Film series 'Frankfurt Previews' shows David Nawrath's cinema debut 'Atlas'

(ffm) De-housing in Frankfurt's Nordend: a mover, hired to manage the involuntary move of a young family man, believes he recognizes in the young man his son, whom he abandoned decades ago. Father and son get in touch, become closer. The son, however, has no idea that the mover is his father. Then the son is in danger - the real estate mafia is after him. And his father wants to protect him.

. that's the story David Nawrath's feature debut, "Atlas," tells. It's about a difficult father-son relationship, gentrification and criminal machinations in the housing market. Atlas" was shot by 23/5 Filmproduktion in Frankfurt's Bahnhofsviertel and Nordend districts, among others.

Through the City of Frankfurt's Facebook page, the social media team is giving away 5x2 tickets to the preview.
