Ton-Bild-Zeit: Filmemacher/innen und ihr Werk

The "Film and Moving Image" of the Kunsthochschule Kassel in cooperation with the Filmladen Kassel e.V. present:

The Amitié
Directed by: Kollektiv Amitié

Actors: Sylwia Gola, Yann Mbiene, Walter Hess
Germany 2023, 102 minutes

Two people arrive in a bus: AGNIESZKA from Poland, to care for an elderly gentleman who is slowly drifting into oblivion. DIEUDONNÉ from the Ivory Coast, to work in a huge greenhouse. You are not alone. Armies of friendly care workers look after confused Germans. Migrant workers harvest, pack and deliver organic vegetables. At first glance, this may look like a 21st century slave labor system. But the supposedly subalterns communicate via a perfect network: the AMITIÉ. A self-learning artificial intelligence that is capable of exchanging information, teaching languages, comparing migration routes, finding jobs and transferring money. An AI that anyone can join, a virtual reality that anyone can enter. Friendship has replaced fraternization. If it weren't for the crazy policeman on the hunt for people smugglers!

"Made on a shoestring budget, "Die Amitié" is a rare case of a successful German utopian science fiction film" Fabian Tietke, Perlentaucher.

"A rollercoaster ride with surrealistic elements that cares little about probability!" EPD FILM.

After the screening: Ute Holl and Peter Ott in conversation with Anna Berger and Jan Peters.
