2001 :: Before Keira was Keira

A year before her breakout role in »Bend It Like Beckham« launched her to international stardom, the 18 year-old actress came to Oldenburg to present the German Premiere of 2010s »The Hole«.  Travelling for the first time unaccompanied by a parent, the young starlet immediately engaged both audiences & critics.  Five years later, Keira Knightley would be nominated for her first Oscar.

»So beeindruckend wie das Programm war das Festival selbst, dass unter der inspirierenden Leitung von Torsten Neumann intelligentes und leidenschaftliches Kino mit einer entspannten und weltoffenen Atmosphäre verbindet.«
