by Philipp Hirsch
Script: Philipp Hirsch, Thomas Böltken, DoP: Ralf Noack, Editor: Jan Ruschke, Production: Ostlicht Filmproduktion, Producers: Marcel Lenz, Guido Schwab, Cast: Matti Schmidt-Schaller, Tom Gronau, Milena Tscharntke
“Newcomers Matti Schmidt-Schaller, Tom Gronau, Milena Tscharntke, Matilda Merkel and Enno Trebs shine in the roles of the young drop-outs who long for absolute freedom. The script was written by director Philipp Hirsch together with Thomas Böltken. The result is young German cinema in top form and a road movie that captures the feeling of life of Generation Z in powerful and sensual images.” (Press booklet)
