In My Room
by Ulrich Köhler
Armin is getting too old for his night life habits and the woman he likes. He’s not really happy, but can’t picture living a different life. One morning he wakes up: the world looks the same as always, but mankind has disappeared. – A film about the frightening gift of maximum freedom.
Born in 1969 in Marburg, Germany, Ulrich Köhler studied Fine Arts in Quimper, France, philosophy in Hamburg and later Visual Communication at the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg, where he also made his first short films.
