Kokon

Directed by Leonie Krippendorff

Cast: Elina Vildanova, Jella Haase, Lena Klenke, Lena Urzendowsky

 Streaming September 25–28

Exploring fraught social dynamics between teenage girls, director Leonie Krippendorff delivers a sharp-eyed and authentic adolescent romance. In culturally mixed Berlin, shy fourteen-year-old Nora lives with her alcoholic mother but dotes on her older and cooler sister, Jule. When Nora very publicly gets her first period in front of Jule and her friends, only Romy offers sympathy and kindness. This film follows the blissful romance Romy and Nora plunge into, capturing the out-of-depth feelings churning within Nora as she experiences her first love. Set in the sweltering heat of the Berlin summertime, this film is a portrait of a transformative summer in one girl’s life.

Co-presented by B.BLYSS!, a women-led organization that curates LGBTQA and culturally diverse events and productions.
