DCM is the distribution partner of PELIKANBLUT, the new film by director and screenwriter Katrin Gebbe (TORE TANZT), with which producer Verena Gräfe-Höft (Junafilm) will be present at this year’s Berlinale Co-Production Market. Nina Hoss (BARBARA) takes over the lead role in PELIKANBLUT. At the center of the story is the emotional and dramatic relationship between a mother and her new adopted daughter: a touching story in which Katrin Gebbe confronts the audience with despair, powerful emotions and conflicts, but also emotional boundaries. “Like in my film TORE DANCE, PELIKANBLUT is inspired by real life stories. For me it is important to use art to amplify the topic and to raise questions, “says Katrin Gebbe.
Wiebke Andresen, DCM’s Head of Acquisitions: “We are very pleased to be able to accompany PELIKANBLUT as a rental partner. For DCM, working with extraordinary talents such as Katrin Gebbe has a special status that we will continue to expand in the future. ” Verena Gräfe-Höft (Junafilm) is one of three German projects in the 17th Berlinale Co-production Market, PELIKANBLUT. Previous co-producers are SWR / ARTE, Miramarfilm (Bulgaria), Campfilm (Hungary) with the support of the FFHSH. DCM is expected to release the film in cinemas in Germany and Switzerland in 2019.
