Portraits of German Alcoholics
(Germany 2010)

The people that tell their story in this film are alcoholics. Beyond that they are lawyers, bureaucrats, home makers, managers, colleagues or mothers. "Portraits of German Alcoholics" explores the life stories and the survival strategies of people who are trying to arrange their daily lives around an addiction. The film opens a perspective on a reality lying behind assumed normalcy, a reality pervaded by unfulfillable yearnings.
