Helden der Krise

A Film by Rebekka Kaufmann

Synopsis

WE OWN THE CRISIS.
In WE OWN THE CRISIS a Greek family from Athens is fighting for their existence. Mother Georgia works for little money six days a week, father Panagiotis doesn’t find a job for month and 18 year old daughter Vasiliki is struggeling with her school graduation. Seperately it seems they won’t make it, but together as a family, they stand together. The house is their only center of life and place of retreat: Here the family is cooking, celebrating with friends and searching for solutions. How tragic that even this place isn’t safe anymore. During the finance crisis the family became indebted and their flat was auctioned by the force of the Greek state like so many others. Nobody knows if the process of disappropriation will still be stopped by blockades and demonstrations anymore.

    Rebekka Kaufmann

    Rebekka Kaufmann was born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. From early on she liked to travel. During internships at Platura e.V. Berlin and the production company Mayalock she recognized her passion for film while working in different departments: from direction, script writing and camera to production. Because of her interest in filmmaking Rebekka applied at the German filmschool Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg in October 2011. Traveling is still an important topic, especially in her films: Her last projects led her on outer journeys to foreign countries, for example to Bangladesh, but also on inner journeys to sexuality, the humor of failure and depression. Rebekkas recent film „We own the crisis“ (AT) will unite both kind of journeys.
