Before the premiere of Competition film Kreuzweg (Stations of the Cross), presenter Loretta Stern welcomes up to 120 guests in the Audi Berlinale Lounge to take a glimpse behind the scenes of the Festival. Intriguing background information and a screening of the press conference will get everyone in the mood for the film. Kreuzweg (Stations of the Cross) – Maria is caught between two worlds. At school she is a 14 year old with typical teenage interests. At home her family strictly adheres to the teachings of the Society of Pius XII. Maria's life increasingly becomes an emotional ordeal. The event will take place in German.
