mitte mitte bitte!

Hi, I'm Büke. A Berlin based fine artist and illustrator quite addicted to the cinematic arts. With my ongoing illustration series "Mitte Mitte Bitte!" (Center seat please!) I would like to lure everyone away from their couches into the cinema seats and share some of my passion for movies. And where do we want to sit?

Of course: Mitte Mitte bitte!.

 

 

An illustrated film review series, with a special focus on movies that are shown in the Yorck cinema group. The german title refers to my preferred seat as well as the place where I am living. The artworks reflect my visual impressions watching those films. Whatever makes me wonder, think, rethink, laugh, cry, go crazy. In short: What gets stuck in my head, gets a spot on this page. 

I'M SO EXCITED!

HERE WE GO.

Politely, respectfully but always forcefully; Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a true lady with a passion for equality: “Never in anger” and “Keep going” even if the odds are stacked against you. These two things I will always try to keep in mind

Tea with the Dames

Film by Roger Michell

Delphi Lux | Yorck Cinema Group

Hall 3 | May 2019

Although I was the only one in the movie theater under the age of 50, this

movie is not exclusively for the older ones among us. It's a film about friendship, the role of women in acting and generally the ups and downs of the actress profession. Dame Judi Dench, Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Eileen Atkins and Dame Joan Plowright, four legends of the British stage and screen, share their candid, delightfully irreverent thoughts on everything from art to aging to love to a life lived in the spotlight.

Green Book

Film by Peter Farrelly

Kant Kino | Yorck Cinema Group

Hall 5 | April 2019

“It takes courage to change people’s hearts.”

Green Book shows a charming risky road trip from New York to the Deep South (trough a land of racial clichés). A constant companion on the journey, the

Negro Motorist Green-Book. It listed businesses that served black travelers in the segregated South. The film Green Book recreates a time not too long ago when black people were being regularly dehumanised and devalued in ways that were upheld by the law and still serves a significant purpose to remind white audiences of the difficulties faced by those of colour.
