new life into historical buildings turning them into top class. bots we begin with the ongoing battle between hollywood and streaming services netflix. have now infiltrated the oscars the golden globes or the like i think you have a more nominations for the big budget movies they've been making of course keeping people sofas rather than going out to the cinema all day is there room for everyone in this major part of the entertainment business. marriage story a great family drama by no one. and the irishman martin scorsese's 3 hour gangster epic starring robert deniro both films were hard to find in munich's movie theaters after their release nearly all the city's cinema operators refused to show them part of an ongoing battle in the film business.
and that's netflix has no respect for cinemas as places we don't take part in netflix releases because i don't want to be exploited by an internet company for internet content. christiane fire has run our house cinemas in munich for years he also lobbies on behalf of more than $300.00 cinema operators and they are angry they say netflix is breaking the golden rule that films are made 1st and foremost for the cinema and are shown exclusively on movie screens for at least 4 months after release and only then are they shown on t.v. or streaming services netflix puts its productions online 2 weeks after they're in theaters and many theater operators see that as an existential threat. but not all of them are taking part in the boycott a few munich cinemas are screening the netflix productions like the irishman although it had been available on netflix for 2 months back. time of this screening
many moviegoers deliberately chose to see it on the big screen. it's the same at the cinema run by. while his colleagues say they won't show netflix productions out of a love of cinema he shows them because he lives in an. apartment for from the beginning i intended to run the cinema the way i wanted to and to show films that i want to see on the big screen and that my audience wants to see i have lovely big screens in my theaters and then there's a film like the irishman which has images that work well and leave a strong impression when shown on a big screen i think it would be absurd not to show it in a movie theater so i can read from the furniture up sort. of exe newest cinema was recently chosen as the best in bavaria he says cinemas will survive not because it's the only way to see movies but because it's the best way to see that.
our colleague mark kruger joins me now we've seen the opinion differing opinions from 2 cinema owners but what about what about the people who make the movies where they're making movies for hollywood all the streaming services what do they think well i think they just think well great because that means more contracts new possibilities of course the streaming services make quick decisions they are willing to take risks and of course the filmmaker is left of course especially in germany there are very rich it structures and if a director wants to make a movie for example for a very young audience there are few rules and more possibilities and well even and hardy with the people are just following the money this is a good show even marty scorsese for example the only way to realise that i was from and what the corporation for that flakes hollywood wouldn't give him the money so he did he made the dia and on the other hand it was. very important thing that this
film was also shown in the cinemas because it said please please please don't look at it please because this is something the filmmakers also have to deal with and these streaming services seems i'm sort of you know huge budgets they seem to be unstoppable they are aggressively looking at new markets as well and they phoned one of course in india they trying to reach new consumers there in that country and there in india we see those pictures of people watching movies. on their phones which scorsese is so afraid of. markets with this 1400000000 population encounters film fans but there's also this great competition there already dozens of subscription subscription streaming services and in your soul netflix and amazon are offering more for less money than in the west so it should be very very golden age for entertainment in india and it's the fastest growing market right now
briefly don't like to mention it but i guess the coronavirus isn't helping cinemas right now the virus is making a very hard time for the cinema people are just staying at home watching netflix and not going into the cinemas because of the feel of affection. and even the james bond movies not very disappointed not very time to die so no time for james bones lots of problem with cultural events generally it must be said micah thanks very much. for moving on to an exhibition called beyond the black our i'm taking looks at how the movement of people back and forth across the atlantic in particular joining the torrent of the slave trade in the 18th and 19th centuries has influenced art and culture down the years in this case how it has shaped the work of the 4 contemporary artists exhibiting in the german city of. this. lation bathed in green lights is called nocturnal kinship and is by artist
sundra. i could start with talking about this variation for it was based on research for 60 elephants in kenya this elephants that they were following within the span of 3 years becoming like animals as a way to avoid poachers so as you can see with. sculptures you don't see their faces i'm using hoodies and that is also a way or transfer. this survivors or the threat that he is from this elephants to possibly a way of thinking of the human body. it's one of the works in the exhibition beyond the black atlantic at the concert for roy in hanover the show's title derives from an academic theory about the diversity of black culture and it's exchange of ideas
and influences across eras and national borders the concept centers on the peoples who were subjected to the atlantic slave trade trying to generational trauma that continues to influence artists to this day all of the works in the exhibition deal with racism in some way whether directly or indirectly the artists themselves are wary of being labeled as making black arts but at the same time identity is a topic that keeps arising for instance in the pictures of a lawless self from new york. striking karachi is a resting and challenging. game on part is my main subject i think partially mostly because of the body of which i have it so it's been it's been a way for me to speak very very fairly about and i don't i mean. i also used to be
i'm not a body on and off but the racialized be a body to kind of speak about larger humanistic concerns or accidental concerns. the object of our gaze looks back at us with self assurance. but the idea behind having the figure comprised of many parts is really meant to make our ones i did in the functions a reality so i imagine that the 1st person is an accumulation of various experiences very various moments and together all of those the different parts of themselves collapse into one body or even imagine the body as being a container that's so far whole so different experience as opposed to 5 years as i was concerned. the concept of an ambiguousness of fixed identities isn't only in the last room those are not the work by saundra. it's quiet shimmering and beautiful art that stands for itself but at the same time challenges for us to
reflect on their own way of looking at things. and our french interior design an architect who specializes in converting his star who buildings that were originally used for something else into hotels phillipe noir comes from a family of architects who are passionate about modern architecture and contemporary design after winning a prestigious architecture prize and welles 1st solo commission was to repurpose a paris hotel and he's never looked back since. the grand tale in the young john philip nowhere that has transformed an 18th century hospital building into a modern luxury hotel. the former hospital with its imposing dome is a unesco world heritage site the conversion had to be done with extreme care
contrasts play off the past and present can light the lamps we call old fashioned nurse's bonnets and traditional dion silk is juxtaposed with contemporary motifs and old medical books. on the pitch for a hospital bill it's. actually fairly deluxe and throughout the building you see a kind of contrast between rich and poor poor. john philip new era has he has office in a town near paris he specialized in redesigning hotels for over 30 years. when i design a hotel i imagine that i'm planning the 1st shots of a movie sometimes you're drawn into a film by the very 1st seems by the editing the music it's the same with the hotel that i try to introduce the guests to this atmosphere and they take on
a role in the film so to speak. one of his best known projects is the otel morley tour in western paris it was originally built as a swimming pool complex in 1029 in the art deco style after it closed down in the 1980 s. its walls became a canvas for graffiti artists when remodelling it john philip noel incorporated the building's colorful history into his concept. as with all my projects it ended up a blend of the various styles from different eras deco merges with street art. and it's quite interesting what surprises that creates. new air also designed the interior of the paris a 5 star hotel just sunk. in the 1930 s. it was a telecommunications building now it's a luxury boutique hotel. back in the latest job is done
for the mosque transformation. but one thing is certain the next historical building is already waiting to be awakened from its slumber. old swimming pool that he's transformed into a hotel more arts and culture stories on our website of course i have this show is there as well if you missed anything a want to see something again d.w. dot com slash soul for.
