System Crasher (15) Ger / 118m

Controversial from the moment it premiered in Competition at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, documentarian Nora Fingshcheidt’s fiction feature debut System Crasher portrays the life of a chaotic young girl. Wild and troubled, 9-year-old Benni (Helena Zengel) keeps getting expelled from one foster home after another due to her uncontrollable aggression. Too young to be held in treatment programmes and too violent to stay in group homes, she is a ‘system crasher’ –unofficially.

Price: £10
