Mein Bruder kann tanzen

Somewhere over the past several years, she lost her brother. With a joint film project, the director Felicitas Sonvilla hopes to win him back. On the road trip to the sites of their childhood, the camera is always there. The siblings are radically honest and ruthless in dealing intimately with their conflicts, ideas, and difficulties. Two hard-heads. What exactly was the problem again? (Diagonale '19)
