LOVEMOBIL

Germany 2019 – Director: Elke Margarete Lehrenkrauss – Original language: Bulgarian, English, German – Subtitles: English

We are all humans – a moving and visually impressive ‘heimat’ film that gives sex workers a voice and reveals the seething abyss under the surface of the German provincial idyll, without losing its belief in humanity.

 

Note

On 22 March 2021, NDR, which co-produced LOVEMOBIL by Elke Lehrenkrauss, announced in a statement that the film contained "long parts of non-authentic scenes". It went on to say: "The central protagonists of the film are not who they claim to be." At the time of the screening, we did not have this information.
You can find a commentary by our festival director Daniel Sponsel on the "LOVEMOBIL case" in his article on Critic.de. Here he describes, among other things, why the question of authenticity in documentary film can lead to a dilemma, especially lately. To the article
