LUCAS 1989

Juliana lives in one of the Barriadas, the slum areas of Lima. The 13-year-old wants to get away from home and from her stepfather who is abusive towards her and her mother: to be independent like her brother Clavito and roam the city buses as a street musician for crook Don Pedro. As a girl, however, she stands no chance in the gang, and so she bravely cuts her hair to become „Julian“. Soon it dawns on her that Don Pedro only uses her and the boys. When on top of that her deceit is revealed, Juliana has nothing more to lose: she stands up to Don Pedro. The film takes a nearly documentary approach to its protagonists’ lives – all of which are amateur actors – and thus radiates the force of a bold utopia.

George is the son of a white settler family based in America, and lives at a time when the ground of that continent is fought for by the English, French and Native Americans. One day, a group of Iroquois Indians capture the boy, and take him into their tribe. Blue Bird, a boy of his age, recently died, so George is set to take his place. His new father Small Bear and his new mother Midday Sun try their best to introduce him to the tribal life, and after a while, George doesn’t only get used to his new life, but he also starts to see the social benefits of the Native American community. Seven years later, a contract between the whites and the Native Americans is made: all adopted and captured whites must be set free. That’s how George is reunited with his real parents. However, he can no longer identify with that ‘new world’, built upon the suppression and extermination of Native Americans, and he decides to return to the Iroquois.

HENRY AND VERLIN / HENRY UND VERLIN


CA 1994, D: Gary Ledbetter, 88 Min.
Fiction, German version, FSK age rating 6+, recommended for 8+
AWARD WINNER LUCAS 1995

Henry and his nine-year-old nephew Verlin are the best of friends. However, a lot of people in the village disapprove of that friendship, because Henry is mentally retarded and acts like a child. Verlin isn’t what you’d call ‘normal’, either: he retreats into his shell like a snail, and refuses to take part in life actively. No matter what his parents try, he doesn’t speak. When he’s with Henry, Verlin doesn’t need to talk, because on their crazy and sometimes dangerous adventures, the two of them understand each other without words. When they get into great danger as a result of carelessness, there seems to be no other option: Henry has to go to a mental institution. Verlin is all alone again. He falls into a deep coma, and is brought to the institution too.
