Id without colors – In der Ankündingung heißt es:

Der Migrationsrat Berlin – Brandenburg und die Kampagne für Opfer rassistischer Polizeigewalt präsentieren den ersten Dokumentarfilm über Racial Profiling in Deutschland.

“Auch in Berlin gehört Racial Profiling zur Tagesordnung. Aus aller Welt kommen Menschen in die deutsche Hauptstadt, um die künstlerische und kulturelle Atmosphäre der Stadt zu genießen. „Berlin ist multikulti“ ist das Image, das sich die Hauptstadt auf die Fahne geschrieben hat. Die Realität ist komplizierter.

Seit 2002 wurden in einer berlinweiten Chronik über 150 Fälle rassistischer Polizeigewalt von der Berliner Kampagne für Opfer rassistischer Polizeigewalt (KOP) dokumentiert.”

*

Wo kommst Du wirklich her?
von Christina Antonakos Wallace

Durch die Stimmen von zehn jungen Menschen, die in Berlin und New York leben, setzt sich der Dokumentarfilm mit Migration und nationaler Identität auseinander. Die jungen Menschen erzählen von der Zeit der Einwanderung ihrer Familien und davon wie sie von anderen gesehen werden und wie sie sich selbst sehen. Auch wenn sie auf zwei verschiedenen Kontinenten leben, teilen sie ähnliche Fragen, Ängste, Träume und Erfahrungen.

The land between (Englisch/Spanisch/Französisch mit dt. Untertitel)

http://thelandbetweenfilm.com/

Einer der besten und intimsten Filme über Melilla und die Absurdität des EU – Flüchtlingsrechts. David Fedele zeigt nicht die üblichen Stimmen von Helfern, NGO´s oder Politiker – er zeigt die Menschen und ihre Motive in diesem “land between” zwischen Marokko und Spanien.

Gewinner des Lampedusa Migrant Film Festivals und vieler weiterer Preise.

*

THE LAND BETWEEN offers an intimate insight into the hidden and desperate lives of Sub-Saharan African migrants living in the mountains of northern Morocco. For most, their dream is to enter Europe by jumping a highly-militarised barrier into Melilla, a Spanish enclave on the African continent.

With unique and unprecedented access, this film documents the everyday life of these migrants trapped in limbo, as well as the extreme violence and constant mistreatment they face from both the Moroccan and Spanish authorities. It also explores many universal questions, including how and why people are prepared to risk everything, including their life, to leave their country, their family and friends, in search of a new and better life.

“THE LAND BETWEEN is not only an excellent film, but also a political catalyst that unsettles the viewer
and turns his empathy into anger. The sort of anger that brings the anticipation of change.”

Festival of Migrant Film 2014 – Ljubljana, Slovenia
Winner of Lampedusa Film Festival and several other festivals

Nine Days on the roof (Denise Garcia – Bergt, 2014, 30min., Englisch)

Nach “Residenzpflicht (2011) der neue Film von Denise Garcia Bergt über den Widerstand der Flüchtlinge in der Gerhard – Hauptmann Schule in Kreuzberg gegen eine Räumung und für den Kampf um eine Etablierung eines internationales Flüchtlingszentrums in Berlin in der Schule.

Denise arbeitet selbst seit Jahren mit Flüchtlingen, auch in der Schule im “Womens Space”.

 

9 days pic web

On the 24th of June, 2014 the district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg made an operation called “voluntary moving”. The idea was to empty the former Gerhart-Hauptmann school, occupied by refugees since December 2012. The procedure involved over 1000 police officers and blocked the complete neighbourhood. From the 300 of the school’s inhabitants, around 40 people didn’t accept to leave. Instead they stayed inside and resisted for 9 days on the roof of the building.

Stateless

 

Strictly ambient instrumental album by dirty beaches.  Cool synth sound scapes, viola and Alex playing the tenor saxophon. Back to the roots of the early works released on fiction records. Like a dystopian soundtrack to the recent refugee catastrophes with track names like “displaced” or “stateless”, with a picture of two black men on a boat looking at the ocean on the backcover.

But let´s not overinterprete things. Here´s Alex´

Statement:

All seasons are cyclical, like real life shit. We adapt and venture through each phase with intentions of engagement, embracing mistakes and chances that eventually become the foundation of identities and roles we take on in life. All pain is temporary, as in joy, anger, doubt and all human emotions. Nothing is forever. Just a constant cyclical randomization processed in patterns and algorithms. We can’t predict life, but we can try to brace ourselves for the ever changing tides of time.

