Metadata:

Bruno, a.k.a. King of the Road, repairs film projectors and travels along the inner German border in his truck, where he meets psychologist Robert (a.k.a. Kamikaze), who is fleeing from his own past. Their shared journey through a German no-man’s-land leads them from the Lüneburg Heath to the Bavarian Forest, scattered with little towns with dying movie theaters in an era of cinematic mass extinction. The old moving van with the film projectors in the back becomes a metaphor for the history of film, also touching on themes of loneliness and postwar Germany. In German with English subtitles. Contains explicit content.
