I’m happy to announce that “The Lancastrian”, with myself in one of the leading roles, has been nominated for this year’s Short Film Festival in Cannes! It was filmed in Berlin and directed by Philippe Chalem (France), another of whose short films was also shown in Cannes last year. For next year, he is planning a feature film that will be shot in Bucharest. If all goes as planned, I’ll be in it, too!

The Lancastrian

München 7

Tune in!

On 18/04/2012 at 6.30pm, ARD will air the episode “Wachtmeister Abdul” (Constable Abdul) of the early evening series “München 7″ in which I play a Turkish girl named Melek Armut.

While everybody at police station 7 of Munich is busy celebrating Karl Haun’s birthday, building contractor Mustafa Armut faces problems with one of his female tenants. Just a little while later, Melek Armut reports her father missing.

Henker & Richter

Tune in!

On 22/3/2012 at 6:30pm, ARD will air an episode of “Henker &amp Richter” featuring myself as Pia Zander.

A woman gets robbed in the bog of Büdringhausen. Reconstructing the crime doesn’t get any easier when pictures of a mysterious person appear. Thanks to grandma, rumours of the bog witch’s return start to spread, attracting hordes of tourists – much to the local economy’s delight. This is exactly what the culprit meant to avoid for there is still something left to be done in the bog…

CELLYWOOD!

The little German town Celle is upside down because here the new art film Verlangen (desire) is shot. A film about the anorexic boy Fabian who finds back his lost love for himself through a girl named Anna, but does Anna really exist or is she just a production of his mind?
