When the place of refuge becomes the incubator of revolution…
The international film community looks to Berlin for the Berlinale 2018. Most interesting however is not the main stage, but the ladies’ bathroom, where, in the shadow of the glamorous events outside, Anna-Marie parlays with her friend Robert Redford about the large and small absurdities of this world. However, while Anna-Marie is at first bursting with disarming joviality, an unexpected reunion suddenly transforms the quiet refuge of the ladies’ bathroom to an incubator for a revolution of socio-politic relevance, that casts a completely new view on the #MeToo movement, with consequences that reach even the spotlights of the Berlinale.
Cast & Crew
For the very first time, director Elisabeth Engstler has realized Marita Urfey-Mülhens’ one-person-tragicomedy “BESETZT” for the stage. With Esther Zimmering, who has been performing on stage since being 12 years old and who has received a variety of accolades as a versatile film actor, a very charismatic embodiment of the character Anna-Marie was able to be cast.
