…to DARK DREAMERS by Philipp Klinger (German Premiere HoF 2020), which will be released in German cinemas on Thursday, 12 August 2021:
17-year-old Rebekka from a southern German village falls into a deep depression after her brother’s suicide. Only through the dead man’s best friend does she find a way to access her pain. But of all people, Rebekka's parents and the rest of the village have identified him as the culprit in her brother's death.
DARK DREAMERS is a coming-of-age drama with mystery elements, told in intoxicating images and sensitively acted. Definitely worth seeing (again) at the cinema.
And if you still want to take the chance, you should definitely see Sabine Derflinger's documentary JOHANNA DOHNAL – VISIONARY OF FEMINISM (German premiere HoF 2019). It’s the portrait of an indomitable woman: Johanna Dohnal. Almost single-handedly, she advanced equal rights in Austria in the 1980s and 1990s and was the first Minister for Women's Affairs from 1990.
“JOHANNA DOHNAL – VISIONARY OF FEMINISM shows how hard the path to greater justice can be, but how important it is to walk it stoically. That's the only way social change is possible. A very timely message." (Deutschlandfunk)
