Following its nationwide cinema release on 25 June shortly after the Corona lockdown, "The Birthday" will be available in stores from 18 December as a DVD and via Video on Demand. Director Carlos Morelli uses captivating black and white images to stage a seemingly everyday family situation. But "The Birthday" contains everything you'd least expect from a child's birthday: storms, quarrels and long faces. After his feature film debut "Mi Mundial", Morelli delivers an original film noir about a part-time father who realises overnight what is really important to him. The film location Halle an der Saale also provides wonderful backdrops for the atmospheric retro look.
The renowned documentary film director Petra Seeger presents her first feature film "Vatersland" in the competition at the Biberacher Filmfestspiele 2020, with leading actors Stella Holzapfel, Bernhard Schütz and Matti Schmidt-Schaller in the cast. Petra Seeger was internationally successful with her documentary film "In Search of Memory" about Nobel Prize winner Eric Kandel. In her feature film "Vatersland" she deals with her own past as an adolescent girl in a post-war society dominated by men. Perceptive, feminist and at the same time incredibly entertaining! Nationwide release is in spring 2021.
