Axolotl Overkill
Directed by Lauren Wolkstein & Christopher Radcliff
Germany, Narrative, 94 minutes

Set against the backdrop of wild Berlin, a troubled young teenager struggles to cope after the death of her mother. Unsupervised and undisciplined, she drifts in and out of relationships, testing her emotional and sexual limits. Shown through tense, occasionally humorous, and otherworldly vignettes, Axolotl Overkill offers a female perspective on the angsty self-destructive anti-hero. Director Helene Hegemann adapts the screenplay from her own novel. The title references the unusual life-cycle of an axolotl, an amphibian that reaches maturity without metamorphosis.
