TO CLOSE YOUR EYES
AND SEE FIRE
 -
COMING SOON

The first feature film by Nicola von Leffern and Jakob Carl Sauer is a long term documentary about Beirut's inhabitants, who are furious about needing to play the role of the phoenix. Clean, rebuild and move on, an all too familiar feeling. Even the big explosion of the city in 2020 did not bring about the desired change during the crisis of a century. To Close Your Eyes and See Fire is a poetic mosaic about the vacuum in life after tragedy.

PERLA - SHOOTING COMPLETED

The film is being expected to premiere end of 2024/beginning of 2025.

POSTPRODUCTION OF
GIRLS AND GODS

The new film by Arash T. Riahi and Verena Soltiz raises the question:
What happens if women decide to revolutionize religions instead of rejecting them? Radical feminist Inna Shevchenko (FEMEN) leads together with other female atheists a controversial journey into an age-old conflict between religion and women, encountering believers and theologians. Girls & Gods is a quest to find whether monotheistic religions can be feminist and whether feminism can be religious.

DIARY OF AN AMBASSADOR - IN POSTPRODUCTION

The documentary by Natalie Halla is about the Afghan ambassador in Vienna, Manizha Bakhtari, who is in a bizarre situation since the Taliban took power: she represents a country whose old government fled and whose new Taliban government has no international recognition. Under increasingly difficult conditions, she decides to stand up to the Taliban and continue her courageous fight for the rights of Afghanistan's women.
