access>CINEMA at Home: System Crasher (Systemsprenger)

Directed by Nora Fingscheidt

“★ ★ ★ ★ ★  Helena Zengel shines as a furiously traumatised child in Nora Fingscheidt’s extraordinary drama.” The Observer

Meet 9-year-old Benni: bright, charming and out of control. In care because of her violent outbursts, nobody is able to reach her. All Benni wants is to go home to her family, but as her rages intensify, this seems less and less likely. Hope comes in the form of school chaperone Micha, whose own troubled past helps connect the two.

Due to COVID-19, film clubs and arts centres across the access>CINEMA network are temporarily closed.

However through the access>CINEMA at Home virtual cinema experience, audiences can watch System Crasher online through participating arts centres / film clubs and our partner 606 Distribution.

If you rent System Crasher via your local film club or arts centre, you will get the opportunity to support that organisation by selecting to donate part of the proceedings from the rental fee you pay to them, and so directly support that organisation's future film programme.
