Find of the month:
The documentary WE NEED HOBBIES (54 Min., Germany 2004, written and directed by Matthias Luthardt) about hobby amateur filmmakers and their own programs for the local Public TV.
“This filmmaker found a fascinating story on his own doorstep. He also takes a compassionate approach to his subjects, he is full of respect for these everyday people in the suburbs. It is a well told story, funny, compassionate, and it is about TV. People making their own TV programs is really what documentary making is all about – telling their own stories.“ (Eric Gandini)
