Cinekino is a documentary series about the tremendous diversity of European cinema. In 10 episodes of 26 minutes, the authors Jean Ollé-Laprune and Rainer Rother present the richness and celebrate the particularity of a shimmering, bubbling and nuanced cinema.
For the 60 years of the Treaty of Rome, this series by Laurent Heynemann and Matthias Luthard emerges as a necessary reminder that our Europe is not only economic or financial. In the absence of political unity, it can (and must) claim a cultural identity.
This series works wonderfully, unveiling small and big story of a cinema that we finally know quite little.
Four episodes are in production: France, Germany, Italy and Belgium. Six other nations will follow this year.
