Cemetery tearjerker GARDEN OF STARS set for US release June 13

12:28 AM

Acclaimed LGBT title from Europe, "Garden of Stars" is welcomed to VOD June 13 and DVD September 5.

An enchanted cemetery in Berlin. Next to the Grimm Brothers' grave, stillborn babies and gay people rest in peace. This is the Garden of Stars.
From Pasquale Plastino and Stéphane Riethauser, "Garden of Stars" explores the life of Ichgola Androgyn, an AIDS activist who runs German’s first cemetery café. 

As an undertaker, Ichgola focuses on stillborn babies. 

For these so-called "Star Kids", he created a corner with thousands of flowers, pinwheels, elves, fairies, angels and teddy bears watching over the graves, where parents can find an individual spot for their lost child. 

Next to them, many men who wrote key chapters of the Berlin gay liberation movement are resting, victims of the AIDS epidemic. 

In one of Europe's most colorful cemeteries, the funerary culture suddenly takes a new dimension, and life is celebrated with all its mysteries.
