A screening of a, a kid-friendly movie following Cleo’s journey to find a magic clock that can turn back time

Cleo has an almost magical connection to her hometown Berlin. Since childhood, she could see people and things from the city’s past that no one else could. But what she wants most of all is to turn back time to before her parents died. A treasure of mythical proportions—a magic clock—promises the solution. Together with her quirky but loveable buddies Paul, Zille, and Günni, Cleo sets off to find the clock, embarking on a quest that takes her all over Berlin, back in time, and deep into her own emotional world. Erik Schmitt’s debut feature is an artfully crafted cinematic fairytale that is a love song to both the city of Berlin and to the power of imagination.
