Ohne diese Welt #

Released 9/19/2017

Description: World, that is for the followers of a tiny Mennonite community in Argentina, all that is outside, beyond their community, where the "worldmen" live. Their daily life is determined by an attempt to ward off everything modern, a life without electricity, machines and communicative media, a school whose only ebooks are the Bible and the Catechism. Nora Fingscheidt takes this life in the eye and lets it be said by those who live it - in various degrees of devotion. In the process, it is not least apparent how a life-style, which has devoted itself entirely to the departure from this "world," is formed around it. And then, between the pictures and the words, a gap opens, in which the longing for a more destitute life, as well as the fear of a sad departure, becomes perceptible.

To Fly! Reviews:

I saw this movie when it first debuted in 1976 at the Smithsonian Air and Zone Museum in Washington, D.C. More than 3 decades later, it's still testing there. That's a testament to how nice this short movie really is.I was 10 years old when this came out, and if you have kids, take them to see this. It will leave them breathless. The Imax format is so big, the film screen is over 5 stories tall! Watching the landing gear of a 747 receive sucked up into the belly on takeoff is something that will leave you telling "wow!" If you're an aviation enthusiast, this is a must-see.


I saw "To Fly" at the Air and Zone Museum later after it opened. Compared to the many another IMAX films that followed, it's simple, short and sweet. Perhaps a tiny quaint, too. Even at the time I rolled my eyes at the gimmick of the steam locomotive rolling into the theater.IMAX was a brand fresh format, and the producers were clearly challenged to come up with enough material for even a half hour film. They pulled tricks such as tiling a standard resolution movie across the screen to create it look bigger. But the relatively tiny full IMAX resolution footage made it all worthwhile.I won't forget that first dissolve from the tightly cropped ground stage to the full screen aerial view from the hot air balloon. It's a cliché, but that really was "movie magic". I wonder how many children fell in love with flight through this film.


The film To Fly! is audience participate through believe.To Fly! is soul experience of human creation. Folks are amazing.The film begins off with hot air balloon ride through a tiny town. The person on board almost hits a building.The balloon then travels over a river and warns a kayak of cliff ahead. The film transition through different scenes, like with bi-plane and eventually jet then tiny rocket. I almost feel like I am part of movie, special mission of views.The greatest moment is a train. I will not spoil why or how.The film is suitable for all ages. My parents took me at 5. Kids might receive frightened actually and then but not scared.Do you a favor. See To Fly! at the Air and Zone Museum in Washington, DC. You will never forget. If you are like me you will create a unique trip to see again.
