1st Film Network Community Screening

April 6, 2022
at 7:00 pm

To welcome spring after the second long corona winter, we’re inviting you to the 1st Community Screening of the Film Network on April 6th, 7pm at Wolf Kino!

The stage is yours! Film Network members from different fields of work will introduce themselves with a short film. After each film, there will be a brief Q&A with the audience and afterwards everyone is invited to further discuss and get to know each other in the cozy café bar.

The program of the 1st Community Screening:

Amina Maher (Director + Writer) – “A Letter to My Mother” (2020, 19’)

Amina Maher (b. Tehran, 1992) is a queer filmmaker whose works deal with themes of social taboos and gender identity in relation to violence and power structures. A Letter to My Mother (Yek nameh be madaram) is a radical, merciless cinematic form of processing sexualised violence and analysing trauma, shame and all the feelings that remain.


Miriam Kolesnyk (D.o.P) – “Objectif Lune” (2017, 29′, Director: Jimmy Graissant)

Miriam Kolesnyk  works as a Director of Photography for fiction, commercials, documentaries and music videos since 2011. She is part of the network CINEMATOGRAPHINNEN and participated in Berlinale Talents in 2013. Objectif Lune tells the story of André, a 10 year old boy who is taken away from his family at the Reunion Island by the french youth welfare service in 1969. He ends up living with and old farmer in the french countryside, still hoping that his mother will come to bring him back.


Tavo Ruiz (Director + Writer) – “Portraits of My Mother” (2019, 11′)

Tavo Ruiz is a queer writer and director born in Nezahualcoyotl, Mexico. He participated in the Film Network mentoring program in 2021 with his debut feature film project “Acapulco Magic”. In the short documentary Portraits of My Mother (Retratos de mi madre), his mother confesses to him what she remembers about the experience of being raped as a child. By painfully recalling this traumatic event, she reflects on the sexual abuse of children and the scars it leaves on a person’s life.


Agnes Regan and Theresa Albert (Production) – “Agape” (2019, 10′) & “The Woodcutter” (2019, 2′)

Agnes Regan and Theresa Albert have produced ten short films in just two years with their production company HOMMAGE PITCTURES – from drama to thriller, from silent film to music video – and they will present two of them. The Woodcutter: Fairy tales are a bloody business, scaring children of all ages. But once you listen to the woodcutter’s story, you’ll wish you were small again. Agape: Ernie’s best buddy has conked out, leaving her dazed and confused. She needs to get away, especially from that shithole Berlin. Wont’t work without a lot of cash, though. That rich old lady Christa from the park could give her some. If she plays along. And Christa does join in, having waited for someone like Ernie for a long time. Because what she wants is even more radical.


We show the films in original language with English subtitles. The event will be held in English spoken language. The entrance is free and not only for Film Network members. However, since seating is limited, members have priority.

If you would like to come to our community screening, send an email to info@filmnetzwerk-berlin.de to sign up. To make sure everyone feels safe, the screening will be held in compliance with Wolf Kino’s current COVID-19 guidelines.

We are looking forward to seeing you again!
