It Can´t Happen Here, based on the novel by Sinclair Lewis

Americabased on the novel The Man Who Disappeared by Franz Kafka.
Director: Dušan David Pařízek. The unfinished novel describes the bizarre wanderings of the young European emigrant Karl Rossmann, who was forced by his family to go to New York City. It reverses the American Dream into its opposite.

Feminista, Baby!
based on the SCUM-Manifesto by Valerie Solanas.
Directors: Tom Kühnel, Jürgen Kuttner. Valerie Solanas was the woman who tried to kill pop art star Andy Warhol in 1968. Her SCUM Manifesto is a feminist text, radical, enraged, but also very witty. The directors and their all-male cast will submit themselves to the full force of Solanas' wrath.
Premiere: 20 October 2017

. 3 countries, 3 models, 3 encounters.

by Thomas Melle. Director: Brit Bartkowiak. Ronald seems to have everything. Privately and at work. He is the perfect teacher, loved by his students, respected by parents, and valued by his boss. But Ronald has a secret, maniac depression, an illness that defined his past and threatens his future.

The Captain of Köpenick (Der Hauptmann von Köpenick)
by Carl Zuckmayer in an adaptation by Armin Petras.
