LIFF Presents: System Crasher

LIFF Presents: System Crasher


One of the top five audience favourites at LIFF 2019, we are giving you another chance to see the intense and unforgettable German drama, System Crasher.

Nine-year-old Benni is a ‘system crasher’, a foster child whose behaviour is so out of control that she cannot be placed with families. Benni is desperate to be back at home with her mother, but Bianca is scared of her own daughter. Determined to find a solution, her case worker aided by Micha, a young man who specializes in anger management, finds there is a glimmer of hope that they might succeed where everyone else failed. First-time director Nora Fingscheidt picked up the Alfred Bauer Prize at the Berlinale for this passionate tale of a foster child pushing the system to its limits.

Director Nora Fingscheidt conceived the film while shooting a documentary about a home for dispossessed women, where she first heard the unofficial term ‘system crasher’. Struck by these troubled children she wondered if it were possible to re-channel their incredible energy and use it for positive purposes.
