New in Distribution: "5 Lessons and 9 Questions About Chinatown"

Shelly Silver's 5 LESSONS AND 9 QUESTIONS ABOUT CHINATOWN wins the Dialogue Award at the European Media Art Festival in Osnabrück. Following its premier at Berlinale Shorts we included Silver's new film in our distribution program. We congratulate her to this award!
From the jury's statement: "Imitating a language course, Shelly Silver takes us with her into New York's Chinatown. It remains unclear who is learning who's language. the story-within-a-story setup which juggles elegantly between spoken language, symbols and images, reflects in this the complexity of togetherness. The light-heartedness of the movie is created through an unpretentious connection between a critical way of looking at history and a loving view into daily life, without becoming superficial at all."
