All about courage

Zeughauskino's month of films about courage may be just what you need to keep from hibernating from the cold.

With winter approaching and the thermometer dropping dangerously close to zero, even finding courage to leave the comfortably-heated apartment can be a mountain to climb. But if you do so, chances are Aktion Mensch’s ueber MUT festival will let you in a whole other world of courage. That might, for example, be by risking your life for a cause that you really believe in, like the Greenpeace activists on the Rainbow Warrior ship fighting against nuclear testing activities in the 1980s (Rainbow Warriors, November 6, 21:30 and November 13, 18:00). And maybe even more courageous is the Palestinian Ayed Morrar uniting Palestinian and Israeli people in a peaceful demonstration to save his hometown Budrus from the fatal consequences of the ‘separation barrier’ (Budrus, November 13, 21:00 and November 14, 18:00). So dig out the warm clothes from the bottom of your closet and make your way through the November cold.
