For the shy 14-year old Nora (Lena Urzendowsky), this record-hot summer in Berlin will be like no other. Often the silent observer who tags along with her older sister Jule (Lena Klenke) and her clique of high school friends, Nora knows that she sees the world differently. However, when she meets and falls in love with Romy (Jella Haase), an older schoolmate, she begins to understand why. She slowly emerges from her cocoon to become a confident butterfly, ready to spread her wings and fly into adulthood. Krippendorff’s debut feature is an intimate coming-of-age story and a moving character study set in the macrocosm of Berlin-Kreuzberg. In addition to nominations at the Berlin International Film Festival, COCOON won the Bavarian Film Awards for directing and for its lead actress, Lena Urzendowsky.
