Winner of the Cinema for Peace’s Most Valuable Documentary for 2018!

The Heart of Nuba is a the story about an American doctor Tom Catena as he selflessly serves the needs of a forgotten people in the war-torn Nuba Mountains of Sudan. The feature length documentary has literally inspired a movement to save lives. It also has raised nearly $600,000 in donations, 100% of which have gone to medical supplies, staff training and other critical needs of the Mother of Mercy Hospital located in the south of Sudan. The popularity of the film has put pressure on Sudan’s President, convicted war criminal Omar Hassan al-Bashir, to cease the relentless bombing of innocent men, women and children in the Nuba region. After viewing The Heart of Nuba, the Genocidaire declared, “The Heart of Nuba is the primary reason for the ceasefire in the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile State.” This miraculous ceasefire has lasted over two years. With the recent ouster of al-Bashir we are cautiously optimistic about the future of the Sudanese people and their determination to create a more democratic form of government.

The Rest - Ai Weiwei | Cinema for Peace Screening

Cinema for Peace cordially invites everyone to the premiere of ´The Rest´ by director and artist Ai Weiwei.

This film will be the first of 9 screenings of the artist´s film-series and aims to compliment the opening of Ai Weiwei´s new exhibition at Kunstsammlung, in Düsseldorf

https://www.facebook.com/events/374553606602939/

About the Film:

„The Rest“ is a documentary by Ai Weiwei about refugees who arrived in Europe, the world’s bastion of human rights. These refugees fled war and persecution in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and other conflict-ridden countries. They sought refuge in France, Italy, Germany, Greece, Sweden, and Turkey, but most have not found the safe havens of their dreams. Instead, they now live in limbo within a disintegrating humanitarian aid system, no longer the center of media attention, yet unable to move forward with their lives. They are „The Rest“. In 2017 Ai Weiwei released „Human Flow“, his epic film about the global refugee crisis, spanning 23 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. Since then, the crisis has only worsened, and rising anti-immigrant sentiments have been stoked by populist European politicians. Those refugees awaiting sanctuary in Europe found their lives put on hold, victims of overburdened aid systems, media fatigue and intensifying nationalism. For these reasons, Ai Weiwei decided to create „The Rest“ from the 900 hours of unused footage from „Human Flow“ to call attention to the unresolved plight of refugees on European soil. „The Rest“ is a personal, deeply trenchant film focused on the everyday lives of refugees in Europe. Most of the film is told through interviews with refugees and footage of their living situations. They speak of the hardship and danger they faced fleeing war, poverty, and persecution, and of the treacherous routes they undertook to find safety in Europe. Now, however, they face a different type of suffering in Europe, stalled by overburdened aid infrastructures as well as escalating anti- immigrant sentiments. „The Rest“ is not only an accumulation of refugees‘ stories but also a mirror of the European political zeitgeist.

These refugees‘ experiences demonstrate how pan- European values of liberalism and democracy have largely failed in practice and betrayed those most in need of help.

Screening + meeting with the director Carl-A. Fechner

Director Carl Fechner focuses on one key factor: the energy transition. The film presents people from diverse backgrounds who show resistance against the adverse and devastating effects of climate change on our planet. Those climate warriors are strongly aware that we need a fast transition in order to save the environment and keep the human rights in balance in favour of peace. They raise their voices for resistance to lobbyists and inhuman social realities. Our American and German climate warriors do all passionately drive towards the same aim: saving our world, keeping peace and creating a livable future for everyone.
Climate Warriors / 2018, 1h 26 min
