Ulrich Köhler’s Cannes-premiering In My Room is an atmospheric piece of modern German cinema in which a layabout cameraman finds himself totally alone on the planet after a mysterious apocalyptic event.
Armin (Hans Löw) is living a dishevelled and discontented life in Berlin when he returns to his small hometown to visit his father and ailing grandmother. His daily malaise now punctuated by petty arguments, Armin wakes one morning to find the township deserted without explanation, an apocalyptic event that forces him to begin a new life on his own in an empty world. Both a Robinson Crusoe-esque survivalist tale and a biting social commentary, In My Room is a film like no other.
Screens with 15 minute short-film 'Mouse', directed by Lani-rain Feltham.
