The new film by Tim Lienhard “Character One: Susan“, which Darling Berlin will be releasing next year (2019), will be screened by achtung berlin this year.

The documentary is about Susan. Susan is in her early 50s and a very attractive woman. The half-Italian, born in the early sixties in Berlin, tells her life. That stopped, as she says at age 11 already. Because she was sexually abused. Despite good school performance and the attempt to take a bourgeois profession, she never led an ordinary life.

As the queen of the Berlin techno clubs of the 1990s, as a dealer and globetrotter, she still defends her independence today. The film gives Susan a stage, stages her as a film diva, and combines her fascinating screen presence with her relentless openness into an opulent, rousing performance. Portrait of a woman.
