News 23/​​06/​​2016 – ZEIT DER UNRUHE


Short Film | 2017 | Ger­many | 11 min­utes



It’s the 23rd of June 2016. In the UK, a crit­i­cal ref­er­en­dum is well under­way, and across the Atlantic, an omi­nous Amer­i­can pres­i­den­tial cam­paign is gath­er­ing force. In Swe­den, news broad­cast­ing is car­ry­ing on as usu­al. In Ger­many, how­ev­er, an iden­ti­cal, yet dis­tort­ed, news broad­cast is simul­ta­ne­ous­ly being con­struct­ed by the cit­i­zens them­selves. In the height of the Berlin sum­mer, the Zeit der Unruhe starts to unfold.

Direc­tors State­ment

“There are only a hand­ful of sto­ries that we film­mak­ers tell over and over again. There­fore, as a direc­tor, I am always on the look­out for oth­er forms to tell. For a long time, I want­ed to cre­ate a film that can be seen both for­ward and back­ward and only unfolds com­plete­ly when seen sev­er­al times. CHAOS is our attempt to under­stand time dif­fer­ent­ly and ques­tion its lin­ear­i­ty. My DOP, Lukas Eylandt, and I want­ed to shoot a genre film for a long time and saw this as an oppor­tu­ni­ty to decon­struct film gen­res, tell a bank rob­bery with­out ever see­ing it and mix fairy tales with gang­ster noir.” — Samuel Auer

Thir­teen- year-old LIA is in love with the four­teen year-old, per­fect, Adam and actu­al­ly there is no prob­lem at all. Adam is cute, super intel­lec­tu­al, sporty and is inter­est­ed only in her. Why, she does not know. Something’s very wrong with her, or at least she seems to think so. When Adams par­ents give the two tick­ets to their favorite opera and insist that Lias par­ents come along, trou­bles begin. Although love­ly and warm, Lias par­ents are ani­mals! Lia is con­vinced that Adam will sep­a­rate from her as soon as he finds out. And so Lia just rents new par­ents. They are per­fect just like Adam, or at least she seems to think so.
