we come in peace
2013, Deutschland, English, 15min44, English text
Humans of the planet earth, for many rotations we have watched you from afar and now we have come. The wheel of life turns for all of us but we have learned to turn with it. You destroy and rebuild, conquer and rule, succeed and continue, fail and weep. We have come to end this cycle and replace it with new ones, we have come, all over your planet.

Kumbia Queers: More Lauder bitte!
Natalia Sanhueza, Almut Wetzstein
2013, Deutschland, Spanisch/Deutsche/englisch with german Subtitles, 46 min.
latinamerican musicians touring through Germany in 2011. The sound of the Kumbia Queers has its source in a mix of rock, pop, punk and cumbia with a shade of queer. In their European Tour they present their reinterpretation of Cumbia, a musical style, which is known as chauvinistic and misogynistic in its lyrics and aesthetics. Ali, Pilar, Flor, Pat, Inés and Juana are not afraid to turn towards dancing rythms in spite of their punk roots. Nevertheless the Cumbia they propose is strongly influenced by their past. Their political, musical, cultural ideas, their D.i.Y-style and the recent argentinian history have still an effect on the content of their lyrics, their performance and their way of life. Through them we learn how to survive by making music in Argentina and México and how there is perceived the Queer and danceable way of being Punk.
Der 45-minütige Dokumentarfilm ‚Kumbia Queers: More lauder bitte! zeigt die sechs lateinamerikanischen Musikerinnen während ihrer Europa-Tour in Deutschland im Jahr 2011. Der Sound der Kumbia Queers entspringt aus einer Mischung aus Rock, Pop, Punk und Cumbia mit einer Nuance von Queer. Auf ihrer Europatour präsentieren sie ihre Reinterpretation von Cumbia, eine Musikrichtung die als machistisch und frauenfeindlich bekannt ist. Ali, Pilar, Flor, Pat, Inés und Juana fürchten sich nicht vor diesem tanzbaren Rhythmus obwohl ihr Ursprung im Punk liegt. Doch der Cumbia den sie auffahren ist stark beeinflusst von ihrer Vergangenheit. Ihre politischen, musikalischen und kulturellen Ideen, ihr D.i.Y.-Stil und die jüngste argentinische Geschichte hat Einfluss auf den Inhalt ihrer Songtexte, ihrer Performance und ihren Lebenstil. Durch sie erfahren wir, wie es möglich ist durch Musik in Argentinien und Mexiko zu überleben und wie dort Queer und die tanzbare Art Punk zu sein, wahrgenommen wird.

History of the first self organizated trans* men group in Turkey.
In Voltrans, trans men share their stories and experiences of being transgender in Turkey, shedding light on complex questions and opening up new spaces for further discussion. An organization for solidarity among trans men, Voltrans has a special place in Turkey’s LGBT movement, not only because trans men are less visible than other LGBT individuals, but also there is something inherently confusing and uncomfortable about saying “I am a man” in a movement that stands opposite to patriarchy. But it’s good to be confused sometimes, and it’s this initial confusion that trans men share with the audience in Voltrans. Both a documentary and a project of oral history, the film goes a long way in opening up new spaces regarding gender, sexuality and sexual identity. The stories of Aligül, Sinan, Kanno and others are not just of interest to the LGBT community. Their struggle to create and choose an identity in spite of government and social oppression will be eye-opening and inspiring to anyone with an inquiring mind.

In Voltrans teilen Trans*männer ihre Geschichten und Erfahrungen zu Transsein in der Türkei, bringen Licht auf komplexe Fragen und kreieren neue Räume für weiterführende Diskussionen. Als eine Organisation für die Solidarität unter Trans*männern hat Voltrans eine besondere Position in der türkischen LGBT Bewegung, nicht nur weil Trans*männer weniger sichtbar sind als andere LGBT Personen, sonder auch weil etwas zutiefst verwirrendes und unbequemes darin liegt zu sagen “Ich bin ein Mann” in einer Bewegung, welche sich dem Patriarchat entgegensetzt. Aber manchmal ist es gut verwirrt zu sein und es ist genau diese Verwirrung, welche die Trans*männer mit dem Publikum von Voltrans teilen. Als Dokumentation und als Projekt mündlicher Geschichte, geht dieser Film einen langen Weg darin neue Räume um Gender, Sexualität und Identität zu eröffnen. Die Geschichten von Aligül, Sinan, Kanno und anderen sind nicht nur wichtig für die LGBT Community. Ihr Ringen darum eine Identität zu wählen und kreieren trotz staatlicher und sozialer Unterdrückung wird die Augen all jener öffnen welche einen neugierigen Geist haben.

This is the first film of Ula and Özge. One of the main characters Ali was fighting cancer and past away before the film was finalized.
“Having sprung up in 2012 from the wish of trans men that get organized under Voltrans to document their own histories, the documentary project gained momentum when Ali (Aligül) was taken to hospital in 2013 and aimed at the selection of important turning points throughout the history of the movement. Upon watching the 90 minute version of the film together in the hospital one day, Ali (Aligül) turned to us and said: ‘I won’t watch the ultimate version – it shall be a suprise for me.’ Even if he didn’t have the chance to see it, we know that Ali is always with us…’’
