On Thursday, September 12th 2019, the winner of the Hof Gold Prize, SWIMMING by Luzie Loose, will be released in German cinemas.
How far can friendship go when victims become perpetrators? A fatal cycle begins when Elisa and Anthea begin to shoot incriminating mobile phone videos of their classmates and distribute them anonymously. Relentlessly and authentically told, Luzie Loose captivates her viewers.
The film not only convinced the jury member of the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts, Edgar Reitz, who awarded Luzie Loose the Hof Gold Prize at the 52nd International Hof Film Festival, but also the audience. Go swimming with SWIMMING on September 12th in German cinemas – a very good decision.
