The Villa Aurora in Los Angeles

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!
