VIOLENTLY HAPPY - EFM MARKET SCREENING @ Berlinale
Where? dffb cinema, Potsdamer Str. 2
When? Thursday 16th, 15:45
What do BDSM, dance and meditation have in common? Is the practice of violence in a controlled and friendly space an evolution in our civilization? VIOLENTLY HAPPY is a sensual and intimate experience, a film about a group of postmodern Berliners, looking for new ways of living, loving and experimenting with sexual fantasies. Felix Ruckert, dancer and choreographer, meets Mara Morgen, urban sustainability worker. Together with a group of like-minded people these reflective characters open the debate on experimenting with boundaries and projections - while dancing, meditating, at sex parties and in SM sessions.
Prepare for a sensual, romantic, postfeminist, full-frontal journey to a Berlin you have never seen before.
VIOLENTLY HAPPY premiered at Filmfest München. Further festivals include PÖFF Black Nights and DocPoint Helsinki. The film was nominated for the Michael Ballhaus Prize for Best Cinematography at the First Steps Award. ZORRO FIlmverleih has releaseed the film in German cinemas in January 2017.
