Annika Pinske grew up in Frankfurt/Oder. Parallel to her studies in philosophy and literature she worked for theatre director René Pollesch, followed by a creative assistance to German film director Maren Ade (Toni Erdmann). In 2011, she started studying film directing at the German Film- and Television Academy Berlin (DFFB). Her short films were awarded and screened worldwide, such as Anyways (Nomination German Short Film Award 2015) and, Homework (Winner German Short Film Award 2016) . Talking About The Weather is her graduation film at the DFFB.
Clara has made it: she has got away from her native provincial East Germany, now living a bohemian life in Berlin, teaching philosophy while finishing her Ph. D. Between an affair with one of her students and her testy friendship with her thesis advisor Margot, she barely has time to see her 15-year-old daughter, who mostly lives with her ex. But when Clara visits her mother for a weekend, she finds herself confronted with her ideal of an unfettered, self-determined life. How high is the price she must pay for it?