Some dreams, are worth breaking your limbs for.

Die Veranstaltungsreihe Weißensee MACHT Vielfalt möchte anhand von Workshops, Diskussionen, Ausstellungen, Kunstaktionen und Filmvorführungen einen Impuls für eine aktive Auseinandersetzung mit den Themen Migration, Flucht, Rassismus, Alltagsdiskriminierung und Diversität geben.

Wir wollen jegliche Art von gruppenbezogene Menschenfeindlichkeit und Diskriminierung sichtbar machen und bekämpfen, eine Sensibilisierung der Aufnahmegesellschaft für eine transkulturelle Diversität erreichen, sowie Bürger_innen anregen, sich für eine vielfältige, gerechte und solidarische Gesellschaft einzusetzen und sich für Menschenrechte und Flüchtlingsschutz zu engagieren.

Das zweiwöchige Programm vom 19.11.2014 bis 3.12.2014 bietet ein vielfältiges Angebot für unterschiedliche Zielgruppen in Weißensee/Pankow Heinersdorf an, in denen eine umfassende Auseinandersetzung mit dieser Thematik ermöglicht wird.

Das Projekt findet in Kooperation mit OASE Berlin und in enger Zusammenarbeit mit lokalen Netzwerken, Initiativen und engagierten Akteuren statt.

Trixiewiz e.V invites you to join our two week program “Weissensee MACHT Vielfalt” [Weissensee DOES Diversity] taking place in Weissensee and Pankow Heinersdorf from November 19th till December 3rd 2014.

By taking a critical approach to subjects like migration, refugees, diversity and (everyday) racism, we want to raise awareness and achieve a debate and more engagement in human rights and migration issues. There will be workshops, film screenings, discussions, exhibitions and art events.
The project takes place in cooperation with OASE Berlin e.V. and close collaboration with local networks, initiatives, engaging protagonists and is funded by the federal programme „TOLERANZ FÖRDERN, KOMPETENZ STÄRKEN“.

November 19th 2014 marks the start of the program in Kino Toni for a matinee screening of the film documentaries ID-WITHOUTCOLORS and Wo kommst du wirklich her [Where are you REALLY from?]. Invited are particularly youngsters and school classes to reflect about every day racism, identity and stigmata. After the screening there will be a discussion with Olga Gerstenberger of the educational team With WINGS and ROOTS and Biplab Basu from the campaign for the victims of police violence (KOP) and the NGO ReachOut. The artist Yagi Taffere will open the evening program with her Performance Ahoi Lampedusa, in which she reflects on the global agony and the loss due to forced migration and leaving home.

The premiere screening of the film Nine days on the roof – Widerstand in der von Flüchtlingen besetzten Schule ]Nine days on the roof – Resistance in the refugee squatted school] tells the story of the protests in the former Gerhart-Hauptmann-School in Berlin. The award winning documentary movie The land between by David Fedele shows the consequences of fatal politics concerning african asylum seekers and their life in the Spanish enclave Ceuta, this „Land between“, where you can already see the Rock of Gibraltar, that is in fact almost impossible to reach. After the screenings there will be a discussion with the director of the movie Nine days on the roof, Denise Garcia Bergt, with Harald Glöde of Borderline Europe, the lawyer Berenice Böhlo and the refugee activists Napuli and the political activist Nadiye.

On November 22, 2014 in Frei-Zeit-Haus Weissensee, the Empowerment-Training Stark durch meine Geschichte! [Strong because of my history!] will give space to Women with a migration background, black women, women of color and female migrants for an exchange about discrimination experiences and to find strategies for self-empowerment. November 28th 2014, there is a Skill enhancement for a critical pedagogical approach to racism with Tugba Tanyilmaz and Regina Knoll, designed for educators and people working in the social practice, who want to strengthen their pedagogical skills reflecting racism.

After the inter-religious excursion through Weissensee and Heinersdorf on november 23rd , where we want to discover religious traces, there will be a screening of the documentary film Augen AUF! [Open your Eyes!] that is based on the experiences of seven young women who reflect on personal experiences with discrimination. The film will be shown at the Kinder- und Jugendclub Maxim

Two exhibitions Eine visuelle Sprache der Migration [A visual Language of Migration] by the kollektiv migrantas and Stereotypen [Stereotypes] by the artist Patricia Vester will be shown during the two week programme.

