Kinescope and UCM.ONE Filmverleih invite you to the theatrical release tour of the film “Forces” (German original title: “Gewalten“), which starts today, Wednesday 10 May 2023, in Bremen. The production directed by Constantin Hatz will also be presented in Kiel and Hamburg on this tour.
The film “Forces“, which is marketed on the film label Artkeim², tells the moving story of 14-year-old Daniel, who grows up in an isolated village between violence and emotional coldness. After each of the premiere dates, guests will have the opportunity to talk to the film team.
In an isolated village, beyond time and geographical location, lives 14-year-old Daniel. The life of this gentle and tolerant boy, who only wants to please everyone, is marked by violence and emotional coldness. He sacrifices himself for his family, tries to please his violent older brother and devotedly cares for his terminally ill father, who longs for his own end but does not dare to end his life himself.
In the forest, Daniel meets Marcel, an outcast who has returned to the village after many years and ekes out a living by fighting dogs. The two are united by their receptivity to the comforting silence of the forest and an intense relationship with nature.
With a stoic expression, Daniel endures his dashed hopes as well as the humiliations of his emotionally stunted fellow men, as if he wants to avoid becoming just like them until the very end – even if that means surrendering to raw nature in the end.
The exact dates and venues are as follows:
“Forces” opens regularly in German cinemas on Thursday 11 May 2023, including Berlin, Cologne, Aachen and Munich.
