DCM will release the directorial debut of Bernadette Knoller, FERIEN, in German theaters on July 7, 2016.
Vivian Baumann (Bernadette Knoller) is exhausted. She is on track to become an established district attorney and to move in with her boyfriend, but her life just won’t go forward. Escaping to her mother’s couch isn’t an option either. Her father (Detlev Buck) sends her to an island to help her relax. Slowly, but steadily Vivian discovers the life on the island and makes friendship with its strange inhabitants.
FERIEN ist a co-production of Blikfilm GmbH, Filmuniversität Babelsberg Konrad Wolf, & Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg, part of the LEUCHTSTOFF series, with funding of Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and nordmedia Film- und Mediengesellschaft Niedersachsen/Bremen.
