THE CASE YOU

Alison Kuhn / Germany / 2020 / 81 min
Performative MeToo film, where young actresses meet to reconstruct the systematic abuse they suffered during a casting.

Five years ago, several hundred German women took part in an audition for an art film about incestuous relationships. Many of the young actresses were manipulated in a systematic abuse of a both sexual and violent nature. And now they discover that the footage from their audition has been used in the finished film. Alison Kuhn was one of them, and while a lawsuit is underway between the victims and the filmmakers, she invites five of the women to reenact the experience in a safe setting at a theatre. A highly topical film about MeToo and the abuse culture in the film industry, where young women are reclaiming power.
