I am a director, writer and producer from Berlin. I develop, produce and direct films and theatrical plays, my themes are as various as my work. I’m interested in extraordinary people and abysmal stories that I tell without moralising. I neither want to teach nor improve, nor to banish boredom from people. I want to bring poetry into drama and make magic moments visible even on the darkest sides. Here on this page you can find examples of my work. Have a good time.

THE FIRST WORLD CUP On July 13, 1930 the first football World Cup began in Montevideo. It was a Sunday, it was winter and snow was falling. Only 500 people had come to the opening game and nevertheless it was the Big Bang to a mega event as we know it today. My current project “The First World Cup” describes the origin and the course of a curious and spectacular event: https://firstworldcup.com

HILA KARNI – CELLO SOULO During the Corona period many people were cut off from normal life. The cellist Hila Karni then developed “Cello Soulo”, an emotional music program that breaks through the isolation of individual people and brings a bit of joy into their lives. I was allowed to accompany Hila to the studio and shoot with her. You can find more of Hila here: https://www.hilakarni.com
PEACHES live Some older staff from 2011 – Peaches live at the Kastanienallee in Berlin. I remember a very sunny day and atmospheric hours with a great artist, whose wisdom, modesty and warmth of heart were as impressive as her solidarity concert for the residents of Kastanienallee in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. It was a pleasure and an honor to work with her.
THE DANCER I met the Italian dance student Giovanna Sacculo at a Walpurgis Night in the Berlin Mauerpark, where she performed a magical fire dance in front of a large audience. We arranged to meet the next day to film her dance on the water tower plateau in the Kollwitzkiez. Thanks to the many friends and helpers, who are not to be seen in the film, but who were there and supported us.
FABRIKHALLE Around 2010 was the time of the camera drone flying. I could not escape this fascination either and was trained in the control of such an aircraft. It is not as easy as it looks, accordingly often there was breakage. But it is great fun. And if you master the aircraft, there are endless possibilities for a literally lifted camera. In this short film you can check out my first attempts.
