Anna Pavlova, the Russian party queen, embodies the brutal happiness and tragedy of the Berlin party generation of our times. Lost on the edge between insanity and rare poetical lucidity, wandering alone through the streets of Berlin, she shows us the side of the party world that we rarely see. An anti-hero of the civilised society, her existence is a desperate attempt to live in never-ending happiness, in order not to see the world that begins when the party music ends.
Theo Solnik was born in Sao Paulo in 1981 and began to work in theatres as an actor and musician when he was 14 years old. After having studied Philosophy and Social Sciences at the University of Oslo, he made several short films as a director and cinematographer, worked as a freelance journalist and photographer and was the musical director of the third part of the 25-hour-long theatre play Epos ‘Os Sertões’ by the internationally acclaimed Brazilian company Teatro Oficina. Since 2006 he studies film directing at the German Film and Television Academy (DFFB) in Berlin.
