Spacious Density

22. April 17:00h until 19:00h at Thalia Kino | Saal 4

In closed interior spaces, underlying conflicts and the inner lives of the protagonists are explored and processed in an intense way. The themes of “spacious density” do not end within these confined walls, but extend mentally and emotionally far beyond them.

Nicht die 80er

A small encounter in the hallway turns Lucy’s life upside down. Suddenly Anton is standing there, and he is into Lucy, and Lucy is stumped.
