    “Nelson Mandela: the myth and me” nominated for prestigious German Grimme Award

    Our South African co-production”Nelson Mandela: the myth and me” is officially nominated for the prestigious German Grimme Prize 2015 in the category “Information and Culture/Special”. Khalo Matabane asks global thinkers, Apartheid-victims and Mandela’s entourage to classify Nelson Mandela’s achievements, thereby providing a multi-facetted approach to his myth. His recent death at the high age of 95 offers the opportunity to reflect upon his legacy beyond sainthood. Amongst others, Matabane interviews the Dalai Lama, Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell, Peter Hain, Albie Sachs and Ariel Dorfman. Critique may just as well be pronounced as approval and veneration. How do they interpret his message of freedom, forgiveness and reconciliation in the world of today? The award ceremony will take place March 27th. We keep our fingers crossed!

    We are glad to announce that our co-production “The Yes Men Are Revolting” will have its European premiere at Berlinale 2015 in the Panorama section.

    After The Yes Men (Audience Award, IDFA 2014) and The Yes Men Fix The World (Panorama-Award, Berlinale 2009), the Yes Men are now well into their 40s, and their mid-life crises are threatening to drive them out of activism forever – even as they prepare to take on the biggest challenge they’ve ever faced, climate change. More than the first two installments, The Yes Men Are Revolting is as much a character study as it is an entertaining depiction of their latest interventions. Revealing the real people behind the ruses, at its heart lies a hopeful message about fighting for change.  The 65th Berlinale will take place from 05th to 15th of February 2015.
