German Films Quarterly 03/2020

Director Joya Thome has been reunited with cinematographer Lydia Richter and co-author Philipp Wunderlich for her documentary FOLLOW ME after their successful collaboration on her award-winning feature debut KÖNIGIN VON NIENDORF from 2017.

The film tells the story of two teenage girls on different continents, connected only through their screens and their passion for gymnastics. In the midst of the dazzling social media world, they begin to find out who they are and what they want from life.

FOLLOW ME encourages viewers to also remain true to their individual desires and needs in a digital world, and to use the Internet as a platform for self-realization both in terms of content and art.
