"We worked our arses off hardcore."

Director Sophie Linnenbaum and the team behind THE ORDINARIES

THE ORDINARIES is one of the most compelling German debuts of recent years - honoured with the First Step Award and the New German Cinema Award at the Munich Film Festival.

But: "This film was only possible because we all worked our butts off," says director Sophie Linnenbaum. And indeed, THE ORDINARIES could only be realised because producer Britta Strampe (Bandenfilm), set designer Josefine Lindner, VFX supervisor Johannes Blech and everyone else involved put their heart and soul into the joint project. In the FFCGN interview, Sophie, Britta and Josefine reveal what it was like to make THE ORDINARIES, what artists can learn from Donald Trump and why young filmmakers always deserve a second chance.
