THIS SUMMER FEELING
A young woman dies unexpectedly in Berlin, leaving the people around her in shock: Speechless and struggling for the right words, feelings and perspectives after this tragedy. It will take her friend Lawrence several summers and four places – Berlin, Paris, Annecy, New York – to learn how to recover. In his story, director Mikhaël Hers finds despair as well as hope and outrage at how commonplace what strikes us as so devastating is.
