n Sunday, 26 August 2018 at 7 pm, we will be screening – according to the FAZ – “one of the most interesting and relevant films about this country”: the documentary DER MOTIVATIONSTRAINER (75 min), which accompanies one of Germany’s most successful and controversial motivational trainers, Jürgen Höller, over the course of a year on a seminar tour.
Trailer: » www.vimeo.com
What unfolds is a weird trip through Germany’s multipurpose halls – and a trip through a country obsessed with self-optimization.
The camera is there when Jürgen Höller teaches his participants mental techniques and has them repeat mantras like “I love myself” and “I attract money like a magnet”.
The world premiere took place during the Hof International Film Festival last year. On 4 September 2018 the film will have its television premiere to a broad audience on ARD. But before the first broadcast, the film will have an exclusive screening one more time at the Central Kino in Hof. Julian Amershi will talk about the controversial premiere in Hof in 2017, which took place in the presence of the protagonist Jürgen Höller, and report on everything that has happened with the film since then: its turbulent but successful path from an expert audience to Germany’s first broadcasting program. One thing is for sure: today HoF will show the film that everyone will be talking about tomorrow. We can expect an exciting cinema evening!
And what a better way to escape the heat than a motivated cool down in the cinema!
