"FOURTEEN AND A HALF COLLISIONS" - a film about an unique sports team, unexpected friendships and a way back to life.
The film project VIERZEHNEINHALB accompanied the wheelchair basketball players of the BG Baskets for one year. Now the movie “Fourteen and a half Collisions” is ready.
Our TV documentary “VIERZEHNEINHALB – Basketball on Wheels” has been nominated for a special award at the Sport Movie & TV Festival in Milano, Italy. Prices and awards will be given in the middle of November and we will be there to represent the project and the sport pretty well. And maybe we can bring home a nice award.
We are completely stunned! Two awesome and emotional days are over. Such beautiful premieres!
On Sunday we celebrated the world premiere of FOURTEEN-AND-A-HALF COLLISIONS at the Filmfestival Hamburg at the Metropolis movie theater. All the protagonists, the crew and many friends, families and companions were with us. Director Guido Weihermüller introduced the audience with a touching speech.
All of you, and especially those who couldn’t be there, may find some great pictures of the world premiere on Facebook or in the slideshow right here.
Next day it got a little more laid-back but not less emotional and beautiful. At the sold out inclusive premiere of FOURTEEN-AND-A-HALF COLLISIONS at the accessable Schmidtchen on the Reeperbahn even more wheelchair users and AB’s could watch our movie and talk afterwards to the film makers, the protagonists and to each other. Small Fires played some great live music as well to complete a great night.
Who wants to join the good memories of Monday should check out the slideshow we edited for you.
The inclusive premiere was the kick-off for the initiative “VIERZEHNEINHALB FOR HAMBURG” hosted by the Evangelische Stiftung Alsterdorf. In this context and spirit FOURTEEN-AND-A-HALF COLLISIONS will be screened at accessable places in Hamburg first. In order to spread out to whole Germany and the world later. You may get the latest news and dates here at the web documentary.
Our longtime film composer Kian Djalili brought the German / British indie pop band from Hamburg on board for the soundtrack of “Vierzehneinhalb Kollisionen”. Small Fires then contributed several songs to the soundtrack. The title song “Collisions” was even written especially for the film
Small Fires: “The fates of the individual characters as well as the film’s claim to bring the viewer closer to a world with which we had so far little contact, give the film a depth and complexity that has made us curious.“
The band members Lars Dahlke and Ruben Seevers also contributed further compositions to the scenic film music.
