Early Bird: Festival at Five

Thomas Stuber’s simple yet masterful In the Aisles, a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the consumerist society, gives a window on the world of ordinary workers in east German provinces, centring on individuals whom life has seemingly passed by.


Christian is new to the superstore. Filling the endless aisles is a solitary pursuit, especially during nightshift. Still, his colleague Bruno from the drinks department takes him under his wing, soon becoming a fatherly friend. The charming Marion likes to have a bit of a laugh and a joke with Christian. His lonely days seem to be over when he falls in love with her. But Marion is married, albeit unhappily by all accounts. Christian now falls into a deep hole, and his miserable old life threatens to engulf him once more.

“GDR and the dissolution, that's all been told, that doesn't interest me, what interests me is the post-change, the places and lifeworlds. I'd like to explore what's special about these people and these places. I’d like to give voice to these marginal characters. I’d like to tell big, powerful stories, which one would understand in Bangkok and New York.” (Thomas Stuber)
