Rocca verändert die Welt
Director: Katja Benrath
What would Pippi Longstocking be like if she lived in our time? Would she have her own Youtube channel? The protagonist of this adventure drama, eleven year old Rocca, is the spitting image of the famous Astrid Lindgren heroine. She is fearless and always looks on the bright side of life, never afraid to take a stand against injustice. Rocca proves that one child is enough to change the world for the better.
Rocca Changes the World was named as best children's film at the German Film Awards 2019. The director has studied acting and vocals at the Vienna Conservatory and directing at the Hamburg Media School.
Curator's point of view: Bright and cheerful contemporary version on the legendary Pippi Longstocking.
