What is money? What are debts? What are the consequences of both? And how can images be found for them? Layer by layer, Oeconomia reveals how the rules of the contemporary capitalist game systematically precondition growth, deficits, and concentrations of wealth. With praiseworthy shrewdness and rigor, director Carmen Losmann articulates in layman’s terms the more egregious aspects of capitalist economy rendered invisible by the prevalent media coverage. Her striking visual concept contrasts the glass transparency of financial institutions with their reflecting, glittering facades, which are almost completely inaccessible to outsiders.


KINO! Germany NOW! offers a handpicked selection of some of Germany’s most promising narrative, documentary, and short films that premiered within the last year. These 13 films by 14 up-and-coming directors from Germany, all with distinct backgrounds and unique approaches to filmmaking, offer a diverse and intriguing cross-section of current German cinema. KINO! Germany NOW! is a project of the German Film Office, an initiative of the Goethe-Institut and German Films, and is presented in partnership with the Goethe-Institut Los Angeles.
