I had the pleasure of making this short documentary about the Villa Aurora in Los Angeles
The magnificent house has been used as an artist residence since 1995 and it is the former home of the German-Jewish author Lion Feuchtwanger and his wife Marta.
See the film on the VATMH Youtube channel or visit my Vimeo channel for a 4k version or a shorter version in German. Enjoy!
Another amazing festival just picked up ANTUMBRA. The Miami SciFi festival, the best SciFi festival in the South Eastern US, included the film into this year’s lineup.
Due to the pandemic, the festival will be virtual. Our screening is scheduled for February 24th, at 9:15pm (EST) or 6:15 (PST). Join us on eventive for the screening.
2020 was a hard year for all of us but we still managed to shoot a great practicum at Griffith Park. Check out BLUNT! – an example of how to date in a pandemic or – what is sub-text. 🙂 Enjoy!

So honored that ANTUMBRA got picked up by the Berlin Sci-Fi Filmfest, Germany’s Premiere International Science Fiction Festival. The festival will be online on Xerb.

ANTUMBRA was shot as a CINE Practicum with a very talented group of cinematography students and produced at the New York Film Academy in 2019.

FOR THE FUTURE
I am so happy that HALEEMA won Best Narrative Film as well as the Audience Choice Award at the 2019 WATERtown Film Festival at the Plumbing Museum.
The film is still going strong and it’s a topic is, unfortunately, more relevant than ever regarding the current refugee crises and the increasing water scarcity around the globe.
Thank you so very much for screening and recognizing HALEEMA at this year’s festival.
Check out these three scenes I wrote/directed and shot with a fantastic group of NYFA cinematography students.
