The remarkable and charismatic Ingeborg Bachmann has conquered the male dominated bastion of German-language literature with her poetry. Though still young, Bachmann is at the peak of her career. Her relationship with Max Frisch is passionate, but professional friction begins to disrupt the harmony. When Ingeborg is struggling, her friends are there to help. On a journey into the desert, she finds a way back to herself and – above all – to her writing. In Margarethe von Trotta's new feature film Vicky Krieps and Ronald Zehrfeld are in the leads as Ingeborg Bachmann and Max Frisch, with Tobias Resch, Basil Eidenbenz, Luna Wedler and Marc Limpach also featured in the cast. Alamode Film and MFA+ will release the film in German cinemas in 2023. "Ingeborg Bachmann – Journey into the Desert" is a production between Heimatfilm, tellfilm (CH), Amour Fou Vienna (AUT) and Amour Fou Luxembourg (LUX). The Film- und Medienstiftung NRW supported the film with 700,000 Euros, with additional funding coming from FFA, DFFF and Eurimages.
