The opening film of this year’s Face to Face with German Talent: The German Film Weekend is a moving drama exploring the complex lives of two sisters. Director Felix Hassenfratz's first feature is a very impressive debut. Maria (Maria Dragus) lives with her younger sister Hannah (Anna Bachmann) and their father (Clemens Schick) in remote Baden-Württemberg. Since the death of her mother, Maria has become the responsible sister while Hannah has rebelled and challenged her father's authority. While Maria enjoys playing the organ at church, both young women are bored and keen to escape, but something is keeping Maria from leaving home. When Hannah discovers a shocking secret, the film takes a more serious turn and explores an urgent issue with sensitivity and strong performances.
Lost Ones is a stirring drama that focuses on character, sexuality and sibling rivalry. Fans of thoughtful arthouse dramas will be well served by its powerful themes and psychological complexity.
The film will be followed by a Q&A with actress Maria Dragus and hosted by Anna Smith, film critic and host of the Girls On Film podcast.
Heavenly Films presents…
The Agony And The Ecstasy Of Phil Spector
plus Q&A with director Vikram Jayanti
An Arena classic, winner of the Royal Television Society award for the Best Arts Film of 2008, The Agony and the Ecstasy of Phil Spector presents a portrait of the troubled, and deeply troubling, genius of the Wall of Sound. Filmed just before and during his trial for the killing of Lana Clarkson, Spector, notoriously resistant to speaking on camera, talks rivetingly of his life his work, his views on the world, the music business and civil rights and his fears for the impending court case.
Featuring classic performances from Ike and Tina Turner, The Ronettes, The Righteous Brothers, The Crystals and John Lennon, it is a film that makes us wonder about the darkness behind some of pop's brightest hits. A unique and defining portrait of one of the greatest producers in the history of popular music but a man who is also currently serving an 19-year prison sentence for Clarkson's murder.
Produced by Anthony Wall and Vikram Jayanti
