Urlaub in Deutschland

Germany. The year is 2020. The sun is shining, the holidays are luring us and people desire to go back to their freedoms. But this summer is different: most countries have travelling restrictions and flights are being cancelled last minute. What remains is to spend your holidays on the balcony, or – more decadently – to take a small trip to the North Sea, that is to say the German seaside of course. Is this what local means in the future? Should we see this crisis as a chance for more sustainable holidays? Is Germany the new Bali?

It’s time to rethink the meaning of holidays.

Wunderbaum (NL) and Theaterhaus Jena (DE) proudly present Urlaub in Deutschland, a film in five parts about holidays in times of corona. A slow movie about dreaming of the past, about hot summer days, and about the remarkable palace of mirrors in which we suddenly have found ourselves this year.

Among others, with Walter Bart, Matijs Jansen, Stacyian Jackson, Elsie de Brauw, Johan Simons and Thomas Thieme (Das leben der Anderen), in collaboration with actors and filmmakers from France, China, Spain and Hungary, and under artistic direction of artist and filmmaker Florian Schaumberger (DE, 1988).

Urlaub in Deutschland screened early in 2021 in different theaters, with tasty German snacks, as a binge watching event. Featuring a live introduction by Wunderbaum makers Walter Bart and Matijs Jansen.
