Scene from “Sparrows” (photo © Ed Herzog)

A man meets a woman in a bar. They walk through the night without any reason. At dawn they separate again. A long take.

Jan Speckenbach studied directing at the German Film and Television Academy (dffb) in Berlin. His short film THE OTHER DAY IN EDEN premiered in Cannes’ Cinéfondation in 2008. One year later, his short film SPARROWS started it's successful worldwide festival circuit in Cannes, too. His debut feature film REPORTED MISSING premiered at the Berlinale and was nominated for the European Film Awards in 2012. FREEDOM (2017) is his second feature.
