7 years ago, I had an idea for a documentary film
"THE DEVIL LIVES IN BERLIN"!
Not getting any film funding, I wanted to give up the project...
But I bet against myself: "You will not give up! right?".
Then from the idea
"THE DEVIL LIVES IN BERLIN"
came something much more magnificent:
THE H I S T O R Y EXHIBITION
Now comes the film
VINO > WEIN, WE ARE ONE!
When I was 3 years old, my parents thought it was a good idea to move to Mallorca, Spain
and then when I was 7 we moved to South Africa. So I grew up in Johannesburg -
an important fact for the rest of my story:
I was always separated from my family in Europa. To handle this dramatic time,
I began painting and remained faithful to my art to this day.
At the age of 33, I traveled to Berlin for the first time. But on the first day, I had an encounter that would change my life forever. It was early autumn. The sun was still quite warm. I used the good weather and strolled down the boulevard 'Unter den Linden'.
I went into an old bookshop. Instinctively, I took the first book from a stack. The title was 'THE DEVIL LIVES IN BERLIN'. I was amazed when I saw the author´s picture on the back cover. He looked very similar to me, only much older and his name was MAXIMILIAN WEIN...
This was the first step to finding a whole new Family.
This is the true story behind the illusion of one the most creative art families!
