Highly Flammable

24. July 18:00h until 20:00h at Kino 2

Films which require a certain tact: precarious situations meet overburdened protagonists doing their best to make the best out of the mess, even as long-lost conflicts and hidden scars seem to make this impossible. Add to this ever-rigid bureaucracy with all its trials and stipulations, and once provisional solutions threaten to become permanent.
