TEMPEL

Directed by: Philipp Leinemann
Music by: Boris Bojadzhiev



Tempel is a new signature mini-series produced for the digital TV channel ZDFneo, dealing with the subject of gentrification in Berlin.

Mark Tempel (Ken Duken) lives with his wife and daughter in Wedding, a Berlin district slowly but surely confronted with the inexorable process of gentrification. Fed up with the feeling of powerlessness and bearing how rich and powerful people determine the lives of middleclass citizens, Mark starts fighting the mafia-like estate company and gets tangled up in an environment of petty crooks he had turned his back on years ago...

Tempel consists of six 30 minute sequels.
