Berlin: Bonanza (SACRED: Homelands Festival 2016)

Photo by Kim Troubleyn

Friday 25 & Saturday 26 November. 8.45pm. The SACRED: Homelands programme contains adult themes and content which may be unsuitable for younger audiences.

Once upon a time there was a little town, the smallest in Colorado [USA], with five friendly houses and the Rocky Mountains lying at their feet. Snow covers the streets in wintertime, the Kerber Creek runs through the village and if you look long enough you can even see the elves.

Bonanza is a unique cinematic portrait of a desolate mining town. Once there were 6000 inhabitants catered for by 36 saloons, seven dance halls and an immense number of prostitutes.  Their motto was: get in, get rich, get out.

“A film construction that is perfectly synchronised yet still retains a loose feel. Berlin surveys the world via the city and the city via its inhabitants.”  
– De Morgen

Co-production: STUK (Leuven), KVS (Brussel) and Vooruit (Gent).
