Save the date! The gala premiere of the film Bliss (Glück) will take place in the Světozor cinema on Thursday, February 24, 2022 from 6 p.m. We will present this sensitive German drama by director Henrika Kull as the seventh distribution film of Queer Kino. The screening is English-friendly.
We were particularly impressed by how originally and unscrupulously it portrayed the work on brothels and the complex nature of the characters through the bold contrast of mechanical sex scenes and tender intimacy. The film about identity and determination dazzled the audience at Berlinale in 2021 as well as the audience of the 22nd Mezipatra. Now it's your turn.
Sascha‘s everyday routine of working in brothel changes when Maria joins the team. Mutual attraction flares, and a tender relationship blossoms between the two women, but their profession complicates it. Maria is partly able to distance herself from the work, but Sascha seems to succumb to emotional burnout. On top of that, as a divorced mother, she strives to preserve the relationship with her son, and cannot avoid the hard clash of the two worlds.
