Fanni has had enough of money and leaves to buy a tent. Anna has had enough of pigs and leaves the farmer - one needle in the hay. In the new game Fanni rolls the dice while Anna does not think twice - she knocks down all the pins. Together they raise their voice and shape one mutual tune. Differences attract each other, and jolly they move on - together on their distinct journeys, where their dreams are set - towards a new found liberty.

Thoughts on SOLDATE JEANNETTE
"Chutzpah" is a word I had spelled in big letters on a board at my home. I think one should take up the cause of it. Fanni lives it and it has something amusing about it. One gets far with chutzpah and it is essential to know that chutzpah is allowed, but it is never applied because we walk around the streets completely domesticated, that chutzpah will be extinct at some point. Daniel Hoesl, Katharina Posch and Gerald Kerkletz talk about SOLDATE JEANNETTE that conquered its first audience at the Sundance Festival.
