GER 2023

M., played by Margarita Breitkreiz, a forty-year-old actress apparently has passed the zenith of her career. Once acting for the most prestigious stages in Germany (Volksbühne Berlin, Berliner Ensemble, Maxim-Gorki-Theater) it turns out difficult for her to get proper engagements. Not only in theatre, but also in film industry, it seems to become more challenging to get parts with advancing age, especially as a woman, moreover as a woman of migrant origin. If she gets an offer for a part, it’s mostly for those serving her Russian origin as a cliché.
