Two men and a woman get comfortable in front of the TV. A highly anticipated tennis match is to be broadcast – this being the year 1995, when tennis still mattered on German TV. Yet due to rain in New York, the court is covered with plastic sheets and the match is postponed. Thus, one has to wait. In his minimalist film "Regen in New York" ("Rain in New York"), Krischan Koch turns this everyday situation into a laconic reflection on television, sports and the passage of time. Clad in Hawaii shirts and track suits, Joachim Król, Catrin Striebeck and Leonard Lansink shine as the leads. Thanks to them, phrases like "But it's raining in Flushing Meadows" suddenly sound very insightful. We are happy to present "Regen in New York" on filmportal.de as part of "Auf die Sekunde gut", our cooperation with the KurzFilmAgentur Hamburg. An overview of all the shorts currently presented in the program can be found here.
