“Fourteen and a half Collisions” tells the story of the unusual encounters and strokes of fates without prejudices. After its premiere at the Filmfest Hamburg in 2018 the cinema documentary now takes over the schools and turns the classes into movie theaters. Filmmaker Guido Weihermüller and his team followed the protagonists over a period of one year and deliver a sensitive documentary which challenges the audience perspectives in many ways.
With a SCHOOL-LICENCE the class room, the gym or your your auditorium become a movie theater. You are allowed to show the movie and with the included movie poster and some extra material the movie can be part of a educational unit or activity regarding the topics inclusion and wheelchair basketball.
