Of fathers and sons
Documentary film directed by Talal Derki about radical jihadism and terrorist training in Syria.
Under the guise of a photojournalist sympathetic towards Salafi jihadism, Talal Derki is allowed to enter a village controlled by the al-Nusra Front close to the front line of the Syrian Civil War, and stays with the Osama family. The family patriarch Abu Osama is a enthusiastic fanatic, openly praising the September 11 attacks and naming his children after the leaders of al-Qaeda and the Taliban. He works as a sniper and as a mine remover, and removes his children from school due to coeducation. The children, in particular the eldest son Osama, become increasingly prone to fighting and bullying.
Die Orangen – Saft 2
Camera – Emotional Detox
Started as the so called “Krautrock Guerrilla” in 2012, six years later the Berlin combo Camera are releasing their fourth full-length album. Customarily associated with the likes of NEU! and La Düsseldorf it is time to allow Camera to break free of the krautrock tradition and accept that they are very much doing their own thing now. Motto: “It’s not repetition, it’s discipline”

Krach|kisten|Orchestra / [kaˈkaːo]
19 square boxes, reminding of guitar-amps in Piet Mondrian Style, two legs below each one, arms on each side and a head sticking out above the box.
The Krachkisten Orchestra consists of 19 homemade analog-instruments and roughly 22 musicians. Founded in 2009 the ensemble is constantly growing and searching for non-musicians or dilatants and monophonic sounds.
The instruments were inspired by Luigi Russolo and his invention of Intonarumori over a 100 years ago. Like their counterparts, each box got it’s own specific sound which can be modified via knobs and buttons. The sound of the produced music switches between noise, polka, electro stuff and hip hop and is always a result of improvisation. Musicality is not a condition for acceptance, you just need two working index fingers and a jogging suit.
