  • The Humanitarians film image

Maximilian Haslberger / Germany / 2014 / 98 mins / German with English subtitles / Documentary

Lacking the agency to structure their daily existence, the two disabled protagonists Sven and Jochen both struggle in their search for sexual and emotional fulfilment. Jochen’s sister’s stifling protection includes confiscating his porn, and Sven’s desire for sexual freedom is facilitated with prostitutes. This bold film offers a unique perspective of our endless search for love and fulfilment.

This film has been exempt from classification and is restricted to people over 18 years.
