NEXT TENANTS in Ophüls competition

After a long and adventurous production the period movie NEXT TENANTS is finally finished. Its premiere will be in the middle length film competition at the Max Ophüls.

This film deals with an important topic of the postwar era, which even today has lost nothing of its relevance to our society: the definition of home and integration.

We congratulate director Marc Metzger and the whole team and are really looking forward to the premiere.
