Night Forest

Andre Hörmann & Katrin Milhahn

Germany, 2021 / 92 min / German OV (DE OV) / Adventure, family

With the presence of actor Marc Limpach at the Ciné Utopia screening

Two friends go on an adventure to find the missing father of one of them.

On the first day of summer vacation, they get away from home and look for a legendary cave high up in the mountain forests. Alone in the wilderness, the two experience an undreamt-of freedom and face great dangers and serious obstacles. The summer of their lives begins for both of them.

“NIGHT FOREST (…) is also about a search for identity (…) what’s important is passion for a dream and a belief that you can achieve anything. Way more important than conforming and being "normal". That is the message we want our heroes and our audience to take home with them.” – Director’s statement - Andre Hörmann
