West / Berlin & Beyond 2014
PLENTY OF TICKETS still available NOW at the Castro Theatre's box office. CASH ONLY please.


Based on the novel by Julia Franck: Two suitcases, a schoolbag, a cuddly toy  that's all Nelly Senff and her son Alexej take with them to start their new life. A Volkswagen stops in front of their house in East Berlin. Nelly is nervous. The year is 1978, it's summer, three years after the death of Wassilij, Nelly's boyfriend and Alexej's father, who died in a car accident in Russia. For a fresh start, they head for the West. The first place of refuge is a cramped emergency camp in West Berlin. While there, the past catches up with Nelly: The western secret services are asking for Wassilij. The trauma of the past could destroy the future she had in mind for her and her son.
