What would a man in Lederhosen do in Marzahn – a Berliner suburb? Herbert is looking for somebody. Somebody who would listen to his music and maybe even sing with him. For many people, German folk music satisfies a longing that cannot be fulfilled anywhere else.

This film is about these people. About fervent fans, folk music show veterans, urban yodelers and one who headed out to sing to the city.


Janina Herhoffer was born in 1978 in Heidelberg. She studied Editing at the IFS International Film School in Cologne and the University of Film and Television \"Konrad Wolf\" in Potsdam. Since 2000, she has been active as an editor and dramaturgical adivsor for various feature and documentary productions. There Are Still Mountains Outside marks her debut as a director.
