Struggling to make sense of himself in a city he’s no longer familiar with, he embarks on a personal journey across the country that opens up the possibility for friendship, love and happiness.

20 Feb   7pm    Cocoon    (2021)         15/  German | Subtitles: English,  93 mins

Falling in love was never on the cards. Nora, a shy Berlin girl, was always hanging around in the shadow of her older sister, attempting to fit in with her friends; image obsessed girls who only care about looks and immature guys who think insults are the best way to a girl’s heart. Nora has her own way of looking at the world, when she meets Romy she realises why and instantly falls for her. Forging her own identity Nora no longer feels invisible. A true depiction of the trials and triumphs of female adolescence, Cocoon is a raw and honest coming-of-age tale  https://vimeo.com/ondemand/cocoonfilm
