Drama: Jonas Bak, Germany, France, Hong Kong, 2021, 73m, Scottish Premiere

As Anke enters retirement, a mother leaves behind her solitary life in rural Germany and memories of a once perfect family life and travels to protest-ridden Hong Kong, a place that has kept her son away from her for many years. Through her travels and casual exchanges with strangers Anke begins to settle into a new chapter of her life.

Jonas Bak’s first feature is an atmospheric feat that perfectly encapsulates isolation and loneliness while leaving space for exploration and hopefulness.

This screening takes place in partnership with Goethe Institute and includes an in-person Q&A with director Jonas Bak and producer Charlotte Lelong. It takes place during Mental Health Awareness Week, from 9-15 May, which this year explores the theme of Loneliness.
