Cine Latino 2024

It's that time again. CineLatino is just around the corner.
The 31st CineLatino and the 21st CineEspañol will take place from May 1st to 8th in Tübingen, Reutlingen, Stuttgart and Freiburg. The Stuttgart program begins on Thursday May 2nd and ends on Wednesday May 8th.
A good opportunity to see numerous films from Spain and Latin America in the original version with subtitles!

The country focus is Peru.
In this year's edition of the festival we would like to bring you closer to the diversity of the third largest country in South America after Brazil and Argentina! Peru is largely located in the Amazon rainforest. Mostly known for Machu Picchu, an ancient Inca sanctuary high in the Andes, and numerous other archaeological sites of the Inca culture.
Topic focus: Encountering the Andes differently – change in the highlands of Peru
CineLatino 2024 focuses on the population groups of Peru, on the longest mountain range in the world: the Andes. What opportunities do the different generations of the Altiplano have in the face of climate change, marginalization and destruction of indigenous cultures?

Opening on Thursday, May 2nd at 20 p.m. in Stuttgart
The festival begins in Stuttgart on Thursday, May 2.5nd. at 20 p.m. with the film “Las hijas” (The Daughters) by Kattia G. Zúñiga, Panama/Chile 2023, 80 min., OmeU, which was awarded “Best Film” in Malaga. Two sisters on a journey to visit their father make new friends, flirt and discover their sexuality. A colorful teenage life towards emancipation.

Another reference to a Stuttgart specialty:
Thematic afternoon, this time about Nicaragua
1979 revolution in Nicaragua - back then the beginning of a dream for many leftists and today?
A dream of revolution, documentary, 95 minutes, written and directed by Petra Hoffmann

When the revolution triumphed in Nicaragua almost 45 years ago, a dream began. A young generation takes over the government in a country of great utopia. From West Germany alone, 15.000 “Brigadists” are coming to rebuild the country that has been bled dry: Liberals, Greens, trade unionists, social democrats, leftists and church representatives harvest coffee and cotton, build schools, kindergartens and hospital wards. No movement has mobilized so many people. What happened to the wishes and dreams of revolutionaries and their supporters?
Petra Hoffmann, who will be available for the interview, was unable to travel to Nicaragua to film due to the current political situation, the Ortega dictatorship.
For her film, she uses historical film clips, statements from those involved in the trial, but also statements from former comrades in arms from Europe with whom she met in Costa Rica on the border with Nicaragua.

Municipal specialist conference

Images – Opinions – Perspectives – Creating lively municipal partnerships

This year's municipal expert forum organized by the Association of Baden-Württemberg Cities and the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation focuses on the upcoming local elections and their importance for global partnerships. In light of the increasing polarization of political and social discourse, narratives critical of partnerships are gaining strength. The focus of the municipal expert forum is therefore the question: How can and must global partnerships be argued in the local political context in order to continue to exist in the future?

Speakers:NN

EXPERIENCE TOUR NECKAR-ODENWALD CIRCLE: ESCAPE, FOOD, CLIMATE CHANGE – LEARNING FROM HISTORY FOR THE FUTURE

How are flight, nutrition and climate change related? On a bike tour we discover global connections and derive solutions for the future from the past. We start together at the train station in Buchen. The Eiermann-Magnani House in Hettingen, a post-war cooperative settlement, shows how refugees once took their lives into their own hands. This leads us to look at current causes of flight worldwide. Then we go to the green kernel kiln in Buchen-Rinschheim. Grünkern was invented in the Odenwald during the famine years in the 19th century, and today it is an example of innovative food production to alleviate hunger in the world. And at the Eberstadt stalactite cave we learn something about the effects of climate change on countries in the Global South. If you wish, you can then independently visit the stalactite cave.

The tour is aimed at adults and children aged 12 and over (only when accompanied by an adult).
Please bring your own safe bikes and helmets. There is no rental option. The route is suitable for conventional or e-bikes. (20 km cycle path, 230 meters altitude)

EXHIBITION CLIMATE:WATER

Water connects people: The children Romy and Mina from Calmbach with Sudhari, David and Lengaiah in Guntur/India, Luca Haist in Enzklösterle with Mamou Sangaré in Bougouni/Mali, Adam Hammann from Agenbach with Saúl Luciano Lliuya in Huaraz/Peru and Malte Elsässer in Bad Wildbad. Many others share the experience with you: water is necessary for life.

In this exhibition, people are the focus. They tell us their stories and invite us to think and think further.

Water cannot be taken for granted. Water is the basis of all life. Streams, rivers, lakes, wetlands and seas are the habitat of a large number of plants and animals and are important components of the natural balance. In the high-altitude towns in today's Bad Wildbad, tap water only came out of the tap at the end of the 19th century. In many dry areas of the world, water has to be laboriously transported over long distances.

Man-made climate change with increasing global warming is melting glaciers worldwide and at the same time leading to the drying up of streams and rivers, threatening the living conditions of people, birds and animals. The consequences of heat and drought can be seen in regions of the Global South. Effective protection and careful use of water as a resource are prerequisites for biological diversity and sustainable use.

“Everything is connected to everything else.” According to Alexander von Humboldt's motto, the exhibition aims to focus attention on people who are concerned about the valuable resource of water.
