Berlin is a place where brazen ghosts wave to the living, where rock ’n’ roll suicides collide with family myths. Small Machine is an intimate portrayal of young womanhood and coming of age in an unforgiving city, the capital known as much for raucous hedonism as it is for Kaffee-und-Kuchen. Falling in love (and out) in Schillerkiez, clandestine encounters in smoke-filled Kneipen, nighttime dances by the Spree, winter depressions weathered, summer lakes plundered— no cobble is left unturned in Anter’s soaring debut
