New German Cinema Award 2020 for RIVAL

Congratulations to Yelizar Nazarenko, Udo Samel and Maria Bruni as well as director Marcus Lenz and the producers Gunter Hanfgarn and Andrea Ufer. Our feature RIVAL receives the New German Cinema Award 2020 at the International Hof Filmfestival. The Jury (Alfred Holighaus, Katharina Wackernagel, Max von der Groeben) states: »Featuring the fascinating and at the same time authentic young talent Yelizar Nazarenko director Marcus Lenz creates a very emotional and compelling film. Tackling a subject of current political and social relevance at the same time adds to its competent and poised cinematic power.«
