Premiere: DIE ZEIT VERGEHT WIE EIN BRÜLLENDER LÖWE

DIE ZEIT VERGEHT WIE EIN BRÜLLENDER LÖWE, 2013

Director Philipp Hartmann employs a kaleidoscopic approach to make time the subject of cinema. His film revolves around a filmmaker suffering from chronophobia at the statistical mid-point of his life. A way must now be found to slow down the passing of time so that he may be healed. "DIE ZEIT VERGEHT WIE EIN BRÜLLENDER LÖWE (Time Passes Like a Roaring Lion) – a claim made by the filmmaker's grandmother – is a highly enjoyable, instructive, fantastic and ultimately 'possible' film about the impossible." (Viennale 2013) In autumn, the film is touring through German cinemas before becoming part of the arsenal distribution range.  (stss) (29., screening attended by Philipp Hartmann, 30. & 31.10.)
