Many years back I had an idea for a thriller called CIRCUMSTANCES
A film trailer was created… The press and everybody loved it!
Then terrible „circumstances“ happened and the film was never made...





So, I made many films by myself....






by Dominik Wein

A great movie! A wonderfully told film,
which conveys a very personal picture of South Africa







In 2009, I made a bet:
To shoot a short film without a crew & even play the lead!
(Story, Production, Director, Camera, Effects, Cut)

Budget $ 100





Then I had an idea to make another documentary BUT
something much more magnificent came out.
An UNbelievable STORY with real ART...





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 in the world!
