Movie: The Enforced Disappearance of Sombath Somphone

Sombath Somphone

2018, Ran Quinn, 52 Min., engl OF (deutsche Untertitel)

Vientiane, capital of Lao People's Republic, one of the last remaining communist states on earth. In December 2012, CCTV recordings of the kidnapping of a Laotian community activist by obviously state agents go virally around the world. The EU Parliament, US John Kerry and relatives react with shock and indignation, demanding answers. To this day, the government of Laos denies any participation.

At the pace of a who-done-it thriller, the film documents the life, time and harrowing video evidence of the alleged disappearance of one of Laos's most prominent citizens. Following the film, Shui-Meng Ng, Sombath Somphone's wife, will be present for a discussion. Born in Singapore, she worked for UNICEF in China, East Timor and Laos.

Organized by the Metropolis Kino Hamburg

Valentine Buttard, Piano - Benefit Concert for Palestine

Die Konzertpianistin Valentine Buttard

To be non-violent and peace-loving despite violence, is that possible? Namah & Eid from Palestine and Eyal from Israel connect the hope and the dream of a peaceful coexistence, which they will share with us again even if they do not come together this year.

Concert pianist Valentine Buttard (www.valentinebuttard.com) plays the grand piano in support of this peace work. She will play pieces by Johannes Brahms, Claude Debussy, Leoš Janáček and Philippe Hersant. In addition there is a vegan buffet of Manuela Peters (www.manuelapeters-berlin.de) and her catering "Götterspeisen - Essen mit allen Sinnen" as well as small Arabic delicacies.

Bassonor - drei Bässe und ein Schlagzeug

Noriko Okamoto - Kontrabass
Christopher Zabel - E-Bass, Kontrabass, Piccolo-Bass
Henry Mex - Kontrabass, E-Bass, Piccolo-Bass
Raphael Büttner – Schlagzeug

Bassisten agieren im Hintergrund, werden von vielen nur als Begleitmusiker angesehen, obwohl sie die Basis der Musik liefern. Was wenn sie genug von dieser Rolle haben? Ein Projekt gründen, in dem sie sich zum Frontmusiker erklären? So was wie bei Stanley Clarke oder Marcus Miller? Oder deren Bass-Battle-Trio mit Victor Wooten? Nein, das passt nicht zu ihrem bescheidenen Naturell. Eine andere Idee: Gleichgesinnte suchen, ein Ensemble aus Bassisten bilden, in dem man ständig die Rollen tauschen, Solist sein, mal hohe Töne, mal Akkorde wie ein Gitarrist oder Pianist spielen, aber auch einfach nur Bassist bleiben kann.
