Haus Kummerveldt

The complete series in the cinema mix – or how the aristocratic Luise cured hysteria by screaming until her corset burst from her waist into the Fatherland’s face.

Haus Kummerveldt is a historical dramedy about female emancipation in the German Empire of the 19th century, which thematically goes beyond the historical setting and skillfully ties in with contemporary discourses. As an original web series with a modern punk-pop design and black humor, Haus Kummerveldt is great fun. The main character Luise is inspired by the lives and works of numerous national and international women writers of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, such as Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, Luise Büchner, Else Lasker-Schüler and Mary Shelley.
