Kinofest: Rocca Changes the World (Rocca Verändert die Welt)
Tue Nov 5: 6.00pm
(Katja Benrath, Germany, 2019, 100 min)
With never-ending optimism, Rocca and her friends prove that even children have the power to change the world.
Brave, funny, and one of a kind: thats Rocca. Rocca is eleven years old and lives a rather unique life. While her dad is watching over her as an astronaut from outer space, Rocca lives alone with her squirrel and is attending a normal school for the first time in her life. At school her carefree and non-conformist way of life instantly stands out. She fearlessly confronts the class bullies, because first and foremost Rocca stands up for justice. Thats why she makes friends with the homeless Caspar and tries to help him. All the while she is also attempting to win over her grandmothers heart.
This is the feature film debut by Katja Benrath, whose graduation project Watu Wote: All of Us won a Student Academy Award® last year and was then nominated for the Academy Award® as Best Live Action Short Film.
