Comedy Queen

Sasha is just 13 years old and wants nothing more than to become a stand-up comedian. She wants to make everyone laugh, especially her father who cries in the shower when he thinks no one is listening. Behind her eyes, the life- threatening tears also burn on Sasha, but she refuses to mourn her mother, who has passed away. She secretly writes a list of everything she has to do to survive - shave her hair, stop reading books, say no to the world’s cutest puppy and above all - become a Comedy Queen.

COMEDY QUEEN world premiered at the 72nd Berlin International Film Festival, where it also won the prestigious Crystal Bear for Best Film in the Generation Kplus section. This marked the second time Sanna Lenken has won for Best Film in the Generation section at the Berlinale, as she in 2015 won the Crystal Bear for her debut feature “My Skinny Sister”. The film is based on Jenny Jägerfeld’s acclaimed novel of the same name, which has been sold to 21 countries worldwide, including China, Japan, Germany and France.
