Approaching 30, Lola (Valerie Pachner) is a beautiful business consultant whose career seems on a fast track to success. She travels back and forth, from her tasteful apartment in Vienna to the headquarters of the latest corporation she’s restructuring. Her routine is one of late nights at the office, fancy client dinners and brief nights of sleep in sterile hotel rooms.
Lola manages her personal life with the same ruthless efficiency she uses to optimise profit margins. She keeps her relationship with her boss Elise secret – the same goes for the existence of her older sister Conny, who has a long history of mental illness. But when she receives the news that Conny has attempted suicide, her secrets threaten to explode into the open.
Selected to compete for the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival, The Ground Beneath My Feet stars Valerie Pachner in the lead role.
This film will be screened in partnership with the Austrian Embassy Singapore.
