Jonathan and Award Ceremony of LICHTER Filmpreise 2016
*Award Ceremony: 07:00 pm* *Film Screening: 08:00 pm* There are microcosms, seemingly secluded from the rest of the world with their own rules, their own secrets. Twenty-four-year-old *_Jonathan_* grows up in such a cosmos: his father Burghardt’s farm. Not a word is to be shared about the mother’s untimely death; just as little is allowed to be said about the father’s obscure past. All that does not make it easier for *_Jonathan_* to take care of the dying Burghardt. Solely from Anna the nurse can he derive solace and comfort. But when a friend of the father’s youth suddenly reappears, the past can no longer be repressed so that father and son have to face their history. *Piotr Lewandowski’s* sensitive coming-of-age drama has already received both the *Hessischer Filmpreis* as well as the *Emdener Filmpreis* for *Best Screenplay*. The impressive images originate, among others, in Birkenau-Reisen and Erbach-Haisterbach, Hesse. *Piotr Lewandowski* was born in Warsaw and studied at the *University of Art and Design*, Offenbach am Main, among other places. In cooperation with Carsten Strauch he brought into being the documentary *_Zwischen Erde und Licht_*, the comedy series *_Götter wie wir_*, which is nominated for the *Grimme Preis*, as well as the comedy film *_Die Aufschneider_* starring *Christoph Maria Herbst*.
