Cloud Whispers (Wer hat eigentlich die Liebe erfunden?)
WINNER OF THE 2019 BERLIN & BEYOND FILM FESTIVAL AUDIENCE AWARD FOR BEST NARRATIVE FEATURE PREMIERE
Remarks by Director/Screenwriter Kerstin Polte: “I am so honored and moved that our film won the audience award at this unique festival in the most colourful, diverse city in the world full of dreams and dreamers. I worked for 7 years on this film, but it was worth every minute, especially if you are rewarded with such great audience feedback – involving, participating and being touched. So I conclude from this fantastic experience that it is always worth it to challenge your destiny, to search for unfamiliar narrative paths and to live out courageously in the blue and green (a German proverb). Because this is what a good film – and our life – should be all about: to lose the fear of the unknown by just plunging into it.”
