Windspiel

Peyman Ghalambor

A. is 13 and has been abandoned by his mother in a children’s home, where he is taught discipline and obedience. He gets lessons in handiwork, keeps having to clean the home and is locked in a bare room at night. However, he doesn’t like the strict regime and runs away, deep into the forests of Brandenburg. Close to an airport, on the edge of a small village, he meets a lonely old man who takes pity on him. In their ramshackle dwelling, they are free of rules and obligations. But what is the real value of freedom?

With Windspiel, his graduation film from the University of Babelsberg, Peyman Ghalambor sketches a pure, atmospheric and almost wordless portrait of Germany's periphery. Filmed near Cottbus with a few local inhabitants as actors, the afterpains of the country's reunification are tangible everywhere.
