The European Film Festival of Generations (Oct. 1-Nov. 30, 2022) is taking place in Stuttgart for the fifth time this year, and we're participating for the first time.
This year's film festival focuses on films and documentaries that deal with the topics of age and aging as well as the dialog between generations.
The Haus für Film und Medien Stuttgart association, in cooperation with the Innenstadtkinos Stuttgart and the vhs Stuttgart, is showing two films for young and old - best viewed together.

The screening will be followed by a talk with director Mischa Kamp. All are welcome to ask questions and be curious. The event will be moderated by Nathalie Andries (cineaste and cultural manager).
Actually, Grandma Stine doesn't like it at all that she has to take care of her granddaughter Romy after school. After all, she still has to run a hair salon. But her newly divorced daughter Margot also has to work. So Romy comes to her grandma's salon every afternoon and helps out a bit. But as time goes by, she notices that something is wrong with her grandmother. The cash register is no longer right and Stine suddenly begins to talk about her childhood in Danish. Romy increasingly slips into the role of ally and tries to keep the hair salon running. But as the grandmother's dementia progresses, they can no longer keep the illness a secret from Romy's parents. Going to a nursing home seems inevitable. But Romy forges a plan of her own for her beloved Grandma Stine... A warm-hearted grandma-granddaughter story about dementia and the care and shared responsibility between the generations.
