Youth 4 German Cinema 2023 Winner: In a repressive three class-society, Paula, a simple Supporting Character, is about to face the most important test of her life: she has to prove she deserves to be a Lead. She is at the top of her class at the Main Character School – but so far has failed in generating great emotional music. In search of a solution, she finds herself in the abyss of the cinematic world, on the fringes of the storyline and lost amongst the Outtakes. The Ordinaries won two German Cinema New Talent Awards for Director and for Producer at the 2022 Munich International Film Festival, and the Children's and Youth Film Award of the Goethe-Institut at the 2022 International Film Festival for Children and Young Audience SCHLiNGEL.
Directed by Sophie Linnenbaum. Written by Sophie Linnenbaum and Michael Fetter Nathansky. Starring Fine Sendel, Jule Böwe, Henning Peker
