Schweigeminute

// TV feature, 2016 //

A minute’s silence is being observed in the grammar school of Hirtshafen, a small fishing town on the Baltic shore – in memory of Stella Petersen, the school’s young English teacher. For one of her students, however, Stella was more than a teacher: She was his first love. From 18-year-old Christian’s point of view, we relive a magical summer affair between two young people that ends abruptly and tragically, but is transformed, through death, to immortality. Based on the novella by Siegfried Lenz.
