LAINER by Anna Intemann and Dana Loeffelholz
Biographical note of the author
Anna and Dana are two young Cinematographers, Writers and Directors.
Lainer is a long-term unemployed from Berlin that tries his professional luck as a migrant worker in distant Beijing. However, in this culture completely alien to him, his life does not develop as smoothly as he might have imagined.
A German unemployed going to China looking for a job. He finds it as laundry worker in a packaging enterprise. He isn’t a “knowledge worker”. He isn’t a well paid worker. He suffers so much: languages, food, quality of life…everything is so different from Germany. Lainer tries to adapt; it is unclear how much he does it. Overall, a very strange situation, without evidences of its nature of fiction. Clever. Provocative. Hopefully not prescient
