Jeroen is a lanky 15-year-old who doesn’t know what to do with his energy. He has autism and is a challenge for his carers and his mother. If you tell him what to do and what not to do, he will do exactly the opposite. What will happen when he gets older? The directing duo, with their sensitive observation of Jeroen’s everyday life and surroundings, succeeds in creating a loving plea for life without ifs and buts. Daniel Sponsel


Also as part of the homage, a masterclass with Petra Lataster-Czisch and Peter Lataster will be held on Sunday 5 May. In conversation with the two filmmakers, Rebecca Zehr investigates their work. The masterclass will be held in German.
