Oscar Dream

The DFG-insured film "System Crasher" continues its international success tour. The directorial debut of Nora Fingscheidt, which is currently on a worldwide festival trip, was selected from seven films as a candidate for the Oscar category "Best Non-English Language Film". Another great success for the film, which has already won a Silver Bear at this year's Berlinale.

Hamburg, 22 August 2019   -   The main character of the film is the nine-year-old girl Bernadette (Helena Zengel) alias Benni. With her loud, unpredictable nature, she sooner or later pushes every caregiver to the limit and is pushed from one accommodation to the next.

In January 2020, the Oscar Academy will decide whether this German film will actually reach the finals of the last five non-English-speaking films. We wish you good luck!
