Staged during the actual events of the G20 summit 2017 in Hamburg, Germany, Lenina is led in documentary way through a fictional dystopian world that highlights the possible long-term effects of todays’s decisions and politics. In an enduring state of emergency repression gains the upper hand and society increasingly loses trust in the elite and she has to decide where she stands. An interweaving of reality and fiction. A bridge building between today and tomorrow: contentual and film stylistic.

“An incredibly intensive, explosive, highly political and likewise important film. Amzingly staged and with an excellent camera.”
