The winner of the 5th Bremen´s Favourite Award is Insyriated

In the midst of war-torn Damascus a family has systematically barricaded their apartment to create a last remaining refuge. Oum Yazan lives here with her little son, her two teenage daughters and her father-in-law and desperately tries to keep up every day routines – not only for her family but also for her daughter’s boyfriend and the young neighbours. While gunshots ring out outside the windows of the mostly abandoned house, inside lunch is being prepared, the cupboards are dusted and homework is done.There are only two moments in which the camera dares to advance into the hallway. The family almost never leaves the apartment and their alleged sanctuary is progressively becoming a prison, in which every decision can have fatal consequences.

After his debut film Nach Wriezen, the audience favourite at Favourites Film Festival 2015, director Daniel Abma accompanies Malú, Odette and Juani, who longingly wait for their operation and encouners a country, which, just like the three protagonists of the film, faces a turning point.

We will open the 5th FFF Bremen on Wednesday, May 24th 2017 at 8.00 pm with the French fiction film D’une pierre deux coups / Our Mother, the debut of the French actress Fejria Deliba, who became famous with films such as La Riviere et la quatre (1989) by Jacques Rivette.

Our Mother tells a family story about eleven siblings who, for the first time, get to know their mother Zayane as a woman with a life of her own, when she unannounced to a journey into her past. In her native Algeria, Zayane had worked as a young maid in the colonial era – a time in her life that she never told her children about.

From 7.30 pm, all visitors and guests of the Festival opening are invited to a reception in the foyer of the new venue, the Cinema im Ostertor.
Tickets can now be reserved here.

More information on the film can be found here.
