re: dives into the environment and brings Europe's diversity to life.

1. Integration & Goat Cheese - An Ethiopian in the Alps
This is a story of a courageous woman, who has asserted herself with a lot of skills and a clever agricultural concept. The Ethiopian had to leave her homeland eight years ago for political reasons. In the Trentino Alps, she began breeding goats and founded her own small cheese dairy: "La capra felice", the happy goat. Her farm has gained supra-regional recognition and the cheeses are awarded with prizes. Young people from all over the region come to learn how to make cheese. But she also senses the new climate for migrants in the country.

2. Beauty of Death - A Funeral Director & his Mission
Eric Wrede is an alternative undertaker and always stunned by the state in which the deceased arrive from hospitals. He has a mission to convince others to have more respect for the dead. Wrede arranges funeral servicees according to the wishes of his customers. He finds many rules outdated and fights against them. The need for new farewell rituals and a more open approach to death is widespread. The film accompanies people who fight for this goal in very different ways.

3. Childhood in Greenland
On the island of Uummaanaq, in western Greenland, parentless and abused Inuit children return to their roots. In the northernmost children's home in the world, Greenlandic traditions and values will help them build a new identity from the ruins of their lives. Many of them have experienced terrible things: violence, sexual abuse, neglect. Often their parents are alcoholics, overburdened with education or no longer alive. The children are to free themselves from their traumatic past and find their place in life.

4. Dropouts on La Gomera
The hippies of La Gomera come from all over Europe. What unites them is the desire for a simple existence in harmony with nature. In order to fulfill this dream, they have left their old lives behind. Just like Mischa, who had been diagnosed with a brain tumour and a burn out when she was 24. After the Viennese had defeated her illness, she changed her life completely. On La Gomera she found her personal paradise. But the place of longing is threatened. Does the hippie community still have a future?

5. Agricultural Industry in Spain
The Spanish region of Murcia is Europe's largest garden. Here is where the shelves of European supermarkets are filled, especially in the winter months. 70% of Spanish fruit and vegetable are growing here. But Spain's second largest economic sector has been caught in the crossfire of criticism. The reason: the waste water from the agricultural industry contaminates the saltwater lagoon Mar Menor with fertilizers and weed killers. The population and fishermen fear for their existence. Protests against this can no longer be silenced.

6. Silicone Dreams
Realistic love dolls of the new generation have recently experienced an enormous development and increasing popularity. Recently, Europe's first doll brothel opened in Barcelona, followed by establishments in Great Britain, Germany and France. Enthusiasts and collectors of silicone ladies praise this as the slow entry of this variety into Europe's cultural mainstream. But for many men the dolls are more than just sex toys, they live with them.

7. Whaling in the Faroe Islands
For centuries, pilot whaling has been part of the history of the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic. That is supposed to change. Animal rights activists criticise the hunting of marine mammals as both unnecessary and cruel and call on tourists to boycott the islands as a holiday destination. That increases the pressure, because beside the fishery tourism belongs to the most important mainstay of the island economy.

8. Slavery in Italy
Yvan Sagnet calls the thousands of harvesters from Africa and Eastern Europe in Italy's fields slaves. Without them, no tomato, no orange, no olive would be harvested. But they are exploited and often live in inhumane conditions and after a 14-hour day in the heat, they are left with only 4 euros. He organized a strike, the first of the harvesters. With success. Since then he fights for their rights, he has now founded NoCap, an organisation with which he wants to certify products manufactured under ethically correct conditions.

9. Equipped for the Apocalypse
In films we can regularly marvel at what happens when the world as we know it ends. Whether it's nuclear accidents, weather catastrophes or prolonged power cuts - what makes some people shiver comfortably is a bitterly most serious vision of the future for prepper. With great effort they arm themselves for the possible end of our civilization. And hardly anywhere in Europe is the scene as active as in Germany. Are the crisis prophets perhaps right and are we far too naive when it comes to the permanent availability of food, electricity and heat?

10. Padre Angel and his Open Church
Although most Spanish are still officially Catholics, more and more are now unaffiliated with any religion. In the middle of Madrid, Father Ángel Garcia Rodriguez leads one of the most extraordinary parishes in Spain: San Anton. The church is open 24 hours a day, soft armchairs replace hard pews. Homeless people like to use them to rest or sleep. Free wifi, breakfast and lunch for those in need, public viewing in the church when the Spanish national team plays. His goal: A church that moves towards the people.

11. Vacation Jail in Norway
In the most liberal prison in the world in Norway, murderers, sex offenders and white-collar criminals live on an idyllic island in the Oslo Fjord. Here the felons are prepared for their release. No bars or walls: the concept is trust, and in fact nothing has ever happened. But is that still punishment? The state of Norway does a lot to prepare criminals for life after punishment. In the Blues House Jens rehearses with his band. Jens is a convicted murderer. With his band Skyldig som faen (guilty as hell) he even performs outside the prison island.

12. Reporters Against the Mafia
A bomb explosion on the balcony of a house in the Roman district of Ostia. An elderly couple lives in the apartment. Their daughter, Federica Angeli, a journalist who has been reporting on organised crime in Rome for years, is the key witness in the trial against the Roman Mafia clan Spada. The Sicilian reporter Paolo Borrometi was brutally beaten up four years ago, later his house was set on fire. Both have to fear for their lives because they report about the Italian Mafia.

13. Searching for Prince Charming
Pretty, docile, man's property - many women in Romania no longer want this understanding of their role. They no longer tolerate the archaic gender roles in their homeland and seek their happiness of love in the supposedly civilized West. For an equal relationship, they are prepared to leave everything behind. The dream of a better life - a worthwhile business for partnership agencies.

14. Survival in Venice
Venice is shrinking. Every year about 1,000 Venetians leave their home town, driven away by mass tourism. This increasingly transforms Venice into an amusement park for day visitors. Many young Venetians do not want to accept this any longer and fight for a future in their hometown. Sebastian Fagarazzi is Venetian. The majority of his friends have already left Venice. Housing prices are exploding, jobs outside the tourism industry are in short supply. We accompany him through a city that is increasingly degenerating into a tourist backdrop.

15. Melting Arctic
Marion Maturilli trudges through the wet, melting snow on her way to her meteorological measuring instruments. In Ny Ålesund researchers are measuring the consequences of climate change more closely than in any other region of the world. The temperature on Spitsbergen has risen by 1.6 degrees in the last ten years - about 15 times faster than the global average. Rain in January, snow melting in May - these are the latest effects of global warming that surprise even scientists.

16. Fishing Against Flight
"Fighting the causes of flight" - hardly any other motto is heard as often as this one. Mouhamed Mbaye has found his own way. The Senegalese, who has been living in Berlin for a few years, imports sustainable fish from his home country - and thus creates jobs. "Those who can earn a living don't have to leave their country, says Mouhamed with satisfaction. "Stay where you are" is his call to the youth in Senegal - but it only works if there are prospects for the young people there. He wants to contribute to this.
