People around the world are protesting for democratic freedom and human rights. But how does a protest actually become a revolution? In his film essay "The Naked King – 18 Fragments on Revolution", Andreas Hoessli asks this very question. Due to lockdown, the main prize winner from DOK.fest München will be released exclusively in the W-film Online Cinema at https://www.wfilm.de/en/the-naked-king/film-dvd-bluray-vod on 11 February. Just in time for the 42nd anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in Iran! For good cause: Locked cinemas that co-promote the online release will share in the proceeds. As soon as the lockdown ends, the film will also be shown in cinemas.
Due to the ongoing lockdown, W-film is postponing the DVD release of "Our Soil is Our Heritage" to 26 March 2021. The VoD release via streaming services such as Amazon remains on the 26 February 2021. Fans of dedicated films can also support our distribution company during the corona crisis directly by buying a DVD or VoD online via the W-film shop at shop.boden.wfilm.de. Since World Soil Day on 5 December 2020, it has been possible to rent "Our Soil is Our Heritage" exclusively as a stream.
