The postwar Berlin through the Berlin Film Festival has become the major film city, die_1951 for the first time took place, and along with Cannes and Venice, the most important film festival is the world.
In the 50s, those glory days of cinema, was a playground for the international of stars at Festival time.
The 40th Juiläum of film festival took place this year in a totally changed Berlin. By the fall of the Berlin wall, the films could be displayed for the first time in East Berlin. For the East Berlin a foretaste of an uncensored culture operation.
A uniform of the GDR border troops - an unusual souvenir from this unusual city.
The Brandenburg Gate, once the symbol of divided Berlin, is open again. And so many stars could present their films in the eastern part of the city to the public personally. Like Martin Landau, actor in the new film by Woody all. In "Crimes and misdemeanors", he helps the world famous comedian whose typical problems amicably: Woody all: "... cause then you see, then the story has tragic proportions because in the absence of a God or something he is forced to take over the responsibility himself." Then you have tragedy."
Martin Landau: "but that's ficition, that's movie I mean, you have seen too many movies. And I am talking about reality. "I mean, If you want to have a happy ending, you should go and see a Hollywood movie."
The reaction of the audience shows, so Landau to the notion that people in East Germany feel no different than anywhere else in the world.
Hub between East and West – this function is can meet even more than previously the Festival at new Berlin. Especially noticed by critics and film buyers: forbidden movies from the Eastern European countries that there encamped some twenty years in the vaults of the censorship authorities.
More than previously the Soviet Director Kira Murat Karim wants to deal critically in her films with Soviet everyday life.
Filmmakers from East and West, who stood in front of rolling cameras and answer - the Berlinale was fair in its anniversary year of the new political atmosphere. The decision of the international jury that confirmed once again: East German Director Heiner Carow won the silver bear for his film "coming out": Cachao: "I can at all do not say how much we love. "Thank you all Berliners, the audience, thank you very much the many Flash, thank you very much for the great experience - and for that we so close now back together in Berlin."
The Golden bear went to two films, including the American production of "Music Box": "my father is simply to innocent man who is unjustly accused. "He is a man, who has been punished by a communist government for action he committed against representatives of this government five years ago."
"What's the matter, Yvonne... the trial is over."
"It what you dad, you killed them all." I saw that photos. "It what you dad."
In it, the Hungarian emigrant Lazio in the United States has been indicted for war crimes. Convinced of his innocence, his daughter takes over the defense. Although Lazlo is acquitted in court, his daughter now knows that he is guilty.
A moving film - Prize-winner of the Jubilee Festival in the vital film city of Berlin.
02. Europe and new media media and mass communications - without satellite technology unthinkable today. By rapid technical progress overcomes the flow of opinions and information has long been all boundaries - even the boundaries that will fall if end of 1992 the European single market becomes a reality. So that the Europe of open borders is also a Europe of open communication, the Europeans will promote high technologies such as telecommunications since 1985 under the NamenEUREKA.
These techniques were presented in the online ' 90 in Hamburg. The experts were unanimous: the now newly developed European television standard must be introduced as soon as possible. As long as different television standards such as PAL and SECAM exist side by side, they act like invisible barriers between the countries.
HDTV, the television of the future. On enlarged Bildfiäche HDTV television reached a quality that match up to the cinema screen. More and more international programmes ensure the diversity on the new screens. In Germany already now up to 30 programs can be via cable and satellite television received, coming not only from European suppliers. Because openness is called in the whole Europe in the future also openness to the outside: so that the look is easier also to neighbouring States and Nations outside of Europe - and mutual understanding is growing.
03. meeting hand Modrow / Helmut Kohl in the German capital Bonn took place the second German summit after the revolutionary events in the GDR.
German Chancellor Helmut Kohl hosted the East German Prime Minister Hans Modrow. The talks were dominated by the rapid political and economic Veifalls in the GDR. Still, tens of thousands of GDR left their homeland, order to move in the Federal Republic of Germany - for both German States a great burden. An economic and Monetary Union should help decisively to curb this overcurrent settlers. The mark of the Federal Republic will be introduced as possible soon also in the GDR as a means of payment.
The international press, Hans Modrow took the opportunity to a dramatic appeal to the population of the GDR: "everyone may really stay in his ancestral homeland, all have a perspective, all have their chance."
The Bundeskanzier shut out emphatically national solo efforts on the road to unity of in Germany: "the unit of Germany's embedded require in the Pan-European architecture and the overall process of East-West relations. Because no one has a greater interest than we Germans themselves. It comes to a great joint work in our so far getellten homeland, it's about a peaceful future for a free and United Europe. It's about the German and European contribution to world peace."
04. Solar energy in the vineyards all energy on earth comes from the Sun. Heat, wind, waves, and also coal and oil have been created with the power of solar energy.
8 minutes the Sun needs to get up to Kobern-Gondorf.
Since Roman times, the vines, whose Trauben in sunlight tyres - raw material for the famous Moselle wine grow on the slopes of the Moselle river.
High of Kobern, closer to the Sun, something else is produced from sunlight: electricity. Europe's largest solar power station has created the Rheinisch Westfälische Elektrizitätswerk here. 300,000 silicon solar cells provide an output of 340 KW.
This technique is called photovoltaics. The incident sunlight strikes out electrons from the atoms of silicon crystals.
Electrons and the simultaneously arising 'holes' move opposed apart and can power on the metal contacts of solar cells are taken. Solar cells produce direct current, which is converted with inverters in alternating current and fed into the medium-voltage level.
Solar energy is free of charge and limitless - but the conversion into electricity is still pretty expensive - but our fossil fuels, coal and oil will be exhausted once and on the other hand increasing the CO2 content of the atmosphere in a way very questionable for the world's climate as a result of combustion processes.
The Federal Research Minister will therefore promote this year diePhotovoltaik with 100 million DM. In power generation, the ecological reasons are outweigh in the future the economic.
05. karate Championships the fight against a real or imaginary against one opponent - requires both highest concentration, both United karate.
The lovers of this unarmed art of self defense met in Hannover to the European Championships for juniors and women. A martial arts - after jahrtausendealtem Oriental self-image - a martial art.
Even if the Japanese champion and coach Hideo Ochi in this exhibition stretches his opponents to the ground - in the competition include no hits. The full power of the body is incorporated alone in the movements cancel before your opponent.
The women, Ruth Hahn could secure the European title from the Federal Republic. But to rejoice in the victory: for the karate fighters, the placement is not the decisive one, but, according to ancient Japanese wisdom, the mastery of one's self.
