The Ferryman and his wife have sold the farm, the land, the ferry boat and moved to the small city Parchim. On 8 October the film screened at the MovieStar Parchim Cinema. All the friends and neighbours of the ferryman couple were there to celebrate the old couple and their life time achievement – a work of 70 years. We are happy and sad at the same time.

THE FERRYMAN AND HIS WIFE had a wonderful screening in Southeast Asia, in Yangon, Myanmar. And I was lucky enough to be able to attend the event at Wathann Film Fest#5 on 10 September 2015.
Just before the screening a black out hit the cinema because of a fire a few blocks down. The patient guests waited in the heat for 40 minutes until the film could start.
Thank you to the guests for coming, for being interested in a place so far away from their realities. Thanks for your curiosity and questions!
I would also like to thank the powerful Wathann Film Fest#5 Team and the Goethe-Institute Yangon!
