EIN KÖNIG REGIERT

Feature film

Karl is having a party for his company in a fancy restaurant. A suitable place to show off success to the world of business. Appearance is everything and casted actors are even better looking than real employees – the company is fake, the party a bluff. According to Karl, the world is in a legal state of war, in which only the fittest survive. Anything goes, It's just a matter of not getting caught. Karl is not mad, just madly determined to become a big boss.

WINNETONI

Feature film

Grumpy Toni decides to die on a platform «like an Indian». A nickname is found quickly and WINNETONI is suddenly of great interest to the neighbourhood, the press and the authorities. Before biting the dust, Toni wants to make peace with his son. There is only one thing Toni hadn't reckoned with: The beloved son hates his father. WINNETONI is a familiy story about lost hopes and public morals. 

Script in development.
