Interview mit Sophie Linnenbaum

Sophie Linnenbaum is bursting with ideas, from which small short film blossoms sprout again and again. Sometimes she makes 2 or 3 films a year. In her award-winning films, she observes small everyday moments and interpersonal encounters that often tip over into the absurd. THE ORDINARIES, Sophie Linnenbaum’s feature film debut, which has caused a stir at festivals and will be released in cinemas at the end of March 2023, is very much in this tradition. Sophie Linnenbaum talks to Borjana Gaković about one of her earlier works – the short film PIX, which won the German Short Film Award in 2017 – but also about current projects.
