With a convivial champagne reception, a mysterious performance by the bard Somnambuhl, a friendly greeting from the mayor Gertrud Maltz-Schwarzfischer and a fast-paced hunt through the Parisian suburbs, HEIMSPIEL IM TRANSIT has finally begun. Not only the opening film Les Misérables (to be seen again at the rerun on Tuesday) thrilled the audience, but also the following concert of the post-rockers of Containerhead created a great atmosphere. Afterwards the party continued in the cinema pub under the clarified supervision of the sound magician Mr. Mojo. A successful start and a foretaste of an intensive festival week with inspiring films and fascinating discussions. Thanks to Christoph Gabler for the pictures!
