Ein bisschen Realität


Ein bisschen Realität erzählt das Leben der
ehemals drogenabhängigen Mutter Julia und ihrem sechsjährigen Sohn Samuel.

Eine Beziehung, die geprägt ist vom täglichen Kampf Julias eine
heile Welt für ihren Sohn aufrechtzuerhalten.

Vom Traum einer intakten Familie getrieben ist ihr Zwiespalt zur Realität zu groß.

Je mehr Julia versucht ihr Leben selbstständig zu gestalten, umso mehr wird ihre Abhängigkeit sichtbar.

Ein bisschen Normalität

Lichter Filmfest:

„Eine gute Schauspielerin?“, fragt man sich in den ersten Sekunden und crhofft es in den nächsten.

Dann erkennt man das Genre und wehrt sich, doch es ist überwältigend intensiv, das bisschen Normalität von Julia und Samuel.“


Qalqiliyas Zoo

The only zoo in the Palestinian territories is situated in Qalqilya,
a city completely surrounded by the Israeli West Bank barrier.
Narrated by the veterinarian and taxidermist Dr. Sami Khader,
the documentary paints a vivid portrait of the precarious situation
of the zoo and life in the West Bank.


Michael Schaff graduated at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne (Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln). Now he is working as a freelance cinematographer doing commercials and documentaries.
