The Mossad – Imperfect Spies
Brazil - The Rise and Fall of Lula da Silva
A feature documentary by César Charlone and Daniel Augusto
Lula da Silva, the star of the Brazilian political group and a favorite amongst every social strata, was sentenced to twelve years imprisonment as a result of the Petrobas corruption scandal. Just in time for the October 2018 election, for which he is the favorite running for the worker's party (PT). In the coming months, he will find out whether his appeal to higher courts has been successful and he can return to his post as leader of Brazil, or whether he will be imprisoned for an unknown length of time. The documentary film follows Lula da Silva in the months leading up to the decision „President or Prison“ and deconstructs piece by piece, moment by moment, the corrupt history of this crisis-stricken country. We hear the opinions of numerous politicians who have never publicly expressed their views on this systemic corruption. Former presidents and economic experts will unravel its weaknesses, putting forward their own suggestions and scenarios about the future of Brazil.

The Zarah Leander Files
A Film by Torsten Striegnitz and Simone Dobmeier
Zarah Leander was the Third Reich’s greatest film star. Admired by the Nazis she became the best-paid film diva ever signed by the UFA. Until today Zarah Leander is intrinsically tied to our collective memory. At the peak of her career in early 1943, Zarah Leander suddenly leaves her mansion in Berlin and returns to her home country Sweden. Around the same time, rumours are starting to spread which will ultimately determine the myth of Zarah Leander: a Nazi diva, a non-political actress or a soviet spy. THE ZARAH LEANDER FILES immerses into the life of the Swedish film diva and asks who is is really behind the mysterious look, the frivolous songs and pompous gestures? Who was Zarah Leander really?
