Cinema On Demand: Cocoon (15*) + exclusive pre-recorded ScreenTalk with director Leonie Krippendorff

Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Fest

Availability
Two women in a still from Cocoon

In a sun-drenched Berlin summer, 14 year old tag-along Nora watches the older boys and girls and the ways they interact, blinded by the shimmering buzz. 

Quietly observing the nightlife of Kottbusser Tor like the caterpillars she keeps in her room, she knows she's different, but will probably be just like them soon. 
 
But when Nora meets 18 year-old Romy, she sees a different way: an opportunity to grow into something more beautiful and more natural to her. In Romy she sees a chance to live life, rather than stand in the shadows. 
 
Cocoon shows the young body as fragile, thrust into the world with its possibilities and dangers. Leonie Krippendorff's debut is a time capsule, and a perfect, tender story of first love and the queer ways in which we open up the world for each other.
