Children of the Moon
Filmfest 2006

12-year-old Lisa's 6-year-old brother Paul suffers from a rare, incurable form of skin cancer. He has to avoid sunlight and stays at home behind special darkened windows. Lisa has created a fantasy world for Paul in which he is a space ship captain who cannot live on Planet Earth. But when Lisa falls in love for the first time, brother and sister have to learn to adapt to the new reality. "The nightly adventures of the three main characters give them hope even if the understanding they reach is only a dream." Manuela Stacke Winner of the Audience Prize at the Filmfestival Max Ophüls Preis in Saarbrücken.
