Part 02

Music is colorful, diverse and vibrant as the butterflies. Almost 180,000 different species live in 127 families. The music by Boris Brejcha is like a “Feuerfalter” (copper). On one side the butterfly is relaxing and floating on the wind, but on the other hand he also sets with steam and fire to a fall into a low altitude. This is how it feels when Brejcha makes music.

“Love Steaks” director Jakob Lass received the award for the best German-language young talent movie, which includes prize money of 36,000 Euros, on Saturday night in Saarbrücken. “Love Steaks” is “not only a movie but a gift to the audience which is simply brimming over with energy, enthusiasm, colours and love, and shows once again what cinema is able to achieve”, the jury explains its decision. As the distributor, daredo media is more than happy for the team winning this prize! After receiving all four advancement awards at the Filmfest Munich 2013 for the first time in history, namely “Best Movie”, “Best Production”, “Best Theatrical Performance” and “Best Script” and having been listed in the pre-selection for the German Filmpreis 2014, this is already the third big acknowledgement for “Love Steaks”.Besides this, the Grand Prize of the Saarland First Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer was awarded to Nico Sommer for “Familienfieber”, including prize money of 5,500 Euros, which is one of the next movies that daredo media will take care of.

digedo-saarbrucken-140122.jpgBoth our much-noticed initial project “Love Steaks” by talented director Jakob Lass as well as the presumably next movie that we are presenting via our new Darling Berlin label, “Familienfieber” (“Family Fever”), directed by Nico Sommer who is known from his current successful movie SILVI, are featured in the competition at the Saarbrücken Film Festival “Max-Ophüls-Preis”!

Despite being produced with just a minimum budget but with a maximum of lifeblood, “Love Steaks” has already gained high attention in the business by winning all four advancement awards at the Filmfest Munich for the first time in history, namely “Best Movie”, “Best Production”, “Best Theatrical Performance” und “Best Script”, and by having caused a sensation at several film festivals around the world (Slamdance, Karlovy Vary, Montréal et al.). In January 2014, the movie was listed in the pre-selection for the German Filmpreis and is thus qualified for the nomination process. It gets a viewing slot at the Berlinale 2014 will make a run at the LOLA.

“Familienfieber” is an experimental German movie that actually has its international premiere at the prestigious Saarbrücken Film Festival. However, the movie is not finished yet – “Familienfieber” is to become an interactive film: Additionally to the already existing project, a follow-up shooting will be realized and alternative story threads are to be produced. This means that the viewer – be it at the cinema, on BluRay/DVD or in the web (via VOD) – has, at certain points in the movie, the possibility to decide how the story should continue. The viewer is able to actively choose between the options A and B. Thus, we want to link the congenial topic of the movie with the self-reflection of the viewer, because every decision he makes for the film plot is actually a decision for himself. Hence, the movie reaches an emotional idealization that, in this intensive way, could never be created with a conventional production.

Superluminal

Mole Listening Pearls welcome a brand new signing. Superluminal – a production trio from Warsaw, Poland, formed in 2011. Superluminal performs electronic music, saturated with colour, teeming with expression, resonating with dynamics, luxuriant in depth and full of other relevant nerdy scientific verbal equations. Electromagnetism, strong nuclear force, weak nuclear force and gravity – these are the four main forces governing the stability of our reality. Just like the perfect balance of melody, harmony and rhythm render absolute music. Superluminal strives to find this balance and exceed the established criteria of electronic music production with no compromises, encompassing influences from jazz, rock, soul, modernism, film, photography and graphical art. Superluminal is not afraid to play its music live – with almost infinite amount of cables connecting synthesizers, laptops, midi controllers, microphones, guitars and saxophones, in a seemingly chaotic fashion. Superluminal is – coherence, manipulation and reason. The first single “Make it Better” will be released in February, the album “Pacifica” will follow in spring 2014 on Mole Listening Pearls.
