Thomas Arslan

A piece of German film history. SOONER exclusively shows you newly restored films by Thomas Arslan.

“I’m not interested in depicting a social milieu, but rather in describing a mental state that it produces.” Yet Thomas Arslan’s films seem like snapshots of our recent past. His Berlin trilogy - consisting of GESCHWISTER, DEALER, and DER SCHÖNE TAG - sensitively portrays the life of Turkish-German youths in Berlin in the 1990s. Arslan’s films are an important part of our film heritage, which must remain alive as a collective memory.