Numerous art actions will be showing different positions of artists, who reflect central issues of the programme: Wie viel kostet ein Leben? [The value of human life] asks the Hassass Training Institute at the farmer’s market Antonplatz on november 25th. Diversiy, asylum seeking and moral courage are issues of the artist Rosaana Velasco in her art-action with youngsters. The performance Jeder* nach seinen Bedürfnissen [Everyone according to his* needs] on November 30th in KuBIZ, the artist Anahita Izadi asks questions about discrimination from the perspective of a high qualified young immigrant in Germany.

November 21st is an open projects day in the Kunsthochschule Weissensee: Kommen und Bleiben [Come and stay], a common cooperation between students and refugees, who live in the refugee dormitories in Pankow.
The program Weissensee MACHT Vielfalt ends with a finissage at Familienzentrum Weissensee. Here, at the workshop by the kollektiv migrantas, the visitors are invited to print pictograms on their bags to show their solidarity with refugees in public.

We want to visualise any kind of group focused enmity and discrimination and fight against these, we want to raise awareness of the host society for a trans-cultural diversity and encourage citizens to get involved for a diverse, fair and a solidly united society and to engage in human rights and refugee protection.

The little dog laughed radio # 9 – Rebetika special

Rita Abatzi

(engl.below)

Recordings from a greek underworld – ein Rebetika special  (zusammen mit Fiwi Daliani)

This thursday 2230 pm – 24pm / Donnerstag 30.Oct 2230-24h.
http://www.piradio.de (stream) or 88,4fm (Berlin)

Rebetiko, auch im Plural Rebetika oder deutsch Rembetiko genannt wird oft auch als der „griechische Blues“ bezeichnet, weil die Texte von den alltäglichen Sorgen und Erfahrungen der einfachen Leute und Einwanderern handeln. In den Anfängen seiner Entstehung wurden Rembetika nur von den in Piraeus lebenden Rembetes gespielt, meist Flüchtlingen, die im Jahr 1922, dem Jahr der sogenannten kleinasiatischen Katastrophe, aus Smyrna und anderen Orten Kleinasiens in das europäische griechische Kernland vertrieben worden waren. Später entwickelte sich daraus eine der populärsten Musikformen Griechenlands. Rebetiko erlebte in den 1930er bis 1950er Jahren seine Blütezeit.

Ich selbst werde eher die Einflüsse der Musik in den USA oder Armenien vorstellen und einige meiner Lieblingsongs von Rita Abadzi, Marika Papagika oder von der tollen „Mortika – Songs from a greek underworld“ compiliation auf Mississippi records spielen und am Ende vielleicht noch ein oder zwei Neuinterpretationen von Amen Dunes, Steve Gunn oder Ignatz von alten Rebetika Songs.

Ich freue mich aber, den Hauptteil der Musikauswahl unserem Gast Fiwi überlassen zu können und mehr über diese einzigartige Musik zu erfahren.

Steve Gunn (On a steady diet… Rebetika Sampler via free music archive for download here with other amazing interpretations of old greek rebetiko songs.

Recordings from a greek underworld – a Rebetiko spezial (together with Fiwi Daliani)

This thursday 2230 pm – 24pm / Donnerstag 30.Oct 2230-24h.
http://www.piradio.de (stream) or 88,4fm (Berlin)

Rebetiko, or Rebetika (plural) could be called something like the greek Blues, though the lyrics are those of the poor people,  immigrants with their daily sorrows and experiences.  In the beginning in the greek port of Piraeus there were mostly refugees, coming from Smyrna in the year 1922, taking refuge from asia to greece. Later rebetiko became one of the most popular musicgenre in Greece and had its peak in the 1930ies to the 1950er.

Me, I will concentrate more on the diaspora, the influence of the greek Rebetika in the US or in Armenia and present some of my beloved songs of Rita Abadzi, Marika Papagika or from the „Mortika – Songs from a greek underworld“ compiliation out via Mississippi records. And in the end theres time maybe for one or two interpretations of rebetika songs by new folk artists like Amen Dunes, Steve Gunn or Ignatz of old Rebetika songs.

I am happy that my greek friend greek Fiwi from Athens will play the majority of the songs selection thursday and tell something more about this extraordinary music.

Short cuts: Ought / Yupin Praething / Francois Tusques & Don Cherry & Morricone´s Veruschka Score

Here are some of my recent faves to survive the grey berlin autumn with 50 shades of grey.  Mostly in “shortcuts” with quotes & links to the releases for more infos.

