Experiencing Interruptions?


His mother's upcoming funeral prompts Simon, a modest twenty-something, to invite his friends whom he hasn't seen in years. During their school days, this clique was inseparable, but then life pushed them in different directions: Lena and Tim are trying to reconcile their jobs as architect and teacher with the big question of family planning, Lars is an unsuccessful and sarcastic actor, Max is a successful lawyer who is having his first relationship experience, and Hannah, Simon's great love from school days, is in the middle of preparing her wedding. Soon, old secrets and new challenges arise and the clique has to navigate a alcohol-fueled night and learn what it means to live.

Director Biography - Johannes Buchholz

Johannes had his first contact with the medium of film as a child. Through the possibility to gain first shooting and editing experiences with a VHS camera, the fascination of the moving image was awakened in him. During his training in theatre he developed a more comprehensive view of stories and films. This was further encouraged by the production of the feature film "About Us, Time and Everything Else". Through the camera work and the subsequent year-long intensive post-production work on the student project, his sense of characters and narrative structures was further developed. After that, he also tried his hand at writing and directing a few short films. Today he works as the responsible light designer for the studio stage of the Theater Heilbronn.

Director Statement

The idea for the film is based on a well-known feeling: you haven't seen your good friends - due to different places of study, professions and life paths - for months or years, you meet them again and it seems as if no time has passed. But you realize that you are subconsciously reassuming old roles in the group, old patterns of behavior are resurfacing, and yet the relationship is less deep than it used to be. In this context, we want to deal with problems that people our age - mid-twenties - are dealing with: Family, job, money, future, death, friendship, time, love, dreams, wishes and desires.
