Icons of Light

| 81

Katharina and Steffen are an up-and-coming Berlin couple. But something gnaws at them. One night they decide to take a radical step. "Rarely has German cinema of the past few years been as innovative, emotional, colorful and brutal as Christian Morismüller's new film, ICONS OF LIGHT, which premiered at the Filmfestival Max-Ophüls-Preis." (Max Fischer / We are Movies) Katharina (Theresa Scholze) and Steffen (Max Riemelt) seem like the quintessential successful Berlin couple – they have well-paying jobs, a loving relationship and a spectacular apartment. One night, fed up with the predictability of their lives, they decide on a radical change: They’re going to extinguish all traces of their existence and start over.
