AFFR’s top 5 for Sunday 8 October

Every day, the AFFR team highlights a number of films and specials. Here are Sunday 8 October's tips!

AFFR’s top 5 for Sunday 8 October

Filmtip #1: The View, 13:00

A prison cell with a view of a blank wall or of a magnificent landscape: which punishment is more severe? According to the Danes, Greenland’s detainees serving their sentences in Danish prisons deserve better: a cell that looks out over the familiar imposing landscape of Greenland. A sensitive look at the dilemmas that arise with the construction of a new prison on the coast of Greenland.

Filmtip #2: the Cathedral, 15:00

For 70 years, Justo Gallego worked on the construction of a cathedral of epic proportions – without drawings, without any knowledge of building technology, and almost without any money. When he died in 2021 at the age of 96, he left behind an astonishing building. A film about hope and determination.

Filmtip #3: After the End of the World, 17:15

Nadim Mishlawi searches in Beirut for traces of his past. His film explores how you look at a city while exploring Beirut. But this is no ordinary city: it’s a city without a plan, where streets suddenly become narrower and buildings disappear all at once, like in a dream.

Filmtip #4: White Plastic Skies, 18:45

Breathtaking science-fiction animation film that makes it abundantly clear how badly we treat the earth. In the year 2123, in the not too distant future, a young man tries to save his wife. The love pops off the screen, yet it remains dystopian.

Filmtip #5: Pyramiden, 19:00

With the Soviet ghost town of Pyramiden on Spitsbergen, you’ve got the perfect decor for a post-apocalyptic story. A hunter tormented by dreams of polar bears wanders through the vacant buildings and gradually loses his grip on reality. Things aren’t really helped when he comes across a futurist seedbank after his departure.
