Other guests included Frauke Kolbmüller, producer of the award-winning "Systemsprenger" movie focusing on the life of a rebellious nine-year-old girl. Director Fatih Akin will present his film "Soul Kitchen" and Stefanie Hempel gave a musical introduction to "Yesterday" in front of a legendary photo of the Fab Four taken on the Heiligengeistfeld by the recently deceased Astrid Kirchherr.
