DREILEBEN - DON'T FOLLOW ME AROUND

Germany, 2011 (MIFF 2011, Prime Time)

Director: Dominik Graf

DREILEBEN - DON'T FOLLOW ME AROUND

"Unexpected connections between strangers and friends, and the past and present, are the motor of Dreileben: Don't Follow Me Around." - Variety

Police psychologist Jo is brought to the town of Dreileben to help hunt down a dangerous sex offender hiding in a nearby forest, but when she unexpectedly finds herself staying with a friend from her university days old secrets and new perspectives on the past come to light.

The second stand-alone feature in the Dreileben series, Don't Follow Me Around is Dominik Graf's (A Map of the Heart, The Red Cockatoo) probing look at how closely our personal histories can intertwine with each other without our knowledge.

"Even visually, it surprised us... Michael Wiesweg's cinematography looked degraded and fuzzed-out, with soft colors and light flaring in the frame like a set of 70s Polaroid photographs." - indieWIRE
