Speed – Auf der Suche nach der verlorenen Zeit (2012)

Wer oder was treibt die Beschleunigung der modernen Zeit eigentlich an? Ist sie ein gesellschaftliches Phänomen oder liegt alles vielleicht doch nur an unserem mangelhaften Zeitmanagement? In seinem Dokumentarfilm begibt sich der Filmemacher und Autor Florian Opitz auf die Suche nach der verlorenen Zeit. Wo ist sie nur geblieben, die Zeit, die wir mühsam mit all den neuen Technologien und Effizienzmodellen eingespart haben?

Opitz begegnet auf seiner Suche Menschen, die die Beschleunigung vorantreiben, und solchen, die sich trauen, Alternativen zur allgegenwärtigen Rastlosigkeit zu leben. Er befragt Zeitmanagement-Experten, Therapeuten und Wissenschaftler über die Ursachen und Auswirkungen der chronischen Zeitnot. Er trifft Unternehmensberater und Akteure, die auf dem internationalen Finanzmarkt aktiv sind und an der Zeitschraube drehen. Und er lernt Menschen kennen, die aus ihrem ganz privaten Hamsterrad ausgestiegen sind und nach gesellschaftlichen Alternativen suchen. Auf seiner Suche entdeckt er: Ein anderes Tempo ist möglich, wir müssen es nur wollen.

Socrates (1971)

This is one of several biographical films by the famed Italian neorealist director Roberto Rossellini, one of whose better-known films is Stromboli. The script is based on Platonic dialogues and the few-known historical facts about the philosopher Socrates. Socrates was a key figure in the history of Western thought, and his method of inquiry sets the tone for serious philosophical inquiry down to the present day. This film presents his life in an undramatic, documentary style.

Velorama (2014)

Documentary looking at a century of cycling. Commissioned to mark the arrival of the 2014 Tour de France in Yorkshire, the film makes full use of stunning British Film Institute footage to transport the audience on a journey from the invention of the modern bike, through the rise of recreational cycling, to gruelling competitive races. Award-winning director Daisy Asquith artfully combines the richly-diverse archive with a hypnotic soundtrack from cult composer Bill Nelson in a joyful, absorbing watch for both cycling and archive fans.

The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz (2014)

The film follows the story of programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz. From Swartz’s help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartz’s groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It was a battle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26. Aaron’s story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties.

Svet stav (2014)

Športne stave so dobičkonosen posel s katerim se ukvarjajo milijoni. Ilegalne in zasebne spletne stavnice so povzročile revolucijo v prirejanju stav in pritegnile stavce iz vsega sveta. Veliki zaslužki so premamili tudi kriminalne organizacije – stavne sindikate, ki služijo s prirejanjem izidov in stavnih trgov ter postajajo največje zlo modernega športa. Vedno več je primerov, športov in držav, kjer so preiskave že prinesle obsodbe, tudi v Sloveniji smo obravnavali nedovoljeno prirejanje stav in prirejanje izidov zaradi zaslužkov na stavnicah.
