Oscar: “System Sprenger” is German candidate

Director Nora Fingscheidt

Munich The film “Systemsprenger” by director Nora Fingscheidt is to get the foreign Oscar for Germany in the coming year. The feature film was chosen as the German candidate for the category “Best Non-English Language Film” on Wednesday in Munich. This was announced German Films, the foreign representation of German film, in the early evening.

In January of this year, the Oscar Academy selects five of the foreign candidate films that are officially nominated for the Oscars in the foreign category.

“We are honored and grateful that” Systemsprenger “is the German contribution to the Oscars,” said Fingscheidt in a first reaction. The film is currently on a worldwide festival trip. “The overwhelming response of the audience shows that cinema can establish a dialogue between cultures because it is about being human.”

Seven films were on the list of candidates for the German Oscar candidate – including the Hape Kerkeling biography “The boy must go to the fresh air” by director Caroline Link and “Lara” by Jan-Ole Gerster.

Link has already won the Oscar once – 2003 for her film “Nowhere in Africa”. Except for her, only Volker Schlöndorff did that for Germany with “Die Blechtrommel” (1980) and Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck with “Das Leben der Anderen” (2007).
