Rams
Rams is a documentary portrait of Dieter Rams, one of the most influential designers alive, and a rumination on consumerism, sustainability, and the future of design.

“The man who all but invented consumer product design as we know it today.” – The Guardian

“To quantify his impact, you need only look at the millions of Apple products in our pockets.” —Fast Company

“Dieter Rams’ design ethos has shaped the way entire generations think about making and consuming.” —Wired

“Indifference towards people and the reality in which they live is actually the one and only cardinal sin in design.” – Dieter Rams

Border (STA)
Ali Abbasi’s Border follows the story of a border agent who uses her ability to sense or smell human emotions to catch smugglers — but when one man confounds her detection, she’s forced to confront a new reality.

A recent favourite at Cannes, Ali Abbasi’s Border is a stunning, near–note perfect mystery that seamlessly fuses fantasy, social commentary, and psychological insight. The heroine, Tina (Eva Melander), was born with a facial “disfiguration,” a strange scar on her tailbone, and the ability to sense or smell how people feel. She’s especially adept at detecting fear or unease.

Transit (STA)
German troops are fast approaching Paris. Georg, a German refugee, escapes to Marseille in the nick of time. In his luggage, he carries the documents of an author, Weidel, who has taken his own life in fear of his persecutors. Those documents include a manuscript, letters and visa assurance from the Mexican embassy.

In Marseille, only those who can prove they will leave, may remain. Visas for possible host countries, transit visas, and those scarce tickets for passage by ship are much needed. Georg has memorized Weidel's papers and assumes his identity. He delves into the quasi-existence of flight: refugee chatter in the corridors of a small hotel, the consulates, cafés and bars that line the harbor... He befriends Driss, the son of his comrade Heinz, who died on the run. Why move on at all? Are new beginnings possible elsewhere anyway?

Everything changes when Georg falls in love with the mysterious Marie. Is it devotion or calculation that has led her to share her life with a doctor, Richard, before journeying on in search of her husband? He's said to have surfaced in Marseille in possession of a Mexican visa for him and his wife.

TRANSIT an interview with Christian Petzold - "It’s a war story. A doomed love story. A ghost story. A parable. It’s dark, thrilling and strangely funny, in an absurdist, Kafka-esque way." - Globe Arts

Cinéspectacle: Simon Boccanegra (Opéra Bastille)
Melodrama in one prologue and three acts

CAST
Ludovic Tézier (Simon Boccanegra)
Mika Kares (Jacopo Fiesco)
Maria Agresta / Anita Hartig ((Maria Boccanegra (Amelia Grimaldi))
Francesco Demuro (Gabriele Adorno)
Nicola Alaimo (Paolo Albani)

With the turmoil in the news, operas with political connotations are all the rage and, naturally, those by Verdi take center stage. As Boccanegra, illustrious French baritone Ludovic Tézier conveys the composer’s thoughts on the relationship between the people and power.

The ambiguities of Verdi’s theatre are particularly clear in his baritone roles, among which is that of Boccanegra, corsair turned doge of Genoa and the troubled observer of the conflicts that tore apart 14 th -century landowners and peasants. An eminently political opera in which power struggles are interwoven with family conflicts, Simon Boccanegra echoes the life of its composer – the man who championed the cause of Italian unification and overcame the loss of his wife and children. Calixto Bieito, that most-Shakespearean of opera directors, brings humanism and truth to a work haunted by gleaming images of the sea.
