Lasst die Alten sterben

by Juri Steinhart Special Screenings

Although Kevin is young and has everything he wants, he becomes increasingly sick of his cosy lifestyle vegetating between social media apps and the fitness studio. When he discovers that his father was part of the 80s movement, he realises what he has to do: embrace the revolution! Together with his buddy Manuel, Kevin sets up a commune. After throwing their smartphones against the wall in an initiation rite, the group now has to come up with a few slogans – not a particularly simple task when there’s nothing to revolt against and they realise that their parents are still the better revolutionaries. Juri Steinhart’s feature debut highlights the dissatisfaction of an entire generation, that appears lost in spite of seemingly having everything. Saturated black and white images see his characters set off on a quest for their own ideals.
