About the Event

What You Can See From Here Film Trailer  HERE

What You Can See From Here the film, is a wondrous adaptation of the best selling novel of the same name which is a story about the absurdity of life and death, a bittersweet portrait of village life and the wider world that beckons beyond,  about the way loss and love shape not just a person, but a community.

It's about love, reluctant love, late love, dealing with grief and finding one's place in the world and if they aren't all good ingredients for a film to enjoy we're not here. 

What You Can See From Here  is set in a small, picturesque German village,  unusual in the modern age in that superstitions from other times are believed. On a  beautiful spring day Selma (played by Corinna Hafouch from Downfall)  has a premonition the villagers dread . She has dreamt of a rare animal again - an okapi and  all the village knows this means. As per tradition, someone in the village is about to die. 

Selma's granddaughter, 11-year-old Luise, and her best friend Martin look on as fears of being the victim of the prophecy throw the village into a frenzy of confusion.

When the premonition comes true, it is young Luise's world that is suddenly turned upside down. 

Ten years on from the event that changed her life, Luise lives a quiet life working in a bookstore, until the arrival of an unexpected guest enables her to rediscover how powerful and life-giving love can be.

“I tried to build the script like an okapi: things that seem strange at first glance turn into something beautiful later on” Director Aron Lehmann

"Poetic and Beautiful." Cineuropa. 

" Harfouch [and] Markovics both deliver brilliant performances of their careers."  FILM GENUSS
