THE LIVING WITNESSES is a film tying the past to the present: from antisemitism, racism and the Holocaust of the Second World War to the new wave of racism emerging throughout Europe today.

Following three living witnesses from the Second World War, survivors of deportation or concentration camps and three students from Luxembourg either born here or immigrated from Syria or the Ivory Coast. With the deportation and the extermination of Jews in mind, the six living witnesses discover how crimes against humanity still play a considerable role in the consciousness of our societies today. We are still living in the post Second World War era, but the “never again” statements seem to fade away.

FAUSTINO: ONE-MAN-SHOW

On le connaît pour sa musique populaire, ses croisières de Pentecôte et ses bals
de carnaval. Très peu de gens toutefois savent que Fausti Cima, l’animateur le
plus populaire du Luxembourg, est aussi un musicien extrêmement chevronné,
que sa gamme musicale va du jazz au tango en passant par le swing et
évidemment la chanson populaire.
Après tout il fait de la scène depuis 63 ans ! Aux cafés, aux cabarets, aux
bases américaines, aux bals populaires… et des fois même au Palais Grand-
Ducal.
Faustino naît le 24 juillet 1940 à Luxembourg (Grund) dans une famille de
sept enfants. Très tôt il entre au Conservatoire, apprend l’accordéon et le
violon et à l’âge de 12 ans il commence à jouer comme accordéoniste un bal
populaire après l’autre. Dans les orchestres de Johnny Nimax et Jempi Faust il
joue de la guitare et de la contrebasse et devient très vite, dans la scène des
cabarets du quartier de la Gare, le batteur-star du Luxembourg. Fausti joue
avec l’orchestre RTL, chez Jean Roderes et enregistrera entre 1970 et 1974
plusieurs disques 33 tours avec le manager de musique sarrois Rudolf
Strassner, en l’occurrence des parodies de tubes anglais comme « Ich sitz’
hier im Schlauchboot » (« Me voilà assis dans mon pneumatique ») ou encore
« Das arme Mädchen von Seite 1 » (« La pauvre fille de la page 1 »).

ONE SAYS NO!

The small village of Yangji. First it was swallowed up by the vastly expanding city of Guangzhou (previously: Canton). Now the villagers are supposed to clear out their simple homes. Modern China doesn’t have room for these old eyesores in what has become the financial district, and investors are ravenous for inner city plots. Only few dare to resist the highly corrupt political and economic system, which has little time or patience for the needs of individuals. Family father Ah Zhong has risked everything – and has successfully resisted eviction from his home. Now he advises homeowners in Xian how they can defend their rights. To the opposing villagers, Ah Zhong is a role model and a hero. But they refuse to see that the price Ah Zhong had to pay for his victory was extremely high – perhaps too high. A Pyrrhic victory.

Taking the Dog for a Walk maps the scene of British Improvised Music, past and present. Alternating with extended music sequences, the conversations led by stand up comedian Stewart Lee gravitate around the idiosyncrasies of improvisation, from playing in front of the proverbial ‘four men and a dog’ to pursuing a career in a milieu where success is not measured by mainstream criteria.
