Short film of the month:
1917 – The Real October
Welcome to the monthly film series with short films and background stories from over 20 years of our production activity.
In the mid-1990s, filmmaker Peter Roloff had the privilege of being able to live together with friends in a grand mansion in Potsdam – close to the famous castle Sanssouci – In order to save the property from decay. THE VILLA is a poetic-associative condensate of this unique experience of life. At the same time the images and sounds also evoke personal memories of the audience.
THE VILLA toured worldwide and was invited to the Aix-en-Provence Short Film Festival in France three times on different occasions. For the first time, the film received a spontaneous award from the festival, a cuddly bear.
