KICKSTARTER: Desire Will Set You Free by Yony Leyser / Amard Bird Films

DESIRE WILL SET YOU FREE is a feature-length narrative film that explores artistic and marginalised life in Berlin with an often critical, and sometimes humorous (but always reverent) eye. Based on a true story, and at times travelling into the realm of docufiction, the plot follows the relationship of an American writer of Israeli/Palestinian descent and a Russian aspiring artist working as a hustler, offering access to the city’s vibrant queer and underground scenes while examining the differences between expatriate and refugee life.
