When I Cry, My Heart Beats

Wenn ich weine, schlägt mein Herz

Directing: Annett Schütze


Eleven-year-old Mustafa, a street-kid in Bucharest, leads a sad and dangerous life amid drugs, prostitution and violence. During the daytime, he trains in Parada Circus to be circus performer, where he gets a warm meal, a change of clothes and school lessons. Mustafa and five other street children used mini-DV cameras to capture their own very personal lives. With this remarkable material, together with her own observations, director Annett Schütze and her film-team created a poignant and moving portrait about forgotten children who refuse to give up.
