Pencil Knife Baton Film 95min. GR/DE with engl. Subs

PENCIL KNIFE BATON. Four flatmates in Berlin Max, Nicola, Mariam and Eva, seek truth, acceptation and themselves.

In a parallel universe a group of decadent retired gods Artemis, Demeter, Dionysus, Apollo and Hephaestus, struggle against stereotypes, injustice and oblivion.

The Pencil and the Knife. Creativity and Survival. Two languages, two worlds, two ostensibly different situations, but deep down inextricable, like the two tips of a Baton.

Inbetween black humor and bittersweet realism PENCIL KNIFE BATON makes up a tragicomic philosophical puzzle about friendship and teamwork.

Can humans live side by side with their wounded ideals?

Can the search for personal truth align with social justice?

A movie that exudes the sense of a blithe, punky freedom, yet engages itself in an effort to bridge the gap of alterity, so as to pass to the viewer the Baton..

“If we can’t change the world, let us destroy it.
