Open is a short film about a long story: about the possibilities of love, three women, chances and the omnipotence of fear and threat.

Charlotte Siebenrock was born in 1962 and studied Acting in Berlin. Since 1984 she has worked both in front of and behind the camera for Christoph Eichhorn, Christel Buschmann and Christoph Schlingensief, who took her with him to the Volksbuehne in Berlin as a guest actress.
