Irgendwann werden wir uns alles erzählen

A film by Emily Atef

Germany, 138 minutes, German

In the summer after the reunification of Germany a teenage girl embarks on a clandestine and passionate relationship with a troubled older man.

The summer of 1990 is hot in the countryside of Thuringia, in former East Germany. Maria is about to turn 19, lives with her boyfriend Johannes on his parents’ farm and would rather lose herself in books than focus on graduating. There is a sense of a new era dawning with the German reunification, when she bumps into Henner, the farmer next door. One touch is all it takes to ignite an all-consuming passion between Maria and the headstrong, charismatic man twice her age. In an atmosphere buzzing with possibilities, love is born: a secret passion full of longing and desire that devours everything in its path.

Directors Statement
Emily Atef

What I found fascinating in Daniela Krien’s novel »Some Day We Will Tell Each Other Everything« is her taboo breaking portrayal of a young woman’s desire, of female desire, with all its facets. The curiosity of the main character Maria, to test her limits, to understand herself and life, without fear of transgressing moral or social boundaries. The fact that she is allowed to do this as a woman, especially as a young woman, is something I was very interested in bringing to the screen.
