"BWB by Dominik Wein. A great movie! A wonderfully told film, which conveys a very personal picture of South Africa." rbb




The bet !



"2009, I made a bet:
To shoot a short film without a crew. Budget $ 100
(Story, Director, Camera, Effects, Cut & Lead)





Then I had an idea to make another documentary film but something much more magnificent came out"

THE H I S T O R Y EXHIBITION by Dominik Wein




(In Progress)

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 authorĀ“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!
