Description

Eline Gehring collaborated with fellow DFFB students Francy Fabritz and Sara Fazilat on the screenplay for their debut feature and pre-thesis film Nico. Fazilat is cast as the emancipated and cheerful German-Iranian Nico who is the most popular geriatric nurse among her clients. She has a gentle and understanding way in finding time for each and every one of them. She is enjoying summer in Berlin with her best friend Rosa when an attack wrenches the self-confident woman out of her seemingly carefree everyday routine. She realizes that she's not really so accepted after all and now sees the level of xenophobia surrounding her. She decides that self-empowerment is the only way out of this predicament...


Director: Eline Gehring
Germany 2020

This film screening is part of the Goethe-Institut's series Kino@Goethe 2023Addressing racism, sexism, homophobia, immigration and integration, this Kino@Goethe series offers new perspectives on the leading societal challenges in Germany. The films invite the viewer to question their own self-images, and by focusing on the structurally disadvantaged groups, the films clearly show that even the much talked about issues such as racism and the unequal treatment of women still deserve awareness and discussion.
