System Crasher (15)

2nd March 2020 7:30 pm

 

PREVIEW PRIOR TO GENERAL RELEASE

Documentary-maker Nora Fingshcheidt’s controversial fiction feature debut portrays the life of a turbulent young girl who bucks the system.

Expelled from one foster home after another, wild 9-year old Benni has already become what child protection services call a “system crasher.” Too young to be held in treatment programmes and too violent to stay in group homes, her goal is to be back home with her mother who can’t cope with her either. Trying to find a permanent placement for Benni, Child Protection Services hires Micha, an anger management trainer and suddenly there is a seed of hope. With a blindingly engrossing performance from Helena Zengel as Benni, Fingscheidt’s meticulously researched narrative demonstrates that it may be the system that is ill-equipped to deal with cases too far outside their tightly defined norms.

Director: Nora Fingscheidt
