This year, in the section "Made in Germany" the audience will see the best German films of 2017-2018. The films, which have already got several awards at world film festivals, tell absolutely different stories. Be it a silent revolution started in the school of Germany in 1956, one of the last interviews of movie star Romy Schneider and three days spent with her in Quiberon, or the story of teenager Amelie, who believes that she will be free from asthma forever high there in the mountains.

The section "Made in Germany" is traditionally prepared by Goethe Institute of Georgia and Tbilisi International Film Festival. We also have to mention that with the huge support of Goethe Institute of Georgia we can offer 5 more German films: "Country Noise" by Lisa Miller (International Competition), "Mack the Knife": Brecht's Threepeny Film" by Joachim Lang and "Transit" by Christian Petzold in the section "Literature & Film" and Sergei Loznitsa's two movies "Donbass" and "Victory Day".

„3 Days in Quiberon" („3 Tage in Quiberon", Germany, Austria, France 2018)

On a retreat in the small village in France, Romy Schneider - the biggest female star in Europe of her time, gives her last interview to two journalists. Three days, driven by professional ambition and the urge for living.

„Mountain Miracle" („Amelie rennt", Germany, Italy 2017)

"Amelierennt" is a German film about a girl struggling with asthma, who is taken to a clinic in South Tyrol to be cured. After some time, she decides to get out of this hell (that's how she feels about it) and soon she'll meet a new friend. Together they try to reach the peak of a mountain where, according to an old custom, she can be healed.

"Different Kinds of Rain" ("1000 Arten, den regen zu beschreiben", Germany 2017)

The door has been closed for many weeks. A teenager has locked himself in - shutting out a helpless father, mother and sister. In Japan, the youths like him have already been given a name: the Hecticomorous (the secluded). The phenomenon is also beginning to spread throughout the Western world. The only thing a whole family can do is stand in front of the locked door and ask, beg, implore, throw tantrums, despair, accuse, ignore and hope. All the while, the door is becoming increasingly mirror of their own lives.

Isabel Prahl was born in Münster, Germany, in 1978. She studied graphic design in Hamburg and then literature, culture and media in Siegen. She directed several commercials, music videos and the short fiction film Ausreichend (2011). Different Kinds of Rain is her first feature film.


"In the Aisles" ("In den Gängen", Germany, Austria 2018)

Christian is new to the superstore. He mutely plunges into this unknown universe: the endless aisles, the eternal order of the warehouses, the surreal mechanisms of the forklift trucks. His colleague Bruno from the drinks department takes him under his wing, showing him all the tricks of the trade and soon becomes a fatherly friend. Marion from the confectionary department likes to have a bit of a laugh and a joke with Christian. When he falls in love with her, the entire warehouse is rooting for him. But Marion is married.

Thomas Stuber was born in Leipzig in 1981. He received a number of awards for his short film "We're fine" (2006) and for "Teenage Angst" (2008). His graduating film "Of Dogs and Horses" (2011) won the Student Oscar as well as the German Short Film Award.

"The Silent Revolution" ("Das schweigende Klassenzimmer", Germany 2018)

1956. During a visit to a cinema in West Berlin, East German high school pupils Theo and Kurt see disturbing newsreel footage of the uprising in Budapest. Back in Stalinstadt, one of the GDR's flagship workers' settlements, they have the idea of holding a minute's silence in class for the victims of the Hungarian struggle for freedom. Neither the boys, nor their parents, nor the school's administration are prepared for the minor and major reactions that their expression of solidarity unleashes.

Lars Kraume was born on February 24, 1973 in Chieri, Piedmont, Italy. He is a director and writer, known for The People vs. Fritz Bauer (2015), The Silent Revolution (2018) and Life Is Too Short to Dance with Ugly Women (1996).
