… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Germany's first major Anne Frank film premieres at Berlinale

The story of the young girl Anne Frank has been adapted for TV and the cinema many times. Surprisingly, there has never been a German adaptation for the big screen - until now.

Deutsche Welle, 17 February 2016

"Why do German filmmakers always leave it to the Americans to turn this story into a movie?" a big German daily asked regretfully when "The Diary of Anne Frank" premiered in German cinemas in 1959. George Steven's film adaptation of the now iconic diary seemed cheesy to audiences and critics alike. Another half-century had to go by for there to be a German Anne Frank production for the big screen.

The film premiered at this year's Berlinale in its traditional youth section "Generation." Director Hans Steinbichler's film simply titled "Das Tagebuch der Anne Frank" (The Diary of Anne Frank) will open in German cinemas at the beginning of March.

It's probably no coincidence that the production is screened to young Berlinale goers. Steinbichel sticks closely to the well-known plot and shows no sign of creatively reinterpreting Anne Frank's story. Overall, the film is well executed, easy to follow, features good acting and has its dramatic moments. It's probably best suited for school curriculums in Germany.

"The Diary of Anne Frank" is one the most important documents of German recent history. "We've always been astonished that no German adaption was ever made," said producers M. Walid Nakschbandi und Michael Souvignier before the premiere. "We thought it was high time someone produced it."

Fifteen-year-old German actor Lea van Acken takes on the role of Anne Frank. Her parents Edith and Otto Frank are played by Martina Gedeck and Ulrich Noethen, Anne's sister Margot by Stella Kunkat.

Moving into the rear house in Amsterdam: Anne Frank

Trapped in a secret apartment

Steinbichler's film tells the events in chronological order, starting with the Franks emigrating from Frankfurt to Amsterdam in 1934. After the Nazis occupied the Netherlands, the family goes into hiding in an apartment in the Prinsengracht 263. Over the course of two years they share the small living space with four other persecuted Jews. On her 13th birthday, Anne gets a diary in which she documents her life from that point onward.

Director Steinbichler and script writer Fred Breinersdorfer stuck closely to Anne's diary, consulted further notes by the Frank family and did extensive research, which is all reflected in their film. But they also placed their own emphasis on the story.

"For me, there were two very important approaches to the project," said Steinbichler. "Firstly, to absolutely tell it from Anne's point of view and, secondly, to transform the diary into actual speech."

Anne writes into her diary every day

Depicting a teenager's everyday anxieties

The diary was written by a "smart, but also very normal girl," Steinbichler added. It was important to him to "take Anne off that pedestal and make her appear less sacrosanct." The film achieves that goal by giving room to the inner workings of Anne's adolescent mind and her teenage antics.

Steinblicher doesn't reduce life in the hide-out to just the threatening Nazi scenario. "Anne isn't primarily the victim of Nazi crimes, after all. She's much more than that - a vivacious girl full of hopes and dreams," the producers added.

Anne Frank "was robbed of a normal everyday life," Steinbichler said.

The whole family is living in the hide-out on Prinsengracht

Anne Franks talks directly to the camera

The director's second approach of turning the diary's prose into actual speech is especially important for the film's opening. "I'm working with speeches in which Anne directly addresses the audience," said Steinbichler. "I'm using this element to address the question of who Anne really is."

The good thing about producing new adaptations of impactful historical documents like Anne Frank's diary is that the material reaches a new audience every time. Would young moviegoers today go see a black-and-white production dating back to the 1950s? Probably not.

Anne Frank in the year 2016

And there's another reason why this new adaptation might be a good idea. The film relates to the world as it is right now. On the hand, the script strictly adheres to historical events, while still leaving enough room for imagination and filling out the gaps.

"I wanted to bring Anne Frank into the here and now," said Steinbichler. "Of course the material is historical but that doesn't mean you have to put a dusty sepia brown filter on all of it. I think we're just a blink away from everything that happened back then."

The film therefore fits well with a wide number of historical productions in this year's 66th edition of tthe Berlinale that can also be understood as a running commentary on the world we are living in right now.
