100 Cinemas remember Bruno Schulz – worldwide
Sunday, November 19, 2017 – 75th anniversary of his assassination
FINDING PICTURES – Connecting memories all over the world – Be part of it!

We are delighted to draw your attention to a worldwide cinema event and we would be pleasured if you could inform your friends, acquaintances, relatives and colleagues about this unique event in advance. Connecting memories all over the world – Be part of it! 
2017 is the 125th birthday and the 75th anniversary of Bruno Schulz's assassination (1892 – 1942). 
The writer and painter, was born as an Austrian, lived as a Pole and died as a Jew. He gained reputation in Poland with his story collections The Street of Crocodiles and Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass. Bruno Schulz is considered one of the most influential, but barely known writers of the 20
th Century. His magnum opus The Messiah is still lost. 
In 1942 under German occupation Bruno Schulz had to make several murals as the "Leibjude" for the Viennese "SS-Hauptscharführer" and "Blutordensträger" Felix Landau. 
The Worldwide screening – 100 Cinemas remember Bruno Schulz has the goal to create an international and interrelated remembrance work, which gives the opportunity to tribute one of the most influential but hardly known Polish-Jewish painters and writers (translated into 39 languages) of the 20th Century and his tragic fate under the terror of German occupation in the Galician city of Drohobycz in 1941-42. 
On Sunday, November 19, 2017, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of Bruno Schulz's assassination, the award-winning documentary Finding Pictures will be screened all over the world, exactly fifteen years after his world premiere at the Center for Jewish History in New York City. Finding Pictures will be presented in 11 languages in over 80 cities in Austria, Brazil, Czech Republic, Ecuador, Germany, Israel, Italy, Macedonia, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Ukraine and the United States. 

Below you can see a list of the participating cinemas divided by country (cities, cinema, local projection times) of
100 Cinemas remember Bruno Schulz – worldwide, Sunday, November 19, 2017 - Here you can see the internatinal Event-Trailer on YouTube

Idendity and Action
in Uncerctian Times

After 3 years of hard work our documentary  "… Messina"  is ready – despite the lack of film funds and TV participations in Germany. This long-term observation is a current and poetic metaphor of Europe.

But even if we did not find a suitable premiere venue, considering the film's actuality and on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, the G7-Summit in Taormina and the G20-Summit in Hamburg,  we decided to put the online movie trailer on Vimeo and YouTube.

We are also pleased to present 3 excellent comments, from people who have already seen the whole film “… Messina”: 

Really impressive Story; in my opinion exactly the kind of European film, we need now: concrete, on-site, reassuring, not postulating but developing values out of the subject matter.
Martin Hagemann
, Film producer and Professor of Film and Television Production at the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF

I watched the movie at once, and it was truly gripping. It is the same type of real-life fiction that inspires novels. Not to mention that absolutely great D’Arrigo.
Claudio Magris
, recipient of the Erasmus Prize, Prince of Asturias Award, Peace Prize of the German Book Trade, visiting professor at the Collège de France

I finally watched your movie – and I am glad that I waited for a quiet and concentrated moment to do so. Because the pictures clearly depict the fictional world of D’Arrigo. The necessarily vague contours are given a clarity I felt I was living in for moments. 
And without being able to precisely analyze and describe it, I had the impression that the rhythm of your movie transferred the book’s often dominant prosaic rhythm to a new dimension. 
A commentary, an intellectual debate – and at the same time a “realization” in the medium of pictures.
I am very grateful to you for this.

Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht
, Professor of Literature and Comparative Literature, Stanford University, California, USA, visiting professor at the Collège de France
