Lost in the Living

by Robert Manson

Following a young man, Oisín (Tadhg Murphy), who travels to the city with his band, buzzing with the potential of a tour and escape from his troubled family life. Oisín meets Sabine (Aylin Tezel), a pretty young Berliner, who shows him the secret places that belong to the city. The band lose patience with him and move on and he decides to stay.

But this time of simple pleasures is based on illusions. Oisín’s willful escapism is thrown into a tailspin when Sabine reveals that she has a boyfriend and must return to her real life. Things take an even darker turn when bad news from Ireland reaches him. He’s lonely, homesick and broke. Distraught, he makes his way through the streets of Berlin and begins sleeping rough. His path becomes one of determined self destruction. It takes an act of great intervention to save him from the void.

Rückenwind von vorn | Away You Go

by Philipp Eichholtz

They say it’s easy to grow up but hard to be a grown-up. Berliner Charlie is certainly finding it damn hard differentiating between her own expectations and those of the people around her. Her boyfriend Marco wants to have a baby and, without being asked, her colleague Gerry offers up his own opinion: ‘What? You’ve been together for five years? Then there’ll soon be three of you!’ But Charlie’s not sure if it would be nice to have a child or whether it would mean she’d just lose sight of herself. Her job as a teacher is often pretty demanding, her beloved, fun-loving grandmother has fallen ill and things aren’t going too well with Marco who often seems to bore her. If only she could reclaim just a little of the old excitement of the time when she’d dance the night away. Others seem to find being a grown-up a lot easier. Gerry decides to buy himself a motor caravan and head for the Balkans, and her best friend sets off on a backpacking tour of Asia.

Why is everything changing for those around her and why is she the only one for whom life appears to be at a standstill? What Charlie needs is a breath of fresh air.

Königin von Niendorf | Queen of Niendorf

by Joya Thome

In Brandenburg the summer holidays have just begun, but this year ten-year-old Lea (Lisa Moell) isn’t going to summer camp with her friends, as usual. She finds herself increasingly estranged from the girls in her school. And so Lea spends her days mostly alone, riding her bike through the village and visiting the musician and nonconformist Mark (Mex Schlüpfer), who lives on a wild farm. One day, however, Lea observes five boys hauling a large oil drum over the fence of a paint factory, racing away with their loot on a bicycle trailer.

Lea’s curiosity is aroused. At the next opportunity she follows the boys and discovers that they have built a raft on a small lake. But the raft is the property of the gang and girls are not allowed under any circumstances! Lea wants to be included in the gang and agrees to a dare. From then on the summer seems to be full of adventures…

Rakete Perelman | Rocket Perelman

by Oliver Alaluukas

How do we want to live together? In the middle of Brandenburg’s nowhere between green meadows, techno and theater ten people answer this question in their own way. In the artists’ colony Rocket Perelman they live their version of freedom and independence – each for themselves and all together.

New in the rocket is Jen. In her mid-twenties she’s out of the city, out of the industry and into a new life. But the rocket needs money and the solution, how could it be otherwise, is in the art, more precisely in a theater production. Jen also gets the lead role in a play that slowly surpasses reality and at some point puts the idealism of the whole community to the test.

Mann im Spagat: Pace, Cowboy, Pace

by Timo Jacobs

For the World Breath Agency Cowboy eagerly tries to clean the breath of the world with homemade bed-chains and levitated water. Well, that should not be a problem in Kreuzberg, the district for star singers. After all, Cowboy has the help of his senior interns. But here, too, the times are changing. Cowboy has to watch the greasy Tschick McQueen and his busy partner Angel open a car courier across the street. Cowboy has to do something about those dirty slings. He plans to build a bike courier service and organize a rally right at the beginning.

But Cowboy’s mission has another reason. Cowboy does not want his mother to end up as a guinea pig in a dull and even dangerous retirement home. His mother is to go to Sohosavoyritz, the invigorating retirement home for BestAgerGutverdiener. There even Elvis is dancing as a laser projection. But cowboy needs money for that; best that of the courier company. As the world’s air center in the shape of the attractive and intelligent Fey van Schweeden sends a representative, Cowboys planning picks up speed. Fey supports cowboy where she can. For this it demands transcendental rethinking. Scattered between his burgeoning love for Fey, the appeal of Angel and his neat penchant for chaos, the rally becomes a race against time. Soon his mother should be taken away from him and these courier drivers really do not do what they should actually: cycling.

Tschick and Angel have cowboy meanwhile rushed the devil from Hermannplatz on the neck. But that’s laughable compared to the huge thundercloud hovering above him, and Cowboy’s ability to trick himself out of the game.
