49 Problems (and my future is one)
How far should protest go if one’s way of life is threatened? 49 Problems (and my future is one) accompanies the protests against the construction of highway 49 through the Dannenröder forest and the trial against “Ella”. The activist, who wants to remain anonymous, has been accused of endangering a police officer during the eviction.
Filmmaker Maxi Buck and his camera are in the thick of the action, capturing the fight for the preservation of the forest in a poignant way.

The Director About the Film
“My movie about the A49, and the protests surrounding it, begins where other movies end. No movie tangibly deals with the issue of Ella. Ella was arrested during the protests in Dannenröder Forest because she was accused of kicking a special task force officer in the face, on a tree at a height of 15 meters. This story touched and moved me in a special way, and I soon decided that it would be the focus of my movie. Thus my movie ends when Ella’s trial ends.
