About the film:
Germany/France/Denmark | German w/ English subtitles | 2019 | 80 minutes
In search of a place to sleep, the melancholy girl roams the big city. On the way she meets young mothers who celebrate their motherhood as a religious revival experience, finds shelter with an abstinent existentialist for whom sex is "just another market", and waits in a drag bar "for the end of capitalism". Her attempt to write a book fails because of the first sentence of the second chapter, and she finds no place between art galleries, yoga studios, and the beds of strange men. Instead of trying to fit in, the girl begins to see her depression as a political issue.
This film series is part of Queer as German Folk, a project celebrating the intersectional histories of Germany’s and America’s diverse LGBTIQ+ communities.
