Albert and Marta, both in their late 70s, live across the street from one another in a bustling section of Berlin’s Mitte. Every day, the two neighbors meet – each in their respective windows – at nine am to watch the world unfold below them. One morning, the clock strikes nine but there is no sign of Albert.
Tapping into a well of courage, Marta crosses social and personal boundaries and makes a trip to the other side of the street. What she finds there unleashes a youthful energy within her. With this newfound strength, she comforts and surprises her dear neighbor and friend.
Bis Gleich is the debut production of AvenueROAD Films, an independent production company based in Los Angeles and Berlin. The company was launched in 2013 by Tara Lynn Orr and Philippe Brenninkmeyer.
The film was filmed entirely on location in Berlin, directed by veteran commercial director Benjamin Wolff.
