After the Coen Brothers' folky opener, the journey through the world of wandering stars is continued. Today, someone is losing a cat, tomorrow, people are losing themselves. All of them in search of their inner road. Some find it in protest and refuse to swan off speechless. Many raise walls otherwhere and forfeit beeing found in someone else's streets. That's ordinary, unseen nevertheless.

In her new film THOSE WHO GO THOSE WHO STAY Ruth Beckermann portrays neither randomly nor strictly but subtle diversifying the shapes of migration. The subsidiary receives attention in a way, that all those faces' lineaments, scattered to the four winds, come outside the silver screen as a huge thread. With that sort of insistence, with which a child pulls sleeves, to show something yet unseen, to make something yet unseen visible at second sight, this thread nestles againt the viewer's fingertips to make the maze passable saying: C'mon, I want to show you something! And soon one doesn't stay any more... (bk)

Even wintery Teheran is not the place to leave a failed crime at snows of yesterday. DAST-NEVESHTEHAA NEMISOOZAND (MANUSCRIPTS DON'T BURN) offends Iranian censorship. Where those who think outside the box sit on the extreme edge of the chair and where an author is forbidden to write about, that feature film shouts in the face of reality: You can't order us to be quiet! The energy of that piece is no surprise, because an employment ban was inflicted on Mohammad Rasoulof himself in 2009 for reasons of free expression. (bk)
