One year single in the Berlin queer scene – how hard can it be?
Mixed Messages is an addictive new episodic web series that follows 36-year-old London dyke Ren (played by newcomer Alana Lake) as she navigates her way through the treacherous terrain of the alternative Berlin queer scene. From speed-dating to bondage from meditation to being trapped in a hammock with someone who is more interested in their Tinder profile, each episode shows Ren sinking further and further into ambiguity and confusion until the only way out is to send a few mixed messages of her own.
Plucked from real life stories and with often awkward and hilarious consequences, Kanchi Wichmann's follow up to her 2011 feature Break My Fall is a highly entertaining and very relatable journey through the pitfalls of modern queer dating.
followed by a Q&A with director Kanchi Wichmann and actor Alana Lake
