The summer in Kreuzberg in Berlin is unbearably hot, and the subjective temperature rises even higher for fourteen-year-old Nora, who goes to the city swimming pool with her friends and entertains herself by making videos for her Instagram. The reason is simple: she meets the enchanting and free-spirited Romy, and experiences an intense first love. This refreshing, authentically sensitive yet raw film about girls coming of age opened the prestigious Generation section at this year's Berlin IFF.

Leonie Krippendorff

She studied photography and film directing in her native Berlin. Her enchanting, cheeky and heavily feminine style characterizes already her debut Looping, which received one of the awards at Guadalajara IFF. Her second film Cocoon opened the prestigious Generation section at this year's Berlinale and confirms Leonie as a distinctive personality in the young generation of European female directors.
