Cocoon / Kokon

Queer Kino presents

Fourteen-year-old Nora is spending the summer in the Berlin neighbourhood of Kreuzberg. She quietly observes the dramas of her peers, but she does not participate directly. She prefers sitting apart, shooting Instagram videos and living in her own world. But everything changes when she meets the free-spirited and charismatic Romy, a girl who turns her life upside down. Nora experiences her first love and broken heart. A girl starts growing into a woman; a butterfly emerges from the cocoon. There comes an unforgettable summer filled with sunshine as well as darkness. This tender yet dynamic coming-of-age film was directed by Leonie Krippendorff, whose work is closely bound not only to LGBTQ+ topics, but also to Berlin and its exceptional atmosphere.

The Q&A with Leonie Krippendorff will take place on 10th November 2020 at 6 pm. Watch the Mezipatra LIVE stream from the studio on our Facebook and Youtube.
