(Orig. Mein Fleisch und Blut)


Thriller Drama (90min) | Outline

A German-Turkish girl, Dilara, has followed her first, big love Jan to Hamburg. There she has joined the logistic company of his family and was able to prove herself. But after she gives birth to her daughter, however, she discovers that the company invests in cum-ex-funds and that Jan is manipulated by his dominant father. Soon, Dilara is no longer just fighting for her own existence. MY FLESH AND MY BLOOD is the story of an underdog-woman who seeks her place in the world and eventually finds her place in herself. It’s a story about identity and ascription (discrimination). In other word; it's about what it means to be German today.

PANIC IN PARADISE (2018)


(Orig. PANIK IN PARADISE)


Comedy (ca. 100min) | Screenplay 1. Draft

Due to the bankruptcy of a low-cost airline, an aircraft cargo of German tourists is suddenly trapped on the tropical island of the Dominican Republic. A self-proclaimed group leader evacuates his fellow sufferers to the nearby all-inclusive Hotel Paradise. It turns out to be the purest hell. The tense waiting of all tourists finally culminates in a "veritable" revolution. Lead by a nurse who does not accept everything as it is for no longer anymore. PANIC IN PARADISE is a story about the isolation of people and their fears. It depicts a situation and the behavior that radical capitalism produces. It shows its consequence of people’s deeply internalized fears of never being good enough. It is a comedy to empower us to emancipate from our fears and instead engage in solidarity actions.
