Trailers "Touch Me Not (2018)"
This is director Adina Pintilie's feature film debut.
Shot without a traditional screenplay or written dialogue.
Actor Christian Bayerlein was born with a severe disability called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). He has a diploma in computer science and works as a web developer at the German Federal Archives. He lives in Koblenz, Germany, and was the Honorary Disability Officer of Koblenz for five years until 2015. Because of his participation in provocative art and his intimate interviews - available online in German - concerning his sexual life as a disabled person, the ruling political party CDU was against his re-election. On his personal website 'www.thalon.de' Christian writes about himself: "I'm a nerd, loving Science and Science Fiction - especially 'Star Trek'. I travel a lot, seeing the world is one of my big passions. I love to hang out with friends and go to the cinema as well as enjoying arts and culture."
Adina Pintilie is only the 6th female director to win the Golden Bear for Best Feature Film. The other women were Márta Mészáros (for Örökbefogadás (1975)), Larisa Shepitko (for Voskhozhdenie (1977)), Jasmila Zbanic (for Grbavica (2006)), Claudia Llosa (for La teta asustada (2009)) and Ildikó Enyedi (for Teströl és lélekröl (2017)).
The film project took 7 years from the first concept to the premiere.
This is the second Romanian feature to win the Golden Bear after Pozitia copilului (2013).
Shot in 10 weeks between 2015 and 2017.
Touch Me Not (2018) is the first part of a research and art project by Adina Pintilie, that will be created for several platforms.
There were reportedly many walk-outs during the first press screening. But later at the world premiere, there were only very few and the reception was positive including a big applause.
Over 250 hours of raw footage were shot.
