Halbmondwahrheiten - Crescent Moon Truths
Director: Bettina Blümner, 89 min, 2012
The Turkish men who regularly meet for the fathers’ support group at the Berlin association “Aufbruch Neukölln e. V.” have nothing in common with the clichés of authoritarian patriarchs. While talking about their conflicts, they sometimes appear almost helpless, and are often full of contradictions. Their focus is mostly on family problems. The openness with which they discuss these issues – in the presence of a female German filmmaker and her camerawoman – enables the viewer to gain new and more nuanced insight into a world that is usually inaccessible to outsiders.
Extras: Music play list and cash bar with selected cold beverage
