VIER WÄNDE (FOUR WALLS)
Berlin, 21 April 2020
During times of Social Distancing, I encounter the unpredictable in memory rather than in public space.
Nicolas Wackerbarth, born in 1973, is a filmmaker, author and editor of the Film Magazine REVOLVER. After his studies at DFFB (German Film- and Television Academy Berlin), he directed several feature films like the highly acclaimed by both critics and audience CASTING (2017, Berlinale Forum / Opening Film BAFICI). Like his other films HALBSCHATTEN (2013, Berlinale Forum), UNTEN MITTE KINN (2011, Filmfest Munich) and HALBE STUNDEN (short film, 2007, Int. Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen / Festival de Cannes), it was shown at festivals all around the world (e.g. Viennale, FID Marseille, Midnight Sun Film Festival, BFI London). Nicolas Wackerbarth teaches at art and film schools (HFBK Hamburg, HFF Munich, DFFB Berlin, School of New Cinema St. Petersburg). He publishes texts about film and regularly hosts film talks (called REVOLVER LIVE!) at the Volksbühne Berlin.
