...by director Nicolai Tegeler (54th Hof International Film Festival). Thursday, 30 September 2021 TO THE STARS opens in theaters in Germany: Decades after the fall of the Wall, pop singer Marco Hoffmann has reached the peak of his popularity. Then the former lead singer of the GDR rock combo DIE KOSMONAUTEN is suddenly accused by his former bandmate Volker Hinze of being the “IM singer” who betrayed him to the Stasi back then. The conspiratorial meeting of the former “blood brothers” turns into a life and death confrontation.
What did the change of system do to people? For some it is an opportunity, for others it is the end. TO THE STARS starts as a buddy movie and gradually develops into a tense psychological game with an uncertain outcome.
