RP Kahl's BEDWAYS at Berlinale / Oldenburg's guests at Berlinale & nominations for the German Film Critics Award



»BEDWAYS by RP Kahl at the Berlin Film Festival«

BEDWAYS by RP Kahl will premier as the closing film of the section “Perspektive Deutsches Kino” at the Berlin International Film Festival. RP Kahl (curator of the Oldenburg Film Festival) studies in his new feature love and its abstraction. He produced the film along with festival director Torsten Neumann and Christoph Thoke from Mogador Film. The leading roles are played by Miriam Mayat, Lana Cooper and Matthias Faust. Moreover, Laura Tonke, who was portrayed by Kahl in “Sunday Girls” in 2005, and festival pal Arno Frisch, who act in several festival trailers, could be seen in supporting roles.

Director Nina Bader wants to shoot a film about love and sex and invites her actor-friends Hans and Marie for screen tests for a couple of days. For Nina love is not necessarily a matter of emotion – she is rather looking for an authentic depiction of sex. The intimate collaboration turns into experiments with film, love and bodies and finally has an impact on the private relationships between the three of them. It seems that the boundaries between acting and reality begin to disappear.

SAVE THE DATE - The screening date is Feb 21, 2010, at CinemaxX 1, 8.30 pm.

The presentation at the festival is supported by nordmedia Fonds GmbH, film subsidy fond in Lower Saxony and Bremen.

Among others, Iris Berben is nominated for her leading role in “The Day Will Come”. The film is also represented by the editors Jens Klüber and Sven Kulik in the corresponding category. Furthermore, the opening film “Desert Flower” participates with its composer Martin Todsharov.
