Germany released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: German ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Biographies, Featurette, Interactive Menu, SYNOPSIS: This is the unusual omnibus project: under the artistic direction of actor-director Rolf Peter Kahl, twelve young filmmakers have come together to tell small stories on a symbolic budget of 99 euros each. Logically enough, the outcome is entitled 99 Euro-Films and is a varied and insightful programme of short films, with works by Mark Schlichter, Sebastian Beer, Daniel Petersen, RP Kahl, Frieder Schlaich, Michael Klier, Miriam Dehne, Matthias Glasner, Peter Lohmeyer, Esther Gronenborn, Martin Walz and Nicolette Krebitz. By the way, the film was produced by Filmfest Oldenburg. The shortest film in the programme took the longest to shoot. 80000 Shots by Manfred Walther depicts the redevelopment of Potsdamer Platz. From 1990 to 2001, the filmmaker observed people, machines and history at work with his time-lapse camera. The result is a 55-minute symphony of images and music (composer: Andreas Czeschka). ...99 Euro Films
