Tackling essential questions around children and young people's mental health, we're backing this multi award-winning German film with special preview showings available now to both members and non members.

The film, from director Nora Fingscheidt, deals with a young girl in the German child protection services who is known as a ’System Crasher’ due to her wild and destructive ways. The film follows her journey as she aims to be reunited with her mother, while an anger management trainer tries to succeed where others have failed. The film has been widely praised for its unforgettable performances and its sympathetic and unflinching look at the world of child protective services. 

Among many awards, the film won the Alfred Bauer Prize at the 69th Berlin International Film Festival - it was also the German entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 92nd Academy Awards. Its young star, Helena Zengel, is also now working with Tom Hanks and Paul Greengrass in their latest film “News of the World”.
