The documentary was shown in the section World Documentary Competition, it got a lot of great response and reactions: "Once Upon a Time in Venezuela shows us a culture as it is, which is incredibly rare in modern documentary filmmaking.

LITTLE GERMANS was nominated for the German Film Award and premiered at CPH:DOX

Our co-production Little Germans, an animated documentary by Mohammad Farokhmanesh und Frank Geiger, has been nominated for the DEUTSCHEN FILMPREIS 2019. The ceremony will be held at the Berliner Palais am Funkturm on May 3rd. We are very excited to see the reactios to this extraordinary Film, that chose to cover stories about children of right-wing-extrimists as it's theme.

About Little Germans:
Our children grow up in a world ruled by extremes: the fight for democracy on one side and the call for national isolation on the other side. Little Germans combines animation and documentary to tell the story of children born into extreme right-wing families. From a young age on they are groomed to hate everything that seems "foreign". How does it feel to grow up in a world, where empathy is subsidiary and "the nation" stands above everything? And who do those "little Germans" become once they grow up?
