Dedicated to the adventure of the real, we are specialized in documentary and hand- picked feature films.
Our name means "beyond the horizon". This is where we strive to go with our projects.
1979 is our most ambitious documentary project yet: a high profile investigation into a pivotal yet still unknown event of modern history that has 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 JAMMING ADDIS and GUZO NORTH recently selected by UNESCO), the ongoing GUZO series is a formidable trek into Africa's ancient heritage of music and culture, accompanying a world-class musician on his quest for the origin of Music. Other projects include historical investigations like RIGHT AFTER GOD about a rogue German military who almost succeeded uniting the Persian
tribes against the British Empire in WW 1; unusual investigations such as SEAMS OF DESIRE into the unspoken world of the female intimate in the Syrian capital of Damascus, and filmic essays like ART AND WAR about art in times of turmoil.
OUTREMER's return to feature film will be marked by MIRKOGNA - The Captive: based on a true story, MIRKOGNA follows a politically naïve young woman who falls in love with a resistance fighter and joins the student movement against the brutal military dictatorship that takes power in Ethiopia in the 1970s. When the “Red Terror” regime wipes out her entire generation, she is captured and has to confront the ultimate choice between sacrifice and survival.
Based on a true story, this epic story will be narrated by young Ethiopian director Hiwot Admasu Getaneh.
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.
