Portrait of a twelve-year-old boy who tries to offset his breadline existence by selling stolen skis. What appears on the surface to be a study of everyday life is in fact an exploration of the contradictions and hidden depths of an ostensibly prosperous world.

This ain't California, Director: Marten Persiel, Germany 2012, 90 min., Perspektive Deutsches Kino (Winner “Dialogue en perspective”)
The story of a bunch of kids who discover their love of ‘Rollbrettfahren’ as skateboarding was known in the GDR, on the socialist nation’s crumbling asphalt. A madcap, even unacceptable sport that was perhaps so incredibly exciting because of its nuttiness.

Unadorned histories of families, unemployed people, a pregnant girl, a mass sports protest by Berlin workers – grouped around a permanent camp-site in the countryside at Berlin’s Mueggelsee lake.
