Die Wette !

 

 

Vor 8 Jahren bin ich eine Wette eingegangen:
Einen Kurzfilm zu drehen, ohne Crew. Budget 100 $
(Story, Regie, Kamera, Effects, Schnitt & Hauptdarsteller)

DAS HAUS

 

 

 

Vor 7 Jahren hatte ich dann eine Doku-Filmidee „DER TEUFEL WOHNT IN BERLIN“…
Auf Grund von Filmförderungs- und Sendern Absagen konnte ich
erst mal nicht so weiter machen, wie ich wollte.

Ich bin mit mir selbst eine Wette eingegangen. „Du wirst nicht aufgeben!“.

Aus der Idee „DER TEUFEL WOHNT IN BERLIN“
ist dadurch etwas viel Großartigeres entstanden…

H I S T O R Y
Die UNglaubliche Kunstgeschichte!
und jetzt kommt der Dokumentarfilm dazu:

 

 

THE HEADLESS CHICKEN
A Documentary Film by Dominik Wein
(In Progress)

This is the story of an artist who had everything except for variety.
He did not use his head anymore and was bored doing the same thing day after day.
So he began to search and found an UNbelievable Family history.

Synopsis
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!
