Summary:
 
OSKAR FEVER is a movie about a movie. Oskar and his friend Benny meet in a bar to talk about a new script Oskar is currently writing but isn’t able to sell it to a production company. Benny wants to help and starts to add new scenes and topics to make the story more suitable for the bigger audience. In his opinion an international successful German film needs to have some Nazis in it and sex, animal babies, tears, violence, action and marginalized groups combined with the German-German history. Oskar on the other hand isn’t very fond of Bennys crazy ideas. But after a couple of drinks his point of view changes and the two of them continue their creative process.OSKAR FEVER is a short satire about the stereotypical cheesy dramas and blockbusters German TV and film suffers from. A black comedy about film making.

ALICE IN NO MAN´S LAND

CAST : Christian Ulmen, Nora Tschirner, Friedrich Mücke
WRITTEN & DIRECTED BY: Robin Polák
SCREENPLAY: Jiri Polak
DOP: Frank Lamm
EDIT: Katja Fischer
 
Summary:
 
Alice goes travelling in search of her boyfriend Nico, who last got in touch when he was at the German-Polish border.
But instead of finding him, Alice is mugged, and is now standing in the rain at her wit’s end. Totally soaked through, she is „rescued“ by a taxi driver. Bitterly disappointed, Alice abandons Nico and goes off with Frank. It’s the beginning of the end. Frank wants to celebrate his birthday together with Alice and thus catch up with all things love-related. Alice rejects him. Frank goes crazy, and Alice hides from him in the bathroom. Nico plays the avenger, nearly beats Frank to death, and flees with Alice, away from this no-man’s land.
Just a short distance from Berlin, one finds oneself at the end of the world. Here, at the ostensibly peaceful border, time is at a stand-still. Although the border between East and West has been shifted to the Polish-Ukrainian border, refugees still try to reach Germany via the Oder-Neisse line. All strangers are suspect here; taxi drivers are not allowed to take them as fares, and the Federal Border Guard and a vigilante group keep an eye on things. A tragic-comic trip to the eastern border. An Eastern.

ALICE IM NIEMANDSLAND
 
Inhalt:
 
Alice reist ihrem Freund Nico, der sich zuletzt von der deutsch-polnische Grenze gemeldet hat, nach. Doch statt ihn zu finden, wird Alice beraubt und steht nun ratlos im Regen. Völlig durchnässt wird sie von einem Taxifahrer „gerettet“.   Alice, bitter enttäuscht, lässt Nico stehen und haut mit Frank ab. Der Anfang vom Ende. Frank möchte mit Alice seinen Geburtstag feiern und so alles in Sachen Liebe nachholen. Alice weist ihn zurück. Frank dreht durch, Alice versteckt sich vor ihm im Bad. Nico spielt den Rächer, schlägt Frank fast tot und flüchtet mit Alice aus dem Niemandsland.
Nur ein Stück von Berlin entfernt befindet man sich am Ende der Welt. Hier, an der angeblich befriedeten Grenze, ist die Zeit stehen geblieben. Obwohl die Ost-West-Grenze inzwischen an die polnisch-ukrainische Grenze verlagert wurde, versuchen immer noch Flüchtlinge über die Oder-Neiße-Grenze nach Deutschland zu gelangen. Man verdächtigt alle, die hier fremd sind, die Taxifahrer dürfen sie nicht mitnehmen, der BGS und eine Bürgerwehr schauen nach dem Rechten.
Ein tragisch-komischer Trip an die Ostgrenze. Ein Eastern.
