On Thursday, 01.09.2022, it's time to stay up! At 10:45 p.m., Chris Kraus' great opening film of the 50th Hof Film Festival DIE BLUMEN VON GESTERN will be broadcast on Bayerischer Rundfunk .

Holocaust researcher Totila Blumen (Lars Eidinger) struggles with the fact that the Auschwitz Congress he is preparing is being transformed into an advertising-financed media event. When the young French intern Zazie (Adèle Haenel) is put at his side, who overwhelms him with her rather unconventional nature, the chaos seems perfect.

Chris Kraus manages to combine dry and profound humor with a ludicrous plot. And as big as the comedy is. DIE BLUMEN VON GESTERN nevertheless takes his characters seriously and thus achieves its very own, unbiased view of the Nazi past.
