Media Luna’s DIFFERENT KINDS OF RAIN wins in Tallinn


Germany based world sales company Media Luna adds an Award to one of its freshest acquisitions: Different Kinds of Rain by Isa Prahl, winner of Best Film at the First Feature Competition of the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.
Produced by Made in Germany’s Melanie Andernach, starring two of the most acclaimed German actors, Bibiana Beglau (Silver Bear for best actress in The Legend of Rita) and Bjarne Mädel (24 Weeks, Berlinale 2016), enriched by the score of Volker Bertelmann aka Hauschka (Academy Award nominated for Lion, 2016).
The film focuses on the troubles of Generation Z, specifically the so-called “Secluded” – teenagers locking themselves in with no apparent reason. Here the closed door starts to become a mirror for the whole family’s lives.
The jury, consisting in Eitan Anner (director), Aiste Diržiute (actress), Takeo Hisamatsu (festival director), Fernando Loureiro (producer), Tiina Mälberg (actress), Guillaume de Seille (producer) stated the reason: “For injecting new energy and a fresh approach into the portrayal of a family falling apart.”
