Solution Thinker

  Campaign Film

Godfathers of the campaign are historical characters from science, art and society who have advanced human history in very different ways. But how do you present people like Marie Curie, Pablo Picasso, Rosa Parks or Christoph Kolumbus in a way that the target group doesn't lose all courage to change because of reverence? Or they wonder why they weren't placed right in front of ZDF History?

Fictional key moments as inspiration for solution-oriented thinking

Our narrative trick is not to put the historical feat at the centre of the film, but the attitude with which our heroes may have stood out long before their breakthrough. We show the historical characters as children and adolescents in alleged everyday situations; which is an enormous falsification of history, but makes scenes possible that could have been key moments in world history. The result is a small speculative film about resistance, social norms and pioneering spirit.


The shooting takes place over two days with a ten-person team and a twelve-person cast on a really cold winter day in an empty industrial wasteland. Dolly tracks in deep mud, a huge butterfly frame and wind, explosions and child actors - this production really had everything that makes life so cruel and so beautiful for a film production.
