here she comes. The rolling suitcase in Hand, the disheveled hair, and a ton of relief in sight. "At three o'clock at night, the Film was finally finished," says Nora Fingscheidt and chess plops Matt, but happy on the Sofa of a clean-out cafes. Pretty tight Timing. Sunday morning at the Berlin Central station. Only four days until the festival opening. And her feature film debut in "systems busters", celebrating on the Friday afternoon Premiere.

The Director, who has managed, so to speak, from zero to a hundred in the competition of the Berlinale, comes with the S-Bahn Babelsberg. As they sat at a post-production company on the Studio lot in the film mixture. "Systems busters" is a Low-Budget production. A hotel room was not in it. So she slept with one of your producers in the guest room. This is totally okay for the 35-year-old filmmaker.

her Film tells the story of Benni, a violent girl, just nine years ago, an endless chain of residential groups and shelters. To research, as it is in institutions for the "care-intensive" children, Fingscheidt even lived there and worked. Not once, but several times. Private a graduate of the film Academy lives in Baden-Württemberg in Ludwigsburg since one and a half years in Hamburg. Since your friend and her son are waiting. In a good hour of the train.

The "systems busters"-the screenplay won several prizes

And now: take a breather up to the Berlinale? Nora Fingscheidt laughs. "That'd be good. tomorrow I'm going back here to check the DCP." So the digital copy of the film. To Think about what she wants to wear to the Premiere, didn't she come, too. It was up to your movie, would you Pink. This is the signal color of your heroine Benni. She shoots the girl like a wave through the body, when feelings such as anger, pain and longing to turn off the mind. You have always wanted to make a Film about a wild girl, says Fingscheidt. "In movies to be well-behaved, cute." When Researching for a documentary about a shelter for homeless women and a social worker once used the term "systems busters" for a 14-year-old girl who moved there. The word has started scheidts head.

to finished Film it took. The script was developed over four years with a dramatic advisors and in discussions with fellow students, told finger scheidt. 67 days of shooting for the 123 pages she needed for a record. "Because so many children are involved in many of the scenes are so complex." And because Fingscheidt want to work with your Team, you are accompanied to positions such as camera and editing since the studies carefully.

Ever Nora Fingscheidt is anything other than a competition-a child Prodigy. You can have one of diligence and perseverance stuff the end of the Junior career. The "systems busters"-the screenplay won several prizes. Their short films were shown regularly at the Max Ophüls Preis. In 2017 she won with her documentation, "Without the world" over a country study: Mennonites in Argentina the documentary film award and also the First Steps Award. At the Berlinale Talents, she was twice. And the ZDF has you game recently on a proposal from the editorial Small TV, the "systems busters" co-produced, for a newly launched and directed promotional program selected.

So stringently has not shown started scheidts way in the beginning. "I always wanted to make films that only I knew how." The fingers of one Hand just so, the fan count has anstudiert the high school graduate from Braunschweig in Berlin on a semester basis. Access to the film to make it finds when she returns in the 2003 self-organized the Berlin film school, ark, and soon also on the Board of Directors and in the youth film networks engaged. "Personal initiative is promoted in the film ark extreme," says Nora Fingscheidt. Since you've learned to take things in Hand, and at zero, with a project start. A process of learning, without competition, for you and your cinematic Know-how was as important as the subsequent study in Ludwigsburg.

That began scheidt commends the state film schools whether their grass-roots approach is often laughed at filmarche, fits to a Director that is not told in "System Blaster" just of child Distress, but also the beauty of an untamed people. The hypnotic blue eyes of the little Helena Zengel have worn at last year's Berlinale already Masha Schilinskis family drama "The daughter". When Casting all the adults had to be past her: "The girl has oomph."

Nearly useless to say that aggressive children like Helena played Benni in Nora Fingscheidt have an advocate. Behind the quickly as a disturbed convict behavior, pain and fear, am always convinced. "You must not stop to believe in you." The youth helpers, the people you care for, deserve more appreciation by society, wants to emphasize the filmmaker yet. Although it is time to rush to the platform. "Without such people we would be lost."
