OutreMer

Dedicated to the adventure of the real, we are specialized in documentary and hand- picked feature films.

FACTUAL

1979 is our most ambitious documentary project yet: a high profile investigation into a pivotal yet still unknown event of modern history that impacted global relations ever since. An international coproduction between Germany, France and the USA, 1979 attempts to build a missing link between a tipping point in history and the turmoil of our present time.

After our experience with the films JAMMING ADDIS and GUZO NORTH (recently selected by UNESCO), the ongoing GUZO series is a formidable trek into Africa's ancient heritage, accompanying a world-class musician on his quest for the origin of Music. Other projects include unusual glimpses into the unspoken world of the female intimate in the Syrian capital of Damascus such as SEAMS OF DESIRE,

filmic essays like ART AND WAR about art in times of turmoil, and surprising historic portraits like RIGHT AFTER GOD about a rogue German officer who became T.E. Lawrence's competitor when he united the Persian tribes against the British Empire during World War 1.

FICTIONAL

Based a true story, MIRKOGNA follows politically naïve Frehiwot, a young woman who falls in love with a resistance fighter and the student movement against the brutal regime that took over Ethiopia in the 1970s and wiped out an entire generation. When she is captured, Fre is confronted with the ultimate choice between sacrifice and survival.

Helmed by young Ethiopian director Hiwot Admasu Getaneh, this epic story marks OutreMer's return to drama and fiction.

In addition to our own projects, we provide assistance for your project in Germany, providing access to federal funding through our two strategically positioned offices in Berlin and Hamburg, and our vast array of partnerships in other parts of Europe. Or you are a European producer who needs access into certain territories that usually are considered unaccessible - we can help you with this.
