Friedenshöhe

A Film by Josephine Ehlert

Synopsis

At 22, Aline had a first fling with Tobi. It would continue for six years. Whenever there
was time for love she visited him at the Friedenshöhe Hotel in picturesque Oberammergau. Then Aline met Markus and soon moved in with him. But Tobi and Oberammergau would still remain as her secret retreat. Now, after two years of not seeing each other, Aline feels drawn to her haven again. Without prior announcement she steps back into Tobi’s life, to a cold reception. Aline lures Tobi, hurt and bitter, back into the comfort zone they once shared. To make him come up with answers she had herself denied for so long.

    Josephine Ehlert

    Born and raised in Eastern Berlin, Josephine went to Vienna after high-school graduation to study Acting at the famous Vienna Conservatory. Since she was 13, she acted and also wrote screenplays. At first only for stage, but after moving to Munich and joining the ensemble of the federal theatre, she began to write screenplays for short films and produced them herself. Though she has been directing theatre plays since she was 16, FRIEDENSHÖHE is her first film directing work. Before that she wrote the screenplay to the award-winning 90-minutes movie "SCHATTENWALD", a german
    independent film, where she also played the main part herself. FRIEDENSHÖHE was selected to have its worldpremiere at the very famous Hofer Filmtage in October 2015.
