The dreams of childhood and the ways they resonate in adult life are explored in this documentary from filmmakers Johann Feindt and Tamara Trampe. Set against the backdrop of contemporary Berlin, Wiegenlieder (aka Lullaby) profiles a handful of children as they learn to relate to the world around them through their interactions with their parents. At the same time, the filmmakers interview a handful of adults as they recall their earliest relationships with their parents, all of which involve music. Musician Detlef Jablonski was born in a prison, raised by foster parents and has never known his biological mother; he now performs with an experimental choral group. Helmut Oehring was born unable to hear; he didn't begin taking until he was four, but has gone on to become an award-winning modern classical composer. Apti Bisultanov enjoyed a happy childhood and went on to become a celebrated poet in his homeland, but after a political career in Chechnya, he's been forced to live the rest of his life in exile. And Santos came from a broken home and is trying to go straight after spending time in prison; today, he uses music as an outlet for the anger that used to drive him to violence. Lullaby was an official selection at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival.
