Germany | Maxim Gorki Theater, Berlin in Koproduktion mit dem Theater Basel

Der Kick | The Kick

In “The Kick”, film director Andres Veiel takes up the trace of the “Potzlow murder case”: in July of 2002, two brothers abused and killed a 16 year-old in Potzlow. The case was quick to be written off as an act of right-wing extremists. This production, invited to both the Berliner Theatertreffen and the Mülheimer Stückemarkt, combines conversations with the brothers themselves, their parents, friends of the victim, the state prosecutor and village residents into one powerful documentary about how we deal with strangers and the strange.
