Without Kerosene To Berlin (Ohne Kerosin Nach Berlin)
Dir. Roy Fochtman, Moritz Böll, Maximilian Blaß
Logline: In a nationwide campaign by Students for Future in 2020, around 60 motivated people cycled from Cologne to the capital of Germany, Berlin. Their name: "Without Kerosene To Berlin" (Ohne Kerosin nach Berlin or OKNB). The film emerged from the movement and accompanies the activists up close in a 14-day-long demonstration. With the protest action, the OKNB movement wants to call for more mobilization for a more climate-friendly world!
Dir. Lucia Klein Svoboda
Logline: Anton is a successful actor who suffers from being a bohemian. When Anton’s drinking problem gets out of hand, he looses his work and his wife too. Anton covers up his failures towards his son, Tommy with a lie - Anton pretends that he is a secret space agent. In reality, Anton is cast out of the art world. Anton befriends a poet with a post office day job and a former ballet maestro who ended up as the owner of a junkyard. When Anton reaches the bottom, his friends help him to symbolically reform everything that has hurt him - with a huge demolition car. When the revengers chase with the police, they crash, and Anton falls into a coma and meets the creator… and since the Almighty is almighty, Anton might fly to space after all… several months later, when Anton wakes up from his coma he will be a victim of an “accidental” substitution with Dr. Melnikoff. Anton has to act the part and he is trapped in the middle of a Russian space program… He will become his son’s hero after all, and surely never drink again, as his rocket is now headed to start a colony at Mars.
