Peter RIGAUD c/o SHOTVIEW met up with sought-after actress Paula Beer in a Berlin Studio for a STERN special. In her new film 'Transit', she plays at the side of yet another shooting star of German cinema, Franz Rogowski. Director Christian Petzold was so utterly convinced by both that he casted her right then and there without an audition. "I was so fascinated to create a story that embodies both the present and past at the same time, that is political and a love story", the actress tells us about the film. "What I love about it is that you don't have to see anything in it at all, but you can see everything."
Paula Beer is different than the successful actresses of her generation because she avoids social networks and never shares photos from her premieres. "I am a bit reactionary", she tells STERN, "but when half a million people see what you do every single day, boundaries are obscured. Everyone thinks they know you, but they just don't."
