10 Billion - What will we eat tomorrow? (Germany, 2015) By 2050, there will be ten billion people in the world. In the middle of the heated debate about food security, comes this broad and analytical look into the enormous spectrum of global food production and distribution - from artificial meat, insects and industrial farming to trendy self-cultivation. Director, best-selling author and Food Fighter, Valentin Thurn, (box office hit Taste The Waste), seeks solutions worldwide and gives reason to believe in innovation and new visions for our future.
Profilers - Gaze into the Abyss (Austria/Germany, 2014). Their job is to investigate the dark minds of serial killers, terrorists and rapists. While fictional stories of criminal profilers fascinate mass audiences, their professional reality often is an enormous psychological burden.
The film offers portraits of top profilers from the USA, Finland, South Africa and Germany in the course of their daily routine, facing the challenge of living a "normal" life.
How can you enjoy life when you deal with the worst excesses of human beings day after day?
The Key to Dalí (Spain, 2016). "The Key to Dalí" presents the exceptional story of Spanish scientist Tomeo L`Amo, who bought an unknown painting in 1989, which he strongly believes is an original DALÍ. A 25 year long journey begins, during which he investigates, invests enormous amounts and follows experts around the world until he finally meets, in Paris, the expert that changes his life.
Bugs (Netherlands, 2016). Insects as food is a hot topic. Particularly over the last few years, since the UN recommended edible insects as a resource to combat world hunger. They have been commended for their taste by cooks and gastronomes, for their low ecological impact by environmentalists and for their nutritional content by public health scientists. Insects appear to be the new superfood that will solve all our global food security problems.
A Symphony of Summits - The Alps From Above (Germany, 2013). The Cineflex-camera, developed by the US secret services, brings razor sharp, aerial close-ups and breath-taking panoramic images to life. Filmed exclusively with aerial shots, this is a unique cinematic expedition from the peaks of Mont Blanc to the Dolomites and singular features of the history and geography of the Alps.
