Successful German premiere of "Parents"
On Tuesday 14 July 2020, the outrageously realistic family comedy "Parents" celebrated its German premiere in Düsseldorf. Special guest was the mother actress Elisabeth Niederer. Together with distributor Stephan Winkler from W-film, she presented the humorous autofiction of a real family to an enthusiastic audience in the Atelier Kino.
