made in germany

For the sixth time, exground filmfest is awarding DAS BRETT, with EUR 1,500 in prize money, for the best film in the Made in Germany series. Though the inmate jury is still not able to work due to Covid-19, the support association from exground filmfest, Wiesbadener Kinofestival e. V., has decided to organise the competition and sponsor the prize. As in 2020, the audience (this time in person) will choose the winning film. In the six fiction features of the competition, everything revolves around questions of existential importance: Will the family father in Benjamin Martins’ THE SHADOW HOUR be able to save his wife and step-daughter from a concentration camp? Can the collapse of a picture-perfect family be halted in Ronny Trocker’s HUMAN FACTORS? Can a father save his family from social ruin in Mia Maariel Meyer’s THE SEED? Or will a long-term marriage withstand adversity in Wendla Nölle’s QUIET FREEDOM? Can NICO (from Eline Gehring) fight her way back to a life worth living? Or can the kids in Dennis Stormer’s and Marisa Meier’s YOUTH TOPIA determine when they are officially grown up? Watch Mark Waschke, Dagmar Manzel, Rolf Lassgård, Wolfram Koch & Co. turn in great performances and see for yourself!
