One for the Road

Directed by Markus Goller

Cast: Burak Yiğit, Frederick Lau, Nora Tschirner

Opening Night Film & North American Premiere with Director Markus Goller in Person. Markus Goller was honored with the 2024 Berlin & Beyond Film Maker Award.

As a construction manager, drinking is more of a normality for Mark than not drinking. In addition to his work on construction sites, during business dinners and sprawling Berlin party nights, there is always a reason for him to fully indulge in alcohol intoxication. When he tries to drive his car out of a no-parking zone in a drunken stupor one night, he is promptly checked and immediately loses his driver’s license. For Mark, this is reason enough to make a bet with his best friend Nadim: He wants to manage not to touch any alcohol until he has his driver’s license again.

Presented by the Goethe-Institut San Francisco with the support of the Excelsior German Center (Premiere Sponsor), the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in San Francisco (Premiere Sponsor), and Mercedes-Benz Research and Development North America.
