Material-based Writing

Dear School Community,

Class 9 practices “material-based writing” in German class. Information from various sources is collected and processed into an informative text. Among other things, reviews of the film “Kryo” were written. Here is the review by Mwalimu, Nicole and Tia:

“I want to see you again. Promise me,” asks “Evelyn” as she stands in the crematorium waiting for her end. – “I promise,” David answers with tears in his eyes. Evelyn (Jana Klinge) is suffering from cancer, she won’t live much longer. Her husband, David (Beat Marti), is not ready to let her go and wants to save her. To keep Evelyn alive, they visit the Phoenix Foundation together to have Evelyn frozen. In 2403, they wake up again. Evelyn explains to David that they are probably the only people in the world. And something seems to have gone wrong with the cryotherapy. As the couple looks for a way out, David finds the chaotic office of Betty (Eva Probst), the founder of the Phoenix Foundation. What they find in that office will change their lives forever.

Award-winning German filmmaker and writer Christoph Heimer studied at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. With a budget of only 50,000 EUR, he created this imposing science fiction thriller between 2014 and 2016, which served as his final project. The approximately 30-minute film received several awards and was nominated for the famous Max Ophüls Prize, among others. The film deals with how to cope with the loss of a loved one and takes up the ancient legend of “Orpheus and Euridice”. We recommend it for ages 14 and up.

The teaser of the film (in German) can be seen here:
