Currently, on average, just about four children come into this world every single second. This corresponds to the incredible number of over 130 million births annually worldwide. As natural and inevitable as it is that our existence depends on Birth, the whole complex process required for the emergence of each human life as it goes through its various stages of development is just that much more amazing.

Film score for documentary 'Future Works'

Most people have it and those who don’t, want it… work.

For many of us work is meaningful and fulfilling, on the other hand for others it is an un-loved and necessary evil. It claims the main part of a human’s lifetime. But at its heart work is constantly evolving and many of the concepts of working, which seem to be nor-mal and self-evident to us since the age of industrialization, are in fact comparatively young and might even lose their universality in the future. So how will we work in the future? Director Natasa von Kopp follows up on those and associated questions about the future of work for German TV station SWR.

Film score for motion picture 'Mes - Walking' and its trailer

Friendship is something wonderful. Under ideal conditions it also develops, when obvious differences, e.g. in age, look or style, don’t let it show that two people are connected deep inside despite outward appearance.

“Walking” (“Mes”), the Kurdish motion-picture from director Shiar Abdi, deals with such a friendship. The movie is set in the 1980’s, where Cengo (Abdullah Ado), a twelve year old boy and the odd, dumb and slightly mentally deranged Xelilo (Selamo) – a man living in an old garage and scuffing and striding up and down in front of the town hall day after day – slowly become friends. They spend more and more time with each other and with Cengo’s friends, as they unexpectedly are drawn into the tribulations of the Turkish take-over of power, which radically changes their lives and those of their families and friends.

Wheat has been cultivated by mankind for several thousand years and even today, it’s one of the most important staple foods there are. But where does all that wheat actually come from? How is it grown, harvested, processed and where and what is it used for? Director Dirk Neumann explores that question with his documentary “The wheat we eat“ for the German TV station SWR. His movie is a production for the educational television programme “Planet Schule”, which is a collaborative project of SWR and WDR. He vividly explains all the different processes wheat has to go through - from seed to mill and beyond.
