East Germany 1992: Moritz Schmidtke (12) is spending his holidays at the same campground as every year. His parent’s problems, the changes made by a new political system, and brutal swimming lessons have left their mark. When Enrico has an accident, Moritz is inspired to take matters into his own hands, and to no longer be a victim of his environment. LYCHEN 92 is an adaptation of the short story ELMER by Andreas Steinhöfel, set in the post-reign of East Germany.

Born in East-Berlin, Constanze Klaue studied German literature and jazz music. Afterwards, she worked as a writer and director for a commercial film production in Cologne before going to the Academy of Media Arts in 2014 to concentrate entirely on filmmaking.
As a freelance writer and director, she writes for film, music and literature alike. One focus is the child’s perspective – another is the social examination of the consequences of German reunification. In 2015, her autobiographical essay Our Home was awarded by the Deutsche Gesellschaft and the Federal Ministry of the Interior and published by the Mitteldeutscher Verlag. In 2017/18 she was a scholarship holder of the Academy for Children’s Media and received the Boje-Baumhaus- Media Prize for her novel project Motz & Mops. The book will be published by DTV in 2020. Under her pseudonym Erna Rot, she publishes prosaic, German-language jazz music (ACT Music) and tours regularly with her band.
