JACKPOT (feature film, D, 2020) by director Emily Atef, who received the Hans Vogt Film Award 2020 in Hof for her cinematic work: A bag with over 600,000 euros in cash, just like that in a towed car: when Maren, who works at the car yard, finds the bag, she can’t resist the temptation. But this is the beginning of a cat-and-mouse game of life and death. Thrilling to the last minute. In the ARD Mediathek until 24 June 2021 and on Wednesday, 24 March 2021 at 8:15 pm on ARD.
LE VÉNÉRABLE W.

In his documentary, Barbet Schroeder takes a look at the terrifying personality of the radical monk and sheds light on the extent to which he is one of the main perpetrators of the persecution of the Rohingya. A shocking portrait from Barbet Schroeder’s “Trilogy of Evil”. In the ARTE Mediathek until 31 March 2021 and on Wednesday, 24 March 2021 at 11:45 pm on ARTE.