Alors, on y va:

Extremly eclectic 4 track EP 10″ “Once More With Feeling” by Montreal´s postpunk band Ought. While “Pill” reminds of Sandro Perri´s fragile voice in the beginning, it ends with typical indie rock harmonies. The other 3 tracks are more avantgarde, more punk / post indie in a good “the fall” kind of sense. Here´s “new calm part 2″ in a earlier recorded version:

Ought will play 11th November in Berlin live in Privatclub.

Constellation:

“Four-piece post-punk group Ought has been gathering momentum the old-fashioned way, with a humble and deceptively unassuming debut album that’s been worming its way into many many ears thanks to its combination of intelligence, authenticity, directness, simplicity and energy; and with live performances in which the band’s channeling of genuine passion, politics and charisma are consistently connecting with and exuberantly galvanizing audiences.

(…) An intense weekend session at Montréal’s Hotel2Tango in June 2014 yielded new recordings of two early pieces, “Pill” and “New Calm Pt. 2″ (the self-recorded 2012 versions of which remain available on Ought’s Bandcamp) along with the brand new, more experimental and largely instrumental “New Calm Pt. 3″. The fantastic non-album track “Waiting” from the More Than Any Other Day sessions (and the first tune to be given out via Constellation when we announced the Ought signing) rounds out this 4-song, 24-minute, 10″ vinyl-only offering, suitably titled Once More With Feeling… “(…)

cover pb 07 web

Now to something completly different. Paradise Bangkok just released a new luk thung / molam 7″ called Onuma Singsiri/Yupin Praething b/w Lam Plearn Maeng Tub Tao/Mon Meuang Tai.

Especially the b-side is a monster of a song. Listen here to 90 seconds excerps of it – it´s worth it, promise!. There´s no more information about the singer Yupin Praething or the track to find than that:

“Originally available on a super rare 45rpm only run, Praething’s gorgeous vocal underlines the Indian roots of some of the Thai tradition, her voice offset by a plaintive violin meoldy, and a descending guitar line. Heading nodding, 3am percussion business of the highest order”.

 

//

 

cover finders keepers web

Another amazing spiritual 7″ comes just out comes from Finders Keeper´s free jazz label Cacophonic: Francois Tusques & Don Cherry perform indes/occident: More infos here:

“Cross-pollinating the wants lists of art/jazz/print and architecture enthusiasts this seldom sighted 45 single is regarded as the rarest “lost” recording by American jazz trumpeter and global communal music missionary Don Cherry as he collaborates with French piano improv genius François Tusques. A missing link in the pre-formative years of improvised jazz this mythical private pressing unites two of the key exponents of both American and French free jazz – two entirely independent musical art forms which by 1964 had yet to publicly entwine at the hands of bands like Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Sunny Murray, the Actuel magazine/label and Pan-African jazz festivals in the late 60s. This intimate recording was made to accompany an exhibition by pioneering Swiss/French architect Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris (better known as Le Corbusier) held in Tusques own home town of Nantes.
(…)
Housed in a two fold wrap-around sleeve identical to the original article this pocket document of a cross-continental jazz milestone also features a miscredited appearance by bass player Bernard “Beb” Guérin (BYG/Futura) and lays the foundations for Tusques’ imminent free jazz and le nouveau jazz LPs.”

cover light in the attic web

At last, here´s a reissue of Ennio Morricone´s amazing mysterious filmscore “Veruschka”, now for the first time on (double) LP via the light in the attic sublabel dagored:

http://lightintheattic.net/releases/1317-veruschka

“Ennio Morricone’s famous soundtrack composed for the 1971 Franco Rubartelli documentary “Veruschka, Poesia di una Donna” about the legendary VERUSCHKA the world’s first supermodel, a real 60’s/70’s icon, who appeared in several cult movies including Blow Up, Salome and Coleur Chai.

In the Rubartelli movie we follow the beautiful model in a shockingly surreal journey through the rural countryside of Italy on a downward spiral of self-discovery that leads her through so many whacked out head trips; heavily dark and sad with some of the most stunning psychedelic eye candy you can find from the freak out era of filmmaking perfectly tuned with one of Ennio Morricone’s best scores.A true one of a kind of experience!”

Listen:

Here´s the full movie with score “Veruschka poesia di una donna” (1971, italien)
