    24 MIN / COL / S16 MM (35 MM BLOW UP) / DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 / GERMAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES FEAT.: FELIX KRAMER; SANDRA HÜLLER; KNUT BERGER; CHRISTOPH TOMANEK; DOMINIK LINDHORST; SOPHIE CONRAD; HELMUT RÜHL SYNOPSIS: "A dark costume drama set around the dawning of the X-ray machine. Young doctor Georg believes that the newly invented apparatus can cure anything. His medical quest estranges him from his wife Charlotte. To counter the growing distance between them Charlotte puts herself completely behind her husband’s cause. Meticulous attention is paid to detail in this period piece. As every element breathes the grim expectation of horrible consequences, the story inevitably spirals out of control."

      Welcome to food. curated. Meet Sarah Lohman. She's not a professional cook, nor a historian, yet what she is passionate about involves both cooking and history. Sarah is a rare breed of hobbyist. A "historic gastronomist". She rediscovers and recreates American recipes that went out of style hundreds of years ago. For her, it is the closest thing to time travel...reawakening her senses and opening doors to old flavors and ideas that had once been pop culture. And it's a hobby not without purpose. She uses these discoveries to introduce new ingredients and techniques into her cooking today. A trend, she says, that is catching on with chefs all over New York City. food. curated. spent an afternoon with Sarah in her "kitchen lab" and at Brooklyn's Old Stonehouse to see what a typical day of recipe testing is like...

Digital modeling tools turn twelve original photographs into a single solid. That solid becomes 3D printed parts made for bronze investment casting in a process invented for this project.

          "In the Usual Manner" was made in conjunction with The Huntington's Civil War photography exhibition, "A Strange and Fearful Interest: Death, Mourning, and Memory in the American Civil War," which ran from Oct. 13, 2012, through Jan. 14, 2013. It was awarded a Jurors' Citation at the 2013 Black Maria Film + Video Festival, in Jersey City, NJ, and was a finalist in the documentary category at the 2013 Humboldt Film Festival. For audio commentary and more, visit the exhibition website at http://huntington.org/civilwar. Information on the exhibition can be found at http://www.huntington.org/huntingtonlibrary_02.aspx?id=10456. From the "Strange and Fearful Interest" website— Making photographs in the field during the Civil War was a complicated and disaster-prone affair. It involved a portable darkroom, bulky cameras, large sheets of glass, volatile chemicals, and clean water, not to mention resourcefulness and nerves of steel. A productive day might yield 20 pictures. The demanding nature of the process makes it a captivating one to witness, especially in an era of instantaneous image-making. In the evocative film shown here, Barret Oliver brings his darkroom and gear to the Huntington Library to produce hauntingly beautiful work ‘in the usual manner’ of the nineteenth-century photographer.

                  Leung Jan (Yuen Biao) is a young man in a wealthy family living in Foshan in the mid-19th century. He is a martial artist trained by two instructors in his father's employ. He has fought over three hundred times in Foshan and won every fight, but unbeknownst to him, his father has arranged for his servant Yee Tong Choi (Chan Lung) to bribe Jan's opponents to lose to him in order to protect him. This has caused Jan to believe that he is a world-class fighter, but in truth he hasn't even mastered the basics of kung fu and any real fighter could easily defeat him. Everyone knows this but him, giving him the nickname "The Prodigal Son" behind his back. One night, three of Jan's friends attend a performance by the Lok Fung Lin Chinese Opera troupe. One of Jan's friends is attracted to the lead actress and asks her out on a date after the performance. She refuses, but he insists and even harasses her. She reveals herself to be a man, Leung Yee-tai (Lam Ching-ying), a master of Wing Chun. He beats up and humiliates Jan's friends. Jan challenges Yee-tai to a fight to avenge the insults to his friends. As usual, Yee Tong Choi tries to bribe Yee-tai to lose, but Yee-tai refuses, easily defeats Jan, and reveals the truth about his martial arts ineptitude to him. Jan, desiring to learn real kung fu, asks Yee-tai to teach him Wing Chun. Yee-tai refuses because he thinks Jan would probably misuse it, but Jan has his father buy the Lok Fung Lin troupe and gives himself a job as Yee-tai's personal assistant, insisting on following Yee-tai everywhere until Yee-tai agrees to teach him Wing Chun. This continues for six months. The Lok Fung Lin troupe travels to Canton. There, Yee-tai's Wing Chun skills are witnessed by Lord Ngai Fai (Frankie Chan), the son of a Manchu duke, who is also a martial arts master and is hunting for a worthy opponent. Ngai forces Yee-tai to fight him. Ngai and Yee-tai are evenly matched until Yee-tai has an asthma attack. Ngai stops the fight and postpones it until Yee-tai is healthy and fit for it. It is revealed that Ngai is also a "prodigal son;" unbeknownst to him, his father has ordered his bodyguards to protect him from anyone who might beat him in a fight. However, their methods are more ruthless and brutal than the bribery employed by Jan's parents; they resort to assassination. During the night, Ngai's bodyguards and a team of assassins infiltrate the Lok Fung Lin theater, massacre the troupe, and burn down the theater. Yee-tai is having trouble sleeping because of his asthma, and he sees light reflected off an assassin's blade through his eyelids and reacts in time to escape along with Jan. The assassins think they died in the fire, as does everyone else. Yee-tai takes Jan to the home of his martial brother Wong Wah-bo (Sammo Hung). With Wah-bo's help, Jan finally convinces Yee-tai to teach him Wing Chun. Jan trains under both Yee-tai and Wah-bo; Yee-tai trains him in Wing Chun and Wah-bo trains him in freestyle fighting. Over time, Jan achieves proficiency in martial arts, but Yee-tai's asthma is worsening. Jan takes Yee-tai back to Foshan to see a doctor. There, Ngai learns that Yee-tai is still alive, and he visits him. Yee-tai reveals that Ngai's bodyguards have been assassinating everyone who might beat Ngai. The bodyguards murder Yee-tai. Ngai, horrified, has his bodyguards executed. Jan challenges Ngai to a fight. Using everything that Yee-tai and Wah-bo taught him, he manages to beat Ngai.

                      Wir bewegen ein einzigartiges Gedankenexperiment. Wie hätte das erste Pedalrad im Jahr 1865 ausgesehen, wenn den Fahrradpionieren moderne Werkstoffe von heute zur Verfügung gestanden hätten? BASF entwickelte gemeinsam mit dem Designstudio DING3000 ein Veloziped auf dem Stand der heutigen Technik. Dabei zitiert das innovative Einzelstück die Geometrie und Funktionsweise der ersten Pedalräder. BASF will mit der Designstudie Concept 1865 nicht das Rad neu erfinden. Unter dem Motto »Rethinking Materials« ist das ungewöhnliche E-Bike vielmehr eine Einladung an Kunden und Interessierte, gemeinsam mit dem Unternehmen neue Anwendungen und Produktideen auf Basis moderner Kunststoffe zu entwickeln. ___ We put a unique thought experiment in motion. What would the first velocipede have looked like in 1865 if today's modern materials had been available to the pioneers of the bicycle? Along with the design studio DING3000, BASF has developed a state-of-the-art velocipede based on state-of-the-art materials science. This innovative prototype rhymes with the geometry and functionality of the early velocipede. BASF is not trying to reinvent the wheel with its "Concept 1865" design study. On the contrary, with "Rethinking Materials" as it slogan, this unusual e-bike is an invitation extended to customers and interested parties alike to collaborate with the company in the development of new applications and product ideas based on modern plastics.
