PREDICATE VALUABLE for Marc Boettcher's new film: "Belina - Music For Peace"
On the 15th anniversary of Belina's death (12.12.21) as well as on the 70th anniversary of the Goethe-Institut and on the anniversary of 1700 years of Jewish life in Germany.
"A richly detailed and superbly researched bow to a lifetime of musical achievement that must be saved from oblivion."
The Filmbewertungsstelle Wiesbaden unanimously awarded the Golden Seal of Approval on 04.03.2021 with the jury statement: "Marc Boettcher's documentary about the world music interpreter inevitably casts a spell. (...) The film does not approach the person and her work from the know-it-all point of view of a classic television feature, but with a certain discretion that rejects the boulevardesque approach with its squint for sensation and revelation. At the same time, one learns not only something about the person, but also something about the traces her life has left behind and the influence her work has had on others. Boettcher's film awakens new interest in an exciting time and a great figure whose life's attitude and work seem exemplary."
