Mission: To celebrate the German release of the movie “Die Schlösser aus Sand”, we’re inviting you to visualize the art of letting go. What attracts us to each other? Why is it so hard to let go?

The film, winner of the Audience Award at Filmkunstmesse Leipzig 2016, will debut in German cinemas on April 27th, 2017. The movie tells the touching story of ex-lovers Eleanor and Samuel from Paris. Eleanor is a photographer, wild and hungry for life and Samuel is a scientist, calm and collected. When Eleanor’s father suddenly dies, she asks Samuel to help her sell the family home she has inherited in Brittany, Cotes d’Armor.

Prize: The grand prize winner will receive a Lomo’Instant San Sebastiàn + film. The runner-up will receive a LomoKino + 35mm film and one finalist will receive a 15 EUR Lomography Voucher for the online shop as well as cinema tickets.

Deadline: April 21st, 2017
