A Film by Sebastian Linke and Gerald Haffke about some man’s (me) fear of the first time – taking a lift. It was shot in a hurry just days before our visit to the Cannes Film Festival in 2007 as an entry for the Open Ohr Festival’s film competition about the subject „fear“ – and it still won! In 2009, it was also shown at the Hamburg International Shortfilm Festival.

Sebastian Linke is also acting in the film, as is Liljana Elges. You can find a lot more information about the film at its website, alas only in German – http://www.tapsmedia.de/sbustshow/filme/das-erste-mal/notizen

While the film has by now been subtitled, the version on youtube is not. So, if you understand German, enjoy!
