Life is not exactly exciting in the Brandenburg province. Especially not for Markus, who is queer. He is a carer for his grandmother Alma and her partner, has a mini-job and meets Grindr dates. But he longs for Berlin and an urban family of choice. His suitcases are packed. But then Alma's condition worsens and Markus falls in love with Duc. He has to make a decision. NEUBAU skilfully avoids the clichés of the coming-out drama and instead shows the life of an extraordinary person in all its aspects. Tucké Royale received the Braunschweig Film Award in 2020 for NEUBAU. This year he is a guest at film talks and a panelist at Diversity in German Films.

Director's Biography:Johannes Maria Schmit, born 1981 in Trier, studied at the Ernst Busch Academy in Berlin. Later, he became in-house director at the Centraltheater Leipzig. Since 2011, he works as freelance director in Germany and Sweden. NEUBAU is his debut film.
