Filmfest Hamburg is a festival for the public. Every year in the autumn, it attracts more than 40,000 movie lovers in ten days on eleven screens with about 140 national and international feature and documentary films. Filmfest Hamburg presents the first productions of young German and international film makers as well as the films of major directors. Oscar-winning actors such as Clint Eastwood, Jodie Foster, Christoph Waltz and Tilda Swinton, as well as German directors such as Wim Wenders, Fatih Akin, Andreas Dresen and Tom Tykwer form the entire artistic diversity of the festival.
With the spectacular panorama of the holy mountain Suleiman-Too, the first Kirghiz #UNESCO world heritage site, as a backdrop, director Elizaveta Stishova tells a love story between tradition and awakening.
