The monthly Goethe Pop Up Film Series GERMAN CINEMA NOW!, curated by Jasmin Krakenberg, supports artistic works that amplify a plurality of voices and experiences to inspire public dialogue.

About the film:
Aynur is a young woman who knows exactly how she wants to live her life. One day, she is shot dead by her brother on a busy street in Berlin. What led to this deed?

The film is based on the story of Hatun Aynur Sürücü, a 23-year-old German of Turkish-Kurdish descent, whose murder in 2005 shocked Germany and inspired fellow German filmmaker Feo Aladags feature When We Leave (2010). A Regular Woman takes a compelling new approach to the contentious case. By allowing the murdered woman to narrate the action both before and after her death, the film restores the victims voice.

In the film, Aynur is telling her own story, her perspective of what happened. It is the story of a woman who loves life. It is also the story of a woman who escapes the violence of her marriage and refuses to let her brothers and parents dictate what she can and cannot do. Although she knows that her behavior goes against her familys tradition and it can put her in danger, her desire for freedom is stronger. However, her brothers insults and threats get increasingly serious and before long, it is ultimately too late.

About the filmmaker:
Originally, German-American writer and director Sherry Hormann hails from Kingston, New York. For her directing debut Silent Shadow (1991), she won numerous awards, including the prestigious Bavarian Film Award and the Max Ophüls Silver Award. After working on several comedies, Hormann went to Africa to undertake extensive research on Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Based on Waris Diries bestseller, she then wrote the screenplay and directed Desert Flower (2009), a highly acclaimed film that changed the public view on FGM sustainability. Her last feature, 3096 Days, is based on the story of Natascha Kampusch, a ten-year-old girl from Vienna who was kidnapped and held captive for eight years. A Regular Woman is Hormanns ninth feature.
