A thick and marvelously shot film, on homophobia and machismo, with a unexpected brutal honesty at its core.
American Independents in Berlin is an initiative organized by the EFM, the Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) and Sundance Institute. The screening series “IFP Selects” and “Sundance at EFM” showcase the best in new US indies to over 1,500 international buyers. The dedicated lounge on the second floor of the Martin-Gropius-Bau gives independent filmmakers a place to meet and promote their projects. In addition to the regular market screenings, the EFM is proud to present a new programme of high-quality television series at the Market on Monday and Tuesday, February 9 and 10. With a focus on Europe, these market screenings will highlight series from Germany, Scandinavia and the UK as well as North America and trends from around the world.
