Climate Change


  • UFM 2022 Festival Audience Award 5-25 Minutes: 3rd Place
  • Synopsis: The farmer Franz from the Bavarian Forest wants to change his business from maize to orange cultivation in 2030 due to climate change. But his plan threatens to fail because of unexpected reasons in the administration.
  • Director Statement: With the charm of a "Crocodile Dundee" from the Bavarian Forest, I wanted to tell this little story in a snappy and pointed way. Through precise observation and knowledge of the rural milieu, I wanted to create a witty and cheerful film that takes aim at its role models for the characters, but in no way denigrates them. The people from the countryside are likeable, pragmatic and grounded. For this reason, my two main characters are embodied by two proven greats of the Bavarian comedy genre: Sigi Zimmerschied and Johanna Bittenbinder. Bavaria is represented by the beauty of the rural idyll as well as by Munich as a "cosmopolitan city".
