Just play me some music!

Featured Track: Spätsommersonne



A queer coming-of-age film about Jonas, struggling with how to label his relationships with Malte and Lea.

Screened at Mittelfränkisches Jugendfilmfestival and Werkstatt der jungen Filmszene (Wiesbaden).

Grillenbeck’s mix of delicate guitar and synth/vocal washes offers a positive aural environment from which the film’s story unfolds. It’s a lovely little score for dreamy sunny afternoons.
